On the way home the other day, I noticed it was getting hard to shift into different gears, so when I got home I checked my fluid, it seemed low so I added fluid and assumed this would fix the problem. Not so, now if the car is on, it will not shift into any gear, not even reverse. However if you turn the car off, you can shift easily. Also if you put it into gear and then turn the car on you can drive it, but only in that gear. Is my clutch bad? It is a hydraulic clutch, please help!

Either the clutch master cylinder has gone bad or the slave cylinder has gone bad. This all can be done without reving the transmission. Just replace the parts and bleed the system. A bad clutch slips when in gear. You are having a problem dis-engaging the clutch.

Thank you so much for your quick response, I replaced the slave cylinder and the master cylinder and bled it. It will still not disengage, is there a way to adjust the clutch or a step I may have missed? Again thank you so much for your response.

Hydarulic clutches are genrally self adjusting. You might have a problem with the pressure plate. Meaning some of the fingers that pull the plate away may have broken. Otherwise, if there is no noise like a whirring noise you can rule out the throwout bearings. You will probably have to replace the clutch assembly.
