I drove it fine for months and all of a sudden this morning the trans didn't let me shift into 4th from 5th so i shifted back to 5th and got home. After i had to leave my house again today it drove fine and once I stopped and left the store I wasn't able to shift into reverse...... so I shifted into 1st after i rolled (decline) it was hard to shift into 1st in general (grinding) let alone any other gear, then it wouldn't let me into any gear besides 2nd so I got home on that and now i can only shift my car when off but it doesn't let me shift into any gear from neutral when on.... HELP.
clutch pedal seemed to have the right resistance but it seems a little softer now, i doubt its the slave but I need help anyways

did you try to adjust your clutch pedal ?

Your flux capacitor might be going out, might need to replace it.

well since my trany is manual and it started slipping i jumped to the conclusion of it being the clutch but im considering everything Im gonna take a closer look at the slave

Check for leak on the clutch line first. Then bleed the line just to make sure there's no air in there. If theres no air...then try adjusting the clutch pedal first. It might be out of whack and its not engaging the clutch properly.

Most of the time, when you cant get in gear, its not the clutch...

i would not mess with the clutch pedal if the pedal height is normal. check your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. check the fluid level. if the fluid level is normal but very dark, the master cylinder or slave cylinder might be bad. try bleeding the slave cylinder. if that does not fix it, you might have to replace both the slave and the master cylinders. if you feel abnormal vibrations on the clutch pedal when you step on it or weird noises, your clutch disc might have fallen apart(like a spring or bushing coming out of its cage). worn out clutch disc will not have the symptom you have. if the clutch is not slipping, i doubt there is anything wrong with your clutch.

my clutch pedal height seems right but it seems just a tad softer than normal so I will still bleed it and check my slave again (doesn't look or feel like its malfunctioning), my clutch had been slipping before this. My friends civic wouldn't move anywhere when his clutch was bad but since his dad is a really good mechanic he swapped the clutch and its good. He told me it probably was my clutch (somewhat same symptoms rwd vs fwd). I might consider buying a used tranny since my other s14 needs one and ill just put the clutch kit on my "new one" any people got one for sale haha still taking help and tips anyways im only 18 and like all the knowledge i can get.....:l101:
