I just changed my clutch. i took it around the parking lot, driving no more than 5mph, and i heard a POP. That scared me so i stopped. when i went to move the car again. the car would not move at all. I could put it in to first gear, but even when i gave it gas it was just like the car was in neutral. the engine did nothing but rev and the car did not even roll. i check the slave cylinder and that is not the problem. i just dont know enough and i need some help. i dont have the money to take it to a mechanic. does any one have any ideas.

Use moth balls to drive it out. They do not like the smell and I have heard of good success with that. I will probably be doing the same around my house since my wife caught one inside. Hope this helps!
please excuse my ignorance here but never seen this car so iam only guessing but i would say that the automatic clutch adjustment at the top of the clutch pedal arm has broke that is if this type of mechanism was used for this year vehicle ,being a europeon mechanic iam used to certain design traits appearing on cars of different ages regardless of make and about this time period a lot of cars had auto adjust mechanisms fitted to clutches and then around the 97 period they reverted to a manual adjuster till the later models when they reverted to hydraulic systems with the slave cylinder inside the bell housing .This if iam correct is a simple enough job to do but iam afraid it can be bit of a mind teaser if you havent done one before or dont have the right tools so entrust it to local mechanic but dont be surprissed if he says a new clutch as well owing to the force required to push the pedal down as this force required if excessive will only destroy the adjuster again in a short time .
sounds like your clutch has gone out. the same thing happend to me. sorry to say but its not a cheap fix. first get it looked at to double check but im almost positive this is what has happened. this cost me around $1200. but my RSX is a Type-S and is more expensive. if you own the base model you are looking at around 750-1000
