Q: I can't shift into any gear

asked by on July 30, 2017

I can't shift into any gear, I press down on the clutch and my car will still start ,yet I can't get the stick in to a gear also w

My car has 63000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

It sounds like you may have a throwout bearing that is hanging up. When the car is not running, nothing within the transmission is spinning, thus it is possible to put the car in gear. With the engine running, there is too much friction in the throwout bearing, resulting in your inability to shift into gear.

You may need to replace the following: 1. Clutch 2. Pressure plate 3. Throwout bearing 4. Flush fluid through slave cylinder

If the slave cylinder fluid flush does not solve the issue after the clutch overhaul, a new slave cylinder should be considered next. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your vehicle to properly diagnose and repair.
