Question about 1999 Saturn SL
Shifter cables broke and i had to drive the car home in 5th gear, my tranny started smoking and my clutch pressure dropped. i let the car cool down and started it back up, i gained pressure back in my clutch but it wont disengage, i can start the car in gear and let go of the clutch and my car doesnt move, the tires dont spin and while the care is in gear i can push it forward and reverse with no hassle, it has a burning smell to it when on. So i was wondering if i burned my clutch out or if the hydraulic clutchs master cylinder has gone bad, the clutch will not disengage and i can shift gears while the car is on without the car moving or jerking without holding the clutch down/ I need help!!! please!!
That burnt smell is what used to be your clutch disk, and you will need to replace the clutch before you will be able to drive that vehicle again. You should purchase a complete clutch kit for your vehicle, and it should come with a new pressure plate, clutch disk, throw-out/release bearing, a pilot bearing, and a clutch disk alignment tool, and be sure that the pilot bearing is replaced when that new clutch is installed.

i think this will work, with the clutch perminantly engaged it is difficult to disengage gears, fixing the clutch should make gear chaging better.
