I have a problem with my 92 Geo Prizm 5 speed manual transmission. I could use some advice from someone knowledgeable about manual transmissions.
Here are the symptoms:
DURING cranking, in Neutral, the car races forward as if in gear and it will only stop rolling if I push in the clutch. Stuck in gear maybe?
My car is parked in the driveway on an incline without E-brake on and it wont roll backwards, I cant even push her down the hill. Only when I push in the clutch will it move. Clutch binding?
And lastly, with the car off I can shift into every gear fine except the shifter will just barely go into first.
Additional info: clutch fluid is level and I bled the slave cylinder, no help, I put a new clutch assembly on 2000 miles ago. Tranny was about half full on gear oil when this happened due to leaky axle seal. I need to know if the tranny is shot or if this is a clutch issue.
