Tonight I couldn't get my car into reverse, the gears ground and it was impossible and I didn't want to force it. So I coasted out of my driveway and headed down the road. It was hard to get it into 1st and 2nd, but it was very, very cold and snowy, so I thought it would get better as the car warmed up more.
The more I drove, however, the harder it was to get into 1st and 2nd. I already have to push the clutch in clear to the floor to get it into 1st. Do I need a new clutch? Does my car have an adjustable clutch?

Ignition Coil, or Crankshaft sensor going bad. Change your spark plugs and wires then see what happens. Or could be your injectors are clogged. Try some pour in the tank Fuel Injector Cleaner like STP. Any little debris can mess them up.
Hi, just had this problem repaired. The lower arm bushings are bad...not the transmission. I ordered two sets from the nubira site (for the left and right sides of the car)...they are kind of like metal rings with rubber inside...this rubber dampens the shifting from the transmission. $250 - $300 job. Sure that's what it is...
Check all your linkage goin from your shift lever to your transmission. You might have messed it up. prolly will have to remove the center console to access it and find where it connects under the hood. look for broken cables or binding linkage.
