I drive a 1997 SAAB 900 4 door, 120,000 miles, standard transmission. SO my clutch cable snapped the other day and I had it towed to my mechanic. I just got the car back this evening, and I noticed that I am having a difficult time getting into gear. In some cases I feel like when I am shifting, I really have to force it into gear. On top of that, if I try to shift into reverse while the car is running, there is this horrible grinding! I can't shift into reverse at all unless I completely turn the car off. None of this was an issue before. It is Friday and I am going to call my mechanic on Monday, but I would like to have a better idea of what is going on, and what I should ask them to do. Will a simple adjustment take care of this?
