MY CARS MANUAL TRANS IS SKIPPING

2003 Mini Cooper • 100,000 miles

When I take my foot of the clutch slowly it stars to raddle and makes it look like the car just does not want to move some times it works and sometimes it moves it continue out from 1-2gear and now its just about starting into 3rds gear it makes good sound of grinding

Sounds like clutch problem. Maybe pressure plate? You say it grinds when going into gear? Or possibly transmission is failing? Best to have mechanic check it out.

Yes thats what im thinking could be my clutch its not that sort of a griding sound when I put it into first gear it will move but when I go over 4-5rpm it will start skipping in first and when I shift to second gear it will start skipping over 5-6 rpm and now its just about starting to do the same in 3-4 gear
