Question about Cars & Trucks
No previous warning while driving it just stop engaging.
If the transmission has stopped engaging, you probably have a transmission problem. Mechanical clutches need to be dry and clean to work properly. If the rear oil seal on you engine goes, you will get a lot of engine oil on your clutch, which will make it good and slippery, all the while feeling as firm as ever. Check for oil where the bell housing joins the engine block. A few drops is probably ok, more may indicate a problem. The cure is to replace the defective seal and the clutch itself after washing off all of the oil. Probably not a job you want to undertake yourself. So if you are going to get a mechanic involved, get one now and ask for a diagnosis.

Hi. Let me try to lend you a bit of assistance, also.
My fellow expert Benimur is very correct with his input to you.
But...Air does not get into your clutch hydraulics unless the fluid has leaked out at some point. As long as the cylinders and tubes are intact, I would doubt that air is the issue. Short of pulling the transaxle, and inspecting the clutch, there is really no other way to determine your issue properly.
Personally, I think that you haven internal problem with the clutch assembly. It could be worn fingers on the clutch plate, a worn clutch disc, or something as simple as the throwout bearing is hanging up on the input shaft collar.
If Beni's suggestions does not help, you are going to need to pull the trans off, and inspect the clutch items mentioned above.
Thanks for choosing FIxYa, we wish you the best of luck; let us know how it turns out.

you'll have to pull off the interior panel. window in the up position. on the lock cylinder there is a clip that you have to pull off and an arm that actuates the lock. pop the lock out. reverse to install.
