The clutch was replaced 30000 miles ago, it was driving perfect then i went to go drive it today and it wont go into any of the gears, i was going to replace the clutch slave cylinder and the clutch master cylinder, and the clutch hydraulic hose first, could that fix the issue, or has my clutch gone out again?

    it could if the clutch is not moving when you push the pedal. otherwise, it may be the clutch that has failed.

    Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir level first. If it is low to empty, put some dot3 or better to at least fill it to the low line, pump the pedal a bunch and then check for signs of leakage. If the fluid level is ok and no leaks found, does the pedal feel as if it is operating as normal? If the new clutch wore out and is slipping it would not cause the vehicle to not go into gear. If anything it would go into gear easier. Let us know how you make out so we can further assist you.

    we did try and put fluid in, we are going to replace the master cyclinder and the slave, and the hydraulic line, i thought the same thing, it seems like it is not getting the fluid and it i thought that it would be easier to go in as well. I will let u know what happens.
