When I put car in neutral and start engine I can not get transmission (manual) to go into any gear. If engine is started when clutch is pushed in, the car will run but acts like something is slipping. (Takes off real slow). I can shift gears but it's real difficult. Need help!

Hi,

Could be a few different reasons for this:

- Clutch cable frayed / stretched / about to break
- Clutch Pressure plate broken (not releasing disc when pedal is pushed)
- Trow-out bearing lever cracked.
- Clutch Pedal Cluster Broken Cracked (too much play causing less movement to be transmitted through clutch cable)
