I saw a couple of similar topics, but none seem to mirror my experience exactly.
Once in a blue moon, on my 2013 Nissan Sentra SV Manual 6 spd, If I'm, say, idling at a red light in neutral, I'm unable to get it back into gear. The stick just literally hits a wall and won't move.
Now this has happened occasionally over the years, and generally just re-engaging the clutch fixes it immediately. I think they even mention this can happen in the manual. It was incredibly rare, and not a big deal.
However, it's happened twice in the last 2 months or so, and those times it took maybe 7 or 8 tries (of releasing and pressing the clutch) before I can finally get into 1st gear.
I also tried 2nd gear when this happens (with no luck), although I don't believe I tried any other gears, now that I'm thinking about it.
Could my clutch just be going? I bought the car about 4 years ago and the clutch hasn't been changed while I've owned it. I always thought the clutch generally just goes immediately. But can there be symptoms like this leading up to it?
