Civic si: my clutch pedal is not able to disengage. it stays

Customer Question
my clutch pedal is not able...
my clutch pedal
is not able to disengage. it stays on a higher gear like 3rd or 4th not sure which one but when i start it i let of the clutch it will stall and motor dies. i already checked the master and slave cylinders for leaks, nothing is blocking the lines, clutch pedal still very strong, not sagging or anything like that and appear to be functioning normally. i bleed the clutch line. Everything on the outside seems to be working normally.
I had a shop install a excedy stage 1 clutch+flywheel+pressure plate.
Do you think it is the pressure plate? Clutch spring pop out? throw out bearing? or snycrhos?

Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
does the shifter move?or is it like it is stuck?
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
as far as i know the shifter is clicking and moving as if there is not trouble into all positions fine, it is not stuck. clutch is also functioning normally when engine off. the mechanics and pressure from the driver seat seem perfectly fine. you wouldnt know something wrong until after you start it.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
originally when car broke down it was stuck in 3rd gear . tow truck came and rocked the car back in fourth and it popped out. now it will not disengaged at all
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the clutch doesnt do its job i mean and release. so i cant go to neutral, it is stuck in gear but the stick is free to move
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
so,,it doesnt matter where the sfyer is,,it is like neutral?

so,,if you let out on the clutch,,it is as if it is a higher gear?and binds?
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
doesnt matter where the shifter is. it can go into all gears apparently from the driver seat. but it is in gear when you turn on the car. the clutch actually works and can go netrual that way but once you release the clutch pedal and even if the stick is in neutral. the car is in gear and it will stall like it is exactly in gear without gassing
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
ok..from the way you explain,,you have one of two possible problems
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
1-you need to check the shifter cables to make sure they arent broken..
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
so the movement of the stick is normal like there is no problems. you cant feel difference in the stick if you hold the clutch wether the car is on or off
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
2- you have an internalproblem with the transmission,,perhaps a broken shift fork
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
check the shift cable...but,i would think you have an internal transmission problem and the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced
Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Transmission Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
from the way you explain,,it isnt the clutch,pressure plate or the release bearing
