MANUAL TRANSMISSION WONT GO INTO GEAR

2003 Mazda 6 • 117,500 miles

Last week I let me son drive my car and noticed after he drove it that 1st, 3rd and 5th gears were not shifting like they used to. The car would drive fine but it felt like the gears were not going all the way in. Today my battery died so I push started the car. I popped the clutch and the car started but now none of the gears will engage. I can move the shifter into the gears but when I let the clutch out nothing happens.

Sounds like the clutch is wore out.

Forgot to mention, I replaced the clutch approx 30k miles ago. The first clutch lasted close to 90k

If its physically going into gear but wont move when you let out the clutch whats left besides the the clutch?The clutch is always on untill the clutch hydralics releases it. You said it wasnt right since your son drove it so maybe something happened when he was driving it?
