Pin on end of slave cylinder looks like its going to fall out. There seems to be no suction to pull pin back off plate when pedal is released. The plate is moving as it should

When the ignition is on I can select any gear as soon as engine is running then I'm unable to select gears. When I put foot on clutch pedal when enginr is running there is a grinding noise.
