Alright, well I have a new clutch kit, a new transmission, I did a swap on both(didnt have my flywheel resurfaced, but Im getting the same problem I had when I bought the car, Ive had a bent fork and a destroyed clutch and pressure plate, now then Ive bleed the hydraulic system, I had the wizzards at autozone tell me my transmission needed only one quart, well it takes 2.4 quarts. Would that possibly be a reason? Im trying not to take my car up and drop the transmission. It wont go into gear unless the car is off I dont want to damage the transmission but this is has already put my budget for this car 4 grand I am a diy mechanic.

You need to drop the transmission and investigate the clutch assembly to me something is wrong in there

Bent forks and destroyed clutch indicates something wrong with the measurements of the clutch system and has nothing to do with low fluids, which would damage the transmission instead.

Did you check the adjustment of the master cylinder to pedal push rod clearance?
After installation of the clutch system and transmission, did you check for free travel of the clutch fork?

Well the destroyed clutches and the bent fork was because I didnt retract the petal adjustment and it added way to much presure, im getting presure and it wont go out any further, im about out of ideas of what it could be, it started doing this, and could it be the flywheel needs to be resurfaced which could cause the clutch to somehow drag on it?

If the flywheel area where the disk seats on is recessed excessively due to wear, the clutch would have loss of pressure and that would result in slippage when high torque output is achieved from engine.

Guess you would have to drop the transmission again.
