Clutch will not engage
What year? What make? What model? If your vehicle is high mileage, I would suspect, in the absence of any particulars to the contrary, your clutch is due for repair.
A clutch overhaul will include a rebuilt pressure plate, a rebuilt clutch plate, resurfacing of your fly wheel and a new throw-out bearing and possibly the rebuilding of your 'slave' cylinder if so equipped. To gain access to these parts, it will be necessary to drop the drive shaft, unbolt and move the transmission toward the rear on a rear wheel drive vehicle. For a front wheel drive car, it will be necessary to remove the engine. Expect to pay at least $500.00 in the North American market for this repair. Your mechanic may tell you differently.
The procedures I described are general in nature in an effort to answer your question. Since you omitted the make and the model of the car, it is difficult to provide any more detail in this response.
