Question about 1996 Saturn SL
The clutch is not loose, The gear shift goes into gear fine, the car does not go forward or backward, it just revs.
Assumption- you have a manual transmission; (The gear oil part is throwing me).
First guess. Your clutch is absolutely shot. It will not make a 'loose' sound, but when you release the clutch in any gear including reverse, you get no (or almost no) motion. Without more information, this is the most likely possibility.
Solution is to get the car towed in and have the clutch replaced.
Second guess (less likely): There is something broken in the transmission which will require a trip to th e shop. Third possibility: Something bad has happened to one of your axle shafts to disconnect it from the transmission or wheel. Mybe a brooken drive shaft. very rare. Hope this helps.
