Q: Rough shifting. Manual trans.

asked by on

Gears shift fine with car off. Vehicle running... it's hard to shift into gear (grinds badly), and when I do the car will move forward/ backward with clutch fully depressed. No visible leaks with new master cylinder, slave and hydraulic lines. Lines have been bled as best as I can get them. New disc, pressure plate and TO bearing as well. Aamco said I have a collapsed pressure plate. I'm wondering if I installed the TO bearing wrong. Could this cause the pressure plate to collapse? Does a clutch peddle adjustment need done? HELP!!!
