Can you move the shifter into gear? Or is it that it won't engage in gear once you shift into drive or reverse?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a 6 speed manual, it was difficult to get into all gears. I waited a while started car again and all seems to be OK now. Any ideas? Is it air in the system?
Expert:  Nate replied 1 year ago.
it could be air in the system . Or it could be a worn-out clutch. Does the clutch pedal seem OK when shifting.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah. New clutch fitted a few weeks ago!
Expert:  Nate replied 1 year ago.

The only thing it could possibly be clutch maater cylinder going bad or possibly air in the system. is it still acting up or just that one time?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I would guess that it is a problem with the clutch master cylinder, but it is hard to tell if its not doing it all the time.
