Question about 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara
I can't shift the into gear unless I turn the car off put it into first and then go. I can shift speeding up but can only sometimes downshift. It only sometimes goes into reverse. The clutch pedal feels a lot lighter to push down. Maybe it needs to be adjusted and isn't catching?? Or what I fear is I need an entirely new clutch. Any thoughts?
Make your adjustment to clutch, see how that works, but start saving up for a new clutch, or just have your inspection mechanic, take a look @ it for you, make the adjustment, and he can remove a cover and inspect the condition of your clutch with his own eyes. its a lot easyier for him than you. then, you'll know for sure. good luck

A clutch cable doesn't take much to install. Who told you $600.00?? You don't have to take the trans. loose to do this. All you do is unhook the cable from pedal and unhook if from the trans. This job should only take you an hour if you've never done it before. How long has the clutch been in your car?

Check under the dash where the clutch cable hooks up to the clutch pedal the splines shaft to the clutch pedal may be worn on the shaft. Weld or replace the cheap made parts

Check the cable clearance. Too much clearance will cause clutch slippage or total clutch disengagement. Adjust the cable so that the clutch pedal will be hard to press by hand .5 to .75 inch from its initial point.

The symptoms of a bad throwout bearing is a horrible noise that ONLY occurs when you are pressing on the clutch. And/or you have no clutch action at all - the car is either in gear or it's in neutral. Sounds just like your situation alright.
Usually bad throwout bearings damage pressure plate fingers to the point that they need replacing too. And while they are in there, they will want to replace the clutch disk too. And then lathe the flywheel flat again so that they don't have a repeat customer complaining about the lousy clutch $job$ he just got. Flat flywheels supposedly won't chatter on take off or clutch engagement, but it could be hose job where you get soaked as well.
I went this route once on a gremlin - $500. The only reason I paid up was that I had a real good job at the time, and then I've never been back either.
