Could like a bad throwout bearing but would most likely pop out of gear. It sounds like the plastic cup that mounts right under your shifter is likely broken.

    If it's an automatic transmission, and you are unable to move the
    shifter, the problem could be caused by the neutral lockout switch or
    the release relay. If the shifter can move into position but the
    transmission won't engage, it could be, 1)low fluid, 2) the hydraulic
    pump, 3) the internal valve body, 4) internal seals, 5) the clutch

    If it's a stick shift and you aren't able to shift into gear
    with the engine running but it shifts when the engine is off, the
    clutch isn't disengaging. If it goes into gear but nothing happens when
    you let out the clutch, the clutch is worn out.

    If manual, check that the clutch master or slave cylinder isn't leaking or has air in it. Have you tried to bleed it?
    Have you checked the cable to see if its damaged/loose?
    Other causes could be Pilot Bearing or Throwout bearing. If it's manual and makes grinding noise when trying to shift, then the syncros are bad. A synchro is what lines the gears up so you can put the car into gear and shift

I changed the clutch on my 2003 hyundai tiburon gt 2.7l 6 speed now when i push the clutch it wont go into gear and if i push the brake it shuts off

Have you checked to clutch fluid? Did you disconnect and hoses or fittings that are part of the clutch system. You may need to bleed the system to get the air out.

2003 Tiburon Gt 6spd won't go into gear

There is a "simple" slave cylinder modification for this car which helps with clutch issues. I performed it on my used 2003 Tiburon GT 6 speed and it helped quit a bit actually. Go to and type "slave cylinder mod" in the search. You should be able to find a DIY there. I highly recommend you do this mod to your 2003-2005 tiburon if you're having clutch problems. Good luck!
