    What gets stuck? The shifter? the clutch pedal? Please be more specific.

    that could mean the clutch is bad not good. if the clutch isnt fully disengaging then it will not let you go into gear properly. and forcing it into gear will only damage your key ways leading you to a rebuild. How old is the clutch? what brand clutch? how many miles?

    If your Shifter is stuck in any gear.....You have a damaged blocker ring, broken slider key or a damaged shift fork. While the blocker ring and fork are possible problems, 99.9% of the time the slider keys is broken and is what causes all of your problems. You can not fix any of these issues without rebuilding the unit. If you continue to drive it with it damaged, you run the risk of causing gear damage to that specific gear and then will further progress to other gears and the rebuild process is more expensive.
