    You either have a bad clutch, or bad clutch hydraulics.

Just a thought
We had problem with gear being difficult to select.
Found that one of the gearbox to engine bolts was loose.
Difficult to get to them but when tightened the gears select ok.

Either the clutch has gone or the cable has snapped both are very expensive to fix. if you have a good pedal then it is most likely the clutch.

Car starts fine just started this problem,can't depress button on floor shifter to get out of park. unless physically remove the park shift release cover on the side of the shifter and depress the white...

This car has a lock out device as all vehicles have. You need to depress the brake firmly to shift into gear as you may know. The solenoid that retracts the lock out for the shifting is at fault and needs to be replaced. You will see it if you remove the entire top of the shifting console

Shifter feels fine and so does the clutch pedal but only goes into first none of the other gears please let us know im thinking about buy this car thanks its a 91 saturn sl

Keep the hell away from it, many things changed after the first model year which was 91, Spend another 50 bucks and get a 92. Pull up the shifter boot and look at the shift cable ends where they attach to the bottom of the shifter. Most likely the bushings will be broken.

After starting the car and pressing on the clutch, my shifter wont go into any gears, i go to put it in first and the shifter itself wont go in, what could cause this

If the shifter feels loose, the shifter linkage / damper to the gearbox became disconnected, or broken. These parts are serviceable, and should be replaced when shifting ceases to be accurate, and gears are hard to find. If the shifter feels normal, then the clutch is out of adjustment and not disengaging completely, or there is a failure of some sort inside the gearbox.

Shifter goes into lock mode, why?

Automatic cars have a built in safety to prevent the shifter from accidentally shifting into gear. Most cars require pressing on the brake to disengage this locking system and some require the pressing of the brake along with pressing the release on the shifter to shift it into gear

Easy fix! Remove boot, take out four screws, shifter pops up, replace bushing! Keep it in neutral before starting.
