You can be rest assured with out a doubt that your slave cylinder has failed miserably......brake fluid on the floor of the inner cab of the vehicle is a very nice tell tale sign also...../you can go forward with your repair in confidence....

I installed a complete clutch & Flywheel. I popped outta 1st gear & won't go into any gear whatsoever. Linkage & slave cylinder work! feels like it's going into gear but when i let clutch out nothing


Isolate the problem. Sound like clutch is stuck and not disengaging. Engine off put in gear and rock the vehicle,, with help from a friend press clutch pedal while in gear and have friend push, you will know if the tranny is ok and clutch is stuck. Now check the clutch, slave etc for engagment and disengagment / Clutch linkage- movement/travel may need adjustment or you have something wrong in the reassembly..

Do you mean you can't get the clutch to DISengage? You need the clutch to disengage - 'unlock' the transmission input shaft from the flywheel - in order to change gears.
If you put the transmission in 1st gear and start the engine and the truck starts moving with the pedal depressed, the clutch IS engaged. I think you mean that you can't get it to disengage so you can stop without killing the engine, and can change gears without a lot of grinding.
If this is the case, check to see that the clutch cable or linkage (if you have mechanical linkage) is properly adjusted, or that you hydraulic lines and slave cylinder are bled if you have a hydraulically controlled clutch.

Manual transmission will not shift with engine running but will with engine off


The reason is that the gears are turn with the engine running, like the clutch is not disengaged. So that is what you need to look at. the clutch or clutch pedal linkage/ hydraulic system. One of these is not letting the transmission slow down enough to engage a gear.

im assuming this is a manual transmission, if so you need to replace the clutch assembly. the clutch disk has worn too thin for the pressure plate to hold at higher rpms and soon wont hold at all.

Depending how many miles are on the vehicle, the clutch plate may need to be replaced. Do you hear any strange "grinding" noises when engaging or disengaging the clutch? I'm assuming you have checked the hydraulic fluid in the reservoir and it is full. You may also want to change the fluid as hydraulic fluid deteriorates over time and it may not be completely disengaging the clutch. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Shift fork may also be one of the reason! watch the shift fork while moving the clutch in and out.
1)The shift fork is near the clutch master cylinder on the tranmission housing. you should now move the fork left and right while the clutch is moved in and out. 2)From your query, it sounds to me that your clutch is not engaging and disengaging completely. 3) This is due to the air block. Make a bleeding process to blow the air out! 4)A broken shift fork will also prohibit the clutch from engaging/disengaging.

Nissan clutch problem


If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.

5speed ford ranger problem is shifting


Sounds like your clutch is not releasing enough to allow you to engage or disengage. It is dragging which causes hard engagement and disengagement. Possible causes are, Low fluid in the master cylinder to the clutch, or bad slave cylinder down by the bell housing, or badly worn pressure plate, or air in the line leading to the slave cylinder. You will need to eliminate these items one by one by testing to find the bad item in the system. Good luck
