Default RE: 89 Honda Stuck in gear - manual transmission

With the car off you should still be able to move it in/out of gear. Try pushing in the clutch and shifting with the car off. If it doesn't shift and is stuck in gear then start the car and if the car doesn't jump or jerk and it's still stuck in gear then you know that the clutch and clutch cable are working. Make sure your tranny fluid level is honda MTF and at the proper level, it could be your shift linkage froze too but you'd probably have to crawl under the car to figure that out... At least you can verify that the clutch is fine, if it is it almost sounds like water in one of the shift linkages binding up.... does it always happen or just once in a while? how did she eventually get it to move?
