asked by on

My car turns on fine but I can not switch gears when it's on.

My car has 68999 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Have the clutch system checked to see if it is releasing the clutch so You can change gears. Look in the clutch master cylinder to see if the fluid is full or if it leaked out. If no fluid in reservoir then you have a hydraulic leak in the hoses or lines to the clutch slave cylinder.
