TRANSMISSION WON'T ENGAGE

1999 Honda Civic

Transmission problem
1999 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 125, 00 miles

Got a 99 civic with this problem: Car starts, transmission shifts but car won't move.

Clutch pedal travels all the way, there are no noises when engaging/disengaging the clutch or starting the engine, don't see any oil leaks anywhere nears the trans or on the axles going into it. Everything seems to be fine except when I shift to any gear the car does not move. Just stays there as if in neutral.

Yes, the brake is not on, if it were and the trans engaged the car would stall!

Hi sp103154,

Either the clutch has failed or the drive train has been dislodged.

Check the CV inner joints to see if they had been forced out of their seats.
