So do you have full pressure on the clutch pedal all the way pushing it down or does it drop some then get pressure?

It dont fall to the floor if thats what ur asking. It still like pumps with some pressure just doesnt allow the gear to go from neutral to first in the (transmission?) Or any other gear at that. I can play with the shifter it falls into the gear slot just seems like the clutch aint catching the gears to drive on stays in neutral. But for some reason (maybe the sensor) allows me to start it when I apply the pressure to the pedal and turn the key. I just dont wanna claim its the clutch and spend alot of money and find out it was a bolt or something yk.

No what I was asking does the pedal go down some from the top some before it builds pressure?As opposed to having pressure from the top all the way down. As far as it starting with the clutch pedal being pushed he nothing to do with pressure in the clutch pedal.I have seen a lot of clutch slave cylinders go bad on those causing hard to get into gear low. Clutch pedals as well as no clutch pedal.

If the hydraulics have full pressure and the clutch isn't fully releasing then it sounds like you have a bad clutch pressure plate.
