    Make sure the clutch is working down at the trans. before you tear it down. might just be a clutch cylinder

Car wont move when in gear on a manual transmission

If the engine stalls with the vehicle in gear and the clutch released, your brakes are locked.
If the engine continues running as though you are in neutral, your clutch has failed.

Are you losing antifreeze from your radiator? If so, check the radiator for air bubbles with engine running. If bubbles are coming up in the radiator, you could have a head gasket problem.

P reg 520i, water is not going round the engine, changed the water pump & thermo, heater not blowing warm, but not overheating.

if its not overheating your water is circulating and working normally
your heater core or rad could be airlocked open a top heater hose and fill slowly making sure no air in system run for a while then top up can take a while to clear the air
also make sure heater valve is operating

I can put my 1994 toyota tercel in gear without pushing in the clutch, what could the problems be?

Do you mean with the engine off? If so, that is normal. The clutch just allows you to disconnect from engine when it running. With the clutch released and engine running the gears are spinning all the time. When in neutral, the chain of gears to the final drive is incomplete. When you engage a gear you are completing a chain of gear connections to the wheels. If engine is running, you will grind gears untill you press clutch, making a temporary break in the chain, allowing the gears to stop spinning and you to engage one.

You can infact use 1st gear as a kind of parking brake as it holds the car from rolling (in most cases) , with engine OFF, - BUT this is not advised as the only parking brake.
