Question about Cars & Trucks
It sounds to me as though your hydraulic clutch cylinder needs bleeding. Bleed much the same as bleeding brakes.

What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.
Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.

Testimonial: "then what would it be?"
did you bleed the hydralic clutch system on this vehicle? = air in system or not bleed properly.
most of the flywheels for this model were not to be machined...... however it is ok to machine these only slightly but you must machine the surface the clutch plate contacts with the same amount as the outer raised section the pressure plate bolts to.
new flywheels have painted stamped writing saying do not machine...so if hydralic system is ok find out about flywheel.
also may pay to check clamping force of pressure plate most clutch places can do this or some workshops that is if fingers on pressure plate are all at the same height, not broken or cracked..

You can use two small flathead screwdrivers. What you need to do first is the unclip the connection. Once you unclip it, you need to push in on the smaller side of the clip with a regular flat head screwdriver. When you push it in, you also have to try to push the hinged side clip in as well. The hinged side clip needs to be straightened out so the you can pull the filter pipe out. I found the easiest way to do this is to line the two opening up, and while I'm pushing on the smaller side of the clip, stick a small screwdriver on the backside and pry it out. It is a pain to do it without the special tool, it took me about 10-15 minutes to make pry the green "ring" off so that I could pull out the line.

SOURCE: cannot shift properly
My Saturn did the same thing - twice. Where the clutch cables connects to the shifter box(??) there is a little clip that had fallen off. The first time this happened, the mechanic told me that I needed to replace the whole shifter box - costing me $400 dollars. The second time - about two years later a different mechanic charged me $15 for the clip and labor.
