I lost the ability to shift my 5 speed all of a sudden coming home from work. I could shift to other gears but would have to FORCE it in. It would make a "grinding gear" noise as it went in, almost like the clutch wasn't disengaging all the way. And as I would let out the clutch it would make the same noise until it was fully released. After making it home in 3rd gear only, I parked it in the yard and now I have NO movement, foward OR reverse. The last time I worked on a clutch they weren't using these "slave cylinders'. So I know NOTHING about them and someone suggested to me that, that might be my problem, now that I have started the removal of my tranny! Though not unbolted from the motor yet, before I proceed any further, what sounds like the problem to you? Slave cylinder OR clutch?
have the same problem?
