5 SPEED TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS on 1996 Geo Prizm

MY 96 GEO PRIZM STARTS JUST FINE BUT WHEN I PUT IT IN FIRST GEAR IT BARELY PULLS AND WHEN I TRY TO PUT IT IN SECOND GEAR THE ENGINE REVS UP HIGH. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM WITH MY CAR?

It sounds like the clutch is worn out. The clutch disc, pressure plate and release bearing will have to be replaced. Requires removing the transmission.
