ok suddenly my car (04 9-3 linear) will start (so clutch engages correct) but will not go into gear? Any ideas? I mean I've had t go to the floor to shift or start since I've had it(about a year)… is there an app or separate site that has the diagnostic tool I hear people speak of or is it just an OBII scanner? If u answer any visual aide would be appreciated or tell me where to look under there...I need Obi-Saab-Kenobi'shelp!!

clutch is severely worn out, or master or slave cylinder is toast.

i would start at the master clyinder, if not.. then u need to deop the transmission to do both a clutch and a slave cylinder

clutch is mechanical and hydraulic,if you can engage the gears when the engine ISN'T running,and CAN'T when it is,then there is an issue with the clutch itself,master or slave cylinder..

It sounds like you might need a new spring for your clutch pedal.
