Can't shift into gear
All of a sudden while I was at a stoplight I couuldn't shift into gear. Had to turn the car off and start it in gear to get it off the road; how embarrasing. I can shift into any gear while the engine's not running but once it is, forget about it. Any thoughts on this?

check clutch fluid level in clutch master cyl.
slave cyl/throwout bearing might be cooked. how does clutch feel?

Sounds like the clutch is dragging. Thats why you can get it into gear no problem with the car off, but with the engine running it won't engage.
More than likely a hydraulics issue.

There is hydraulic hose that goes into the bellhousing on
the drivers side. hose may be broke or not seated.
or seal may be bad. If good then the slave cylinder as got a leak
and needs to be replaced. that means trans and bellhousing
have to be removed for repair, and i would with no ??? replace clutch
at that time.

Had the transmission dropped and they found a spring that had somehow managed to fall out from the plate and end up in one the splines. So now I got a new clutch, flywheel and had them replace the slave cylinder while they were in there.
