So is the clutch pedal nice and hard all the way down?Or does it drop down some before getting hard?

Did you torque the clutch pressure plate according to specs? Been here before with the same symptoms if its not tightened properly

So when you went to pull out of the store and couldn't shift anymore was that before or after the repair?Also why was the clutch etc replaced in the first place?

That was before the repair and I thought it was the clutch and while I had it apart I just put in the new clutch anyways

Do you hear any type of noise before the clutch assy replacement-? Curiosity-what was the torque -lbs/psi that you used-

The clutch disc was put in the correct way?If it wasn't It won't release when pushing in the clutch. Most of the cars that I replaced the clutch for not being able to shift until I shut them off the pressure plate fingers were worn down uneven so when you pushed down on the clutch only part of the clutch was releasing not the whole clutch.
