Question about 1990 Toyota Celica
When the car is running it does not want to go into gear and sometimes when it does it will grind. with the clutch pushed all the way in at a red light i can let off the brake and the car pulls itself. all 5 gears are hard to find and sometimes have to turn the car off to shift from gear to gear.
Check your clutch master cylinder's fluid,if low or empty,then pay your transmission a visit,on the side of her belly,there's a clutch slave cylinder,a fluid line is connected to it,see if it's leaking,if so replace,if not, then your clutch is suspect.

SOURCE: shifting problems
start with the clutch fluid, is it full? check the clutch cable from the pedal to the transmission, does it have a lot of play in it, is it adjustable? check the bushings on the shifter base, does the shifter itself have a lot of play in it? i'd start with those, if all those are ok then it might be the clutch itself. when a clutch gets worn down it doesn't release fully causing a hard shift or grinding when going into gear. put the truck on a flat surface so it doesn't free roll at all, with the engine off, put the truck in first or reverse, press the clutch pedal fully to the floor and start the engine. let off the brake. if the truck moves at all it means your clutch cable is out of adjustment or its just getting worn out. provifing the shifter and the fluid level is good.

See if your brake lights are working you may have a blown stop fuse.
you can remove the small acsess panel by the shifter and put a somthing in the hole to manually release the shifter.

Your rattling noise in engine bay ,dose it do it only when you start up, and if so dose the rattle go when the oil light on dash goes out, If yes then its either Low in oil/your parking on a slope/engine bearings worn/oil filter change and change oil to 30/50 oil.
you should only downshift to 1st whan stopped but you can change up and down the g/box without a clutch with correct Revs

It sounds like your clutch isn't releasing properly. Do you need to adjust the pedal free play or bleed the hydraulics? If that doesn't fix it you may need take another look at the clutch you put in.

There is air in the system. The slave cylinder does provide pressure to return the pedal. Check to be sure that you have plenty of fluid in the master cylinder (clutch). Slowly work the pedal back and forth to try and remove air. (This usually works unless you have really lost all fluid. Once the air is remove depress the clutch while in gear. If it does not keep the car from moving then replace the slave and master cylinder. The parts are a little over $100. Hope this helps. I have one in the shop right now as a matter of fact...
