My manual Saturn has been shifting stiff for several months. It has become almost impossible to shift gears.
when I can't shove it into a gear it sometimes helps to let up off the clutch and push it down again. What could be wrong?
Do you
have the same problem?

Then it sound's like your clutch isn't releasing all the way when you push the clutch in. So when you push the clutch in is the clutch pedal hard pushing it down all the way?Or does the pedal drop some before it get's hard?

I was asking if the pedal had pressure all the way down or if it dropped down a little then had pressure. Meaning you had a bad clutch master/slave cylinder.

Then the first thing I would try is to replace the whole clutch master/slave cylinder as a assembly. They sell it as a sealed system no bleeding get it that way.I found one for 50 are you intrested?
