Out of the blue, car will not go into any gear when car is running. Turned off, it seems to go into any gear. Is it clutch, solenoid, gear selector, master cylinder?/ Note: 6 speed manual tranny.

Most likely the MC. Make sure it is full of fluid.

Thanks for input. I checked master cylinder level. It was just a tad low. ((Not low enough to suck air.) Is there a way to bleed this master cylinder like a brake system? If not, how much of a job is it to change out?
