SHIFTING PROBLEMS

1992 Mazda MX3

Transmission problem
1992 Mazda MX3 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

Hello, I have a serious problem with my 5 speed mazda mx3. Here is the situation. Weather the car is off or on it does not want to shift gears. When the stick is in the neutral position and you go to let the clutch out it bogs down and acts like its still in gear. I have checked the transmission fluid and filled it and was able to get the car in every gear but after a few mins it went back to not shifting at all. It did make a woaring noise when I was able to let the clutch all the way out and it went away when engaging the clutch once again. While I was able to have the tires spinning I could hear what I would describe as metal to metal rubbing, not grinding. The fluid level is good on the clutch/brake reservoir too.
Any ideas?
