I had this same problem with my 1998 SL2 after about 170,000 miles. There is a plastic bushing at the end of the shifter cable that holds the cable to the shifter - it probably broke. Remove the center console inside the car to access the bottom of the shifter. I checked my local Saturn dealer to find the replacement cables (come as a set) are more than $200. So I went to Lowes and bought a beam clamp and a large washer to hold the cable to the shifter. It has been working fine for more than 28,000 miles and cost less than $3

The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.

well it got stuck originally right??might be time for a rebuild the cable does need the right amount of tension to push and pull,the linkage may need proper adjusting as well

Try to double clutch the clutch
pedal. How to double clutch; push the clutch in moving the stick to neutral,
then release the clutch and then push it back in and shift into first or second
gear. If it works then it is not the
shift linkage and could be a clutch adjustment.
First how far do you have to release the clutch pedal until the clutch plate
starts to engage? If only an inch or so the clutch pedal needs to be adjusted,
which is an easy fix (this is more common). The other possible problems could
be the clutch plate, throwout bearing of syncros could be bad. If it is one of
the previous problems double clutching should buy you some time.

sounds like your washers/bearings/spacers finally degraded. To make sure, pop off the little flexy cover. You will see a linkage that goes straight into the transmission. If the bearings there (the little white plastic ones) look eaten up, that's most likely your problem.
