thank you! I bought this car for my son and I raise him alone(mom). We are assuming it is his clutch because it starts, goes into gear but doesn't move when you step on the gas. I was wondering what parts do I need to purchase, I was told the flywheel and throw out bearing needed to be replaced along with the clutch? Thanks

it sounds like you are correct. you need a clutch kit which has disc, plate and bearing. flywheel may or may not need to be replaced. it depends on how badly it is hot spotted. make sure you get fluid for the trans as well. you will loose fluid in the process. Roy
