Question about Saturn SL
I mistakenly lifted the clutch before putting it in neutral, and instead of stalling, I heard a loud bang and the engine kept running. With the engine on, I can put it in 1st 2nd and 3rd without the clutch, but must depress the clutch to for into 4th, 5th or reverse. However, the reverse still isn't engaged when I lift the clutch and apply gas.

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.

Your shifter cables have gona bad, i had the same problem and its not your clutch thats causing the problem. Your shifter cables are just worn out and you need to replace them

Ok I see a manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch.
Get some fluid in that reservoir before you burn up the synchronizers.
Basically your clutch isnt disengaging because you are out of fluid. Next you need to find where the fluid is going. Likely the clutch slave cylinder is leaking and needs replaced. Pretty easy actually if you are handy with a wrench.
