Trouble started popping out of 5th gear, then also 2nd gear, then all the gears.
Then it wouldn't go into gear, it would go in if I gave it gas, enough to get it home. I was able to drive it to a shop, in 2nd gear, it would go into gear if I gave it gas. The shop guy could not get it it go into gear and said it was stuck.
I tried to drive it home but it now wouldn't go at all. I can move around the gears with the car off, but turn it on and try to go, it grinds, bucks and stalls. Even in neutral. I can push in the clutch, turn it on, but I can't let it out. In neutral it grinds, bucks then dies. I tried 1st, hard to get it in, but it acts the same as neutral.
The not going into gear happened all in one day, the popping out of gear happened all within one take of gas. I've only filled it up once since I bought it.
I can't find a repair shop,that can tell me anything other than bring it in. I have to have it towed so I want some idea of what kind of shop I should take it to.
Two shops said it's the clutch, one 12 hours of labor, the other 15, one shop said, 115 to tell me if it's worth fixing. How can he tell without taking it apart?
What should I do? Know any good transmission shops on Oahu? Is it replace the transmission and the clutch and the trnsmission cables?
