Question about Chevrolet Cavalier
Your throwout bearing went out. For confirmation, get under your vehicle, and look at where the slave cylinder pushed on the arm that goes into the transmission. See if you can move this arm. Normally, you should get little to no travel on it. If you can move it more than about an eighth of an inch, you know that the bearing bit the dust. Other symptoms, is you may have heard a groaning sound when pressing in on the clutch recently, and at this point, most people assume that they will need a new clutch soon. The next symptom is that sound will stop (when the bearing seizes). The next thing that happens is that it wears through the fingers on the pressure plate, wiping out the clutch completely, so it will not disengage. The hydraulic cylinders on chevrolets rarely go out before the clutch itsself does. Hope this helps you out.
