Check the neutral-saftey switch.  If it is a clutch, the starter will generally engage and the car will generally lurch forward.  Most newer cars are equiped with a switch that detects when the car is in-gear & wont permit it to turn over.  Could be the clutch but go for the cheap fix first.

97 vw gti will not shift into gear when car is on but shifts into gear when turned off just fine , will f Grind if I force it into gear when car is running , pedal feels a little stiff as well ,


The clutch is not releasing/disengaging. Your clutch linkage (if you have mechanical linkage) or hydraulic clutch system may not be working properly to release the clutch. If you had the work done by a shop, take it back to them and explain the problem. They should stand behind their work.

My 97 Saturn SL2 won't go past 30 mph. Even with


I guess my first question would be - are you saying it is slipping in 3rd gear ? If you push the gas pedal to the floor it should downshift into a lower gear.
If it is slipping, or not upshifting into 3rd gear, I'm afraid chances are the transmission is toast.
You can take it to a couple of shops for estimates but they will probably want to pull the pan and take a look inside.

Sounds like a drive shaft but you would hear a clonking noise so it could be the clutch gone ,if i was their with it infront of me i could soon tell you the problem but from afar ? ask a local mechanic to have a look for you as this is one of them questions its impossible to give a correct answer
