Re: clutch not working right
Check your fluid in the reservoir under the hood, on the firewall, make sure it's not low. If level is ok the pedal should be adjusted, and if that doesn't fix it, U will need a new clutch most likely. Try the fixes in this order, The 1st may do it. Let me know what u find. good luck! countrycurt0

I would think that the clutch itself is shot. If it was the slave cylinder or the master cylinder, you would not be able to get the car into gear when the engine is running. If it goes into gear fine, but just doesn't want to move....it means your clutch is not griping.
If the clutch is hydraulic operated, you need to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder, down on the transmission housing. Bleed it just like you bleed brakes of air in the line-open bleeder valve, someone pushes clutch pedal slowly to floor, close valve, and repeat until fluid comes out valve in a steady stream. Make sure the clutch reservoir is full before starting. It uses regular brake fluid. If not hydraulic, it would be cable operated. Adjust the cable until clutch pedal is right.
The hydraulic clutch works much like the brake system, there is a master cylinder with a piston and spring that should keep the pedal up. You may have to take the clutch master cyl off and inspect the internal parts.
it's not if you have hydraulic system.
check to see if the clutch pedal is firm and has pressure
start your engine, depress the clutch pedal and put it in gear
if it goes in gear easily and the car won't move then you need clutch
Your clutch system works the same as brakes do. The necessity to bleed tells you that there is a malfunction permitting air into the system. Check where the pedal rod goes into the firewall under the dash, the line itself, and the slave unit (some are inside the bellhousing...look for fluid dripping from bottom to verify if leaking) Not unlike brake master, they can also internally bypass. If you find no leaks, change master. Bleed system and you should be fine
