Hi my name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you with this issue .. Okay if you lost drive while in gear then the clutch has come to its end of life .So if you can select each gear with out using the clutch and have no drive in any of the gears then clutch plate has warn downfor this to happen you don't need to have any clutch burn smells , as clutch release bearing may have collapsed,pressure plate lose its pressure etc what ever the transmission will have to come out for inspection . Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed. Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,A bad rating does not constitute a refund.If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .Kind regards Greg.

I think the issue is the slave unit as I can't select any gear
Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.
Select a gear with the engine off and the hand brake off and then try and push the car if it will nor move forward and you feel resistance then the clutch is okay and you may have a slave cylinder or master cylinder issue .Check the master and slave cylinder for fluid leaks , Do you have pressure on the clutch pedal , does it feel good or no pressure what so ever .
