Is this a manual transmission?

Ask Your Own Car Question

Typically this is a worn out clutch causing the problem. When the engine is running it's not separating the engine and transmission like it's supposed to. This makes it difficult to shift into any gear when the engine is running. When it's off the transmission isn't spinning so then you can shift.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

OK, could bleeding the clutch help?

Only if it is staying on the floor when you press it. If it is, then you aren't getting pressure to the pressure plate to engage the clutch.

OK, thank you. I will try to bleed the clutch..., if it will not help, will have to find some where to change the clutch. There is one more Q I have, if possible, when engine is worm, it is hunting/surging on idle speed a little. It dose it sometime, not constantly.
What can be the reason for that? Thank you. Igor.

This is a best guess because it's not consistent, I would suspect the mass air flow sensor unless it's a diesel. Sometimes you can test this by unplugging the sensor, then drive it and see if it's better. Since it's not happening all the time though, you might have some difficulty trying the test.

If it is a diesel, I am really not sure. I have no experience with diesel to be honest.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Also, kindly remember to rate my answer.
Thank you so much!!​
