Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No the check engine light is not on. It is a 6 speed manual, I put it in gear let off the clutch and nothing happens.
Transmission Mechanic: Fix_It_Man, Repair Supervisor replied 6 months ago

Thank you. It sounds like the clutch has failed. I usually check and make sure that the hydraulic unit it releasing. If it is then the clutch has failed in the transmission.
