i parked my car in my driveway and when i tried to drive away i started the car but i could not shift to reverse(manual transmission) then i back up on neutral because the parking its a slope, after i tried to shift to 1st or any other gear and it wouldn't shift, but when the engine its not running it does shift......what could the problem be?

Initial thoughts sounds like a clutch issue. You could have a leak in the hydraulic system - a slave or clutch master cylinder issue. Or the clutch disc could be worn out. Check the fluid under the hood at the clutch master cylinder - if low, fill it with DOT3 brake fluid. This could be a sign of a hydraulic leak. Good luck.
When I turn the key it tries to turn on but it wont. The parked light turns on but also the drive light. Like if it was in drive. After leaving it for more than an hour it turns on fine. I was told...
my gear shift wont move out of park.. it goes in to gear but it wont move anywhere what can I do
the S light on my car came on and wont go off.when i get ready to pull off it act like it dont want to pull and will not change gears but it will drive good once i get going.What wrong
transmission is stuck in 1st gear,you can crank and move car with clutch,but wont shift,could shifter linkage be binding,or can shifter be taken off at trans,and be cleaned,thanks.
