SOURCE: Clutch Failure
Gary, I've worked in a tranny shop for quite some time now and I've seen this problem before. I'm not going to tell you this is the problem, but it should put you in the right direction. I'm pretty sure the problem your having is indeed in the gearbox itself. Sorry for the bad news, but it sounds like your syncronizers are out of mesh. These ring type sleeves make sure that when you shift gears, it meshes the teeth of 2 gears together. Basically, times everything together. My suggestion would be to take it to a tranny shop and get an opinion from a mechanic, seeing on how it is a major job....and as for the clutch problem, it could be many different factors. Flywheel, Slave cylinder, driving habits, release bearing....and the list goes on. Hope this help you.

Look for WETNESS at the Master cylinder, and at the Slave cylinder, attached to the Bell housing. The loss of fluid is reducing the Stroke of the Push Rod, which will create Clutch Drag, as you appear to describe.

A note to the first answer, if the clutch chatters in first gear that is indicative of a bad pressure plate or broke clutch springs, if it is not removed and repaired soon the clutch will shatter and damage the flywheel and possibly the input shaft and the the pilot bearing which could damage the transmission. There is also a possibility of the spring coming out of the clutch plate and wedging between the flywheel and pressure or clutch plate and causing severe damage to the internal parts just mentioned.
