Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 4 months ago.

Are you able to press down on the clutch and move the shifter into all the gears, either with or without the engine running or both?

Expert:  Mike S. replied 4 months ago.

If not, This transmission uses a hydraulic clutch setup and has an internal slave cylinder, which is a source of frustration for anyone having a slave cylinder failure, as it requires the entire transmission to be removed.
