I lost second gear and my throw out bearing sounds terrible... Now the car won't start... Do you think it's just a clutch problem?

I turn key fuel pump whines and then I try to start and it's just the starter going but no engine engagement... I just drove it and next thing I know I turn it off go shop in mall and try to start it wouldn't go... A guy helped me push start it but I was just thinking I got lucky... Like I said I couldn't shift into second gear but now I'm back to square one any ideas???

Idk whats going on with your throwout bearing and 2nd gear. Do you have the means to get the trans off, or at least get it on a good set of stands? At least look thru the clutch fork access hole with someone else pressing the clutch pedal.

If you think the throw out bearing is problematic, might as well do that too. Or if you live close to a auto parts store, inspect then buy one if need be. I'm an hr from parts stores, so I have to buy stuff ahead of time, lol.

This should cover it pretty well, Shouldn't need shims, just the alignment tool stuck in the pilot bearing.

Look in your Haynes manual. You'll also find the torque specs for the flywheel, clutch, trans to engine, cross member and trans mount.

To clarify, the car stilling still, with the engine off, and you aren't able to shift into 2, 4 or reverse?
