You need to fix the Leak in your hydraulic system to your clutch on your transmission. The reason that your transmission is not going  in to gear right is that the fluid is to low to push the throw out bearing to disengage the clutch fully. 
Once the fluid get's too low, you'll not be able to disengage the clutch to put it in to gear or change gear.
Check the fluid level to your hydraulic clutch reservoir and fill to the right level and fix the leak in the hydraulic lines.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, glad to help.

What causes my 1995 chevy pick up 5 speed manual transmission to not want to shift into gears after it gets warm or hot but first thing it does fine


Many internal parts could be the problem. I would replace the vacuum modulator on the passenger side of the transmission first. Near the back. Only thing with a vacuum hose to it.

I have a 98 Chevy cavalier , it has Manuel transmission, it will only go in 3rd and 4th gear, what could be the problem


It could obviously be the tranny is gone, but you would want to make sure you have enough clutch flood and the clutch is fully engaging. I had a leak in my 98 cavalier clutch fluid, and when it got low, it would not fully engage the clutch, simply making it hard to get into gear. Its DOT3 fluid. If so try reversing a little bit and gently tiring to get into gear. I believe 1st and 2nd gear share the same gear selection fork inside the tranny. Drain fluid and look for metal.

How do I check the oil level in slave cylinder for the clutch on 2006 chevy cobalt


First off, clutch hydraulics use ONLY dot 3/4 brake fluid, if you used any kind of petroleum product you have ruined the clutch master cylinder and clutch slave/actuator(GM's term)cylinder. The level is on the side of the reservoir. If you had to add fluid, you have a leak in the system, probably the slave cylinder first. A master cylinder leak would have fluid on the inside of the firewall, where the master cylinder is mounted(leaking at the back). You bleed clutch hydraulics as you would with brakes.

Why is my chevy s10 gears are getting harder to put in ?


I would look to see if the clutch master cylinder is low. It is smaller but like the brake master cylinder. If so check to see if the slave cylinder on the bell housing is leaking or the master cylinder is leaking. Low fluid or no adjustment will make it hard to get in gear.

Brake fluid leaked out . now no clutch


You neeed to fix the leak. That is bad for a hydraulic system. If you fill the clutch reservoiir up and bleed it, you might pick up a little clutch back, but it won;t be optimum until the leak is stopped.

I have a 99 gmc sonoma that won't go into gear and there is no presure on the clutch pedal it goes straight to the floor but the fluid level is still on full and the fluid has some black looking gunk...


It is confirmed that the clutch hydraulics has faulted. Since there is no clutch the gear links are not engaged. Possible that the master cylinder has failed, possible a leak in the system.
You will need to overhaul this section and the pedal will respond.
Also check on the transmission fluid and the gear settings.

My 1994 Nissan Altima's clutch is leaking fluid and the clutch goes all the way down to the floor, it will not go into gear


The solution is pretty cut-and-dry. Fix the fluid leak and your transmission will go into gear. I don't know what to tell you to fix exactly because I do not know where it is leaking from. If it is leaking from the slave cylinder, replace the slave cylinder; If it is leaking from the master cylinder, replace the master cylinder, etc.

Fixing just one part of the clutch may not be the best option for you however. Clutch parts seem to wear out all within a few thousand miles of one-another. Depending on how many miles are on your vehicle you may want to do a complete clutch replacement so you won't have any further clutch problems for several years.

My 1985 chevrolet s-10 pickup 4 speed clutch will not go into gear


These trucks are famous for the hydraulic master cylinder or the slave cylinder for the clutch to start leaking fluid out. When the fluid gets low it won't go in gear. Check the small resevor on the fire wall. Add dot 3 brake fluid if low. Be sure to pull the rubber cup out after taking the top off then add fluid if low.
