Question about 1996 Ford Contour
The clutch was working fine until the previous owner put it in a ditch in the snow. Now the car won't move at all!
Some clutches have a small rod that actually pushes the clutch activation lever on the side of the bell housing. If this rod is out of adjustment, maybe bent or broken, it will not disengage the clutch. In that case, you would not be able to put it in gear. If it has something between it and the lever that keeps it pushed in too far, the clutch cannot engage and move the car. You might want to check the other end of that rod and see if it has been displaced. Have somebody push the clutch pedal while looking under the driver's side of the car to see what moves, so you can tell what to check and correct.
