Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Sounds like your clutch went out.

You have to remove the transmission and inspect the clutch, and replace. You can get a clutch kit. It is also a good idea to have the flywheel resurfaced or replaced at this time.

Oh boy. Thank you. A little too big of a project for me. But will take it in asap. Do you how much

It depends on the shop, dealer will be the highest price. You can save money by buying your own clutch kit from or similar. Shops will mark up the parts prices.

I need both of these kits?

Yes. The first should be the clutch kit, second should be the flywheel, I would get both.
