    Locked up on you as in...what happened?

    Hearing a noise in neutral can be the throwout bearing making noise...which is part of the slave cylinder in the bell housing of the transmission, which is really succeptable to failure anyway on this particular transmission anyway... I would suggest someone checking it with you locally.
