Re: wont go into gear
It sounds as if you have a clutch fault although the level is ok the master cylinder may not be working or the slave cylinder, the easiest option is to take the car to your local mechanic and have it checked out.

the past couple of days my gears have been sticking, last night it got stuck in 1st but now have manage to get it out of 1st but now it wont go back into gear. when the car is on it wont go into any gear but when its off it will??? anyone know what the problem could be???
It could be the cable binding up inside the sleeve or stuck detents inside the transmission. Try to find the cables under the hood, disconnect it from the transmission then try to move the shifter in the direction it was stuck before (side to side or up and down).
hi, if when you put it into gear and you lift your foot off the clutch then if your engine revs up without the actual power going to the wheels like when you say the revs change this indicates that your clutch is slipping, i wouldnt say their was a problem with either the cylinder master or slave and i wouldnt say it needed flushing out the problem you are having it that your clutch is slipping due to it being to low.
You need to get the clutch replaced sooner rather than later due to the fact that if your clutch plate shatters due to it being running on the rivets and not the actual clutch plate then this can cause the clutch to collapse and this will then cause damage to the master and slave cylinder and if you was driving at the time you would have no clutch at all and the car would be stuck in gear and you wouldnt be able to tow it as it would be stuck in gear.
You need to get the clutch and pressure plate the thrust bearing changed this will then solve your problem.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
once hot it presents this problem?..when fluid pressure is lowest is when it is hottest...can you service transmission with new filter and fluid and be sure all lines up to trans cooler at bottom of radiator are clear?
