    sup yall, i had my 91 rex down for a loooong time, and now it wont go into gear.

    I CAN get the tranny into gear with the engine OFF but when i crank it, the car lunges forward as if i had let the clutch out.

    When the engine IS running and the tranny is OUT of gear, i can start the engine and the car idles fine. BUT if i depresss the clutch pedal and atttempt to put the tranny in gear, it just grinds and dosent engage.

    any ideas here??

    The clutch is a strong ACT stage 3 clutch if that means anything.

    help from the swap gods would be mucho appreciated

    your clutch is shot. you will be lucky if your tranny is good to. don't drive on it obviously. you need to pull it out and take it apart. i would try to bleed it first, just to keep it simple. but it's doubtful.

    Fyi

    Just so everyone knows incase anyone else encounters this problem.

    THE CLUTCH IS NOT BAD AND TAKING IT APART IS NOT NECESSARY

    THe problem comes from the clutch being ruted to the flywheel thus causing a direct drive to the wheels all the time with no way to disengage the transmission.

    All you have to do is.

    get a long area that is safe to drive forward in without running into stuff

    set e-brake

    put car in get

    start car and start working the clutch pedal

    the clutch will eventually break loose with a satisfying pop

    then operate as normal.

    its an old hot rodder trick used on muscle cars but it FREAKIN WORKS.

    thanks for the help guys
