Get your front tires off the ground put it in first and then give it gas then push the clutch. If your RPMs jump up in that means your clutch is somewhat working. Let us know after that. It could be as simple as ajusting the rod on the back of your clutch pedal.

^^^^^ dumb **** lets think safety first. 95% of the time when the CMC has fluid and system is bled and it still will not go into gear your clutch is shot. you should be smelling a little bit of it aswell.

Have you dropped a transmission and swapped a clutch before? I have and You can move that rod enough so that you can not get into gear even with stock clutch . Obviously you should check the fluid as well. These cars have a very finicky adjustment I have spent a lot of time with my elbow up around the gas pedal trying to get it perfect.

If you can't get the car into gear when the engine is running the clutch is partially engaged. There are 2 scenarios here, either the master or slave cylinder is failing and not releasing the clutch all the way (cheapest fix) causing it to stay partially engaged.... or the clutch is dragging because it's warped, coming apart, or there's a problem with the pressure plate / release fork.

Hope it's the first scenario. The rest require the trans to come out

Either way, a dragging clutch is not good. do not continue to drive like this or you will put severe stress on your synchros trying to overcome that dragging clutch.

They couldn't find the issue? I hope it only happens intermittently, or else that's a pretty sh*tty dealer.

If it's intermittent it could most likely be the master cylinder
