Q: Car's clutch is stuck.

asked by on

The car's clutch is stuck. I can change the gears, but the car does not move.

The clutch may have broke and is not engaging the transmission input shaft or the transmission input shaft has broke in the transmission. The only way to tell is to have the transmission removed and the transmission and clutch checked. It is going to be one or the other and the transmission has to be removed either way. I recommend to have a qualified mechanic check it out such as one from YourMechanic.
