Was on my way to work, noticed that the car was starting to struggle going into gear a few days ago. Was almost at work, sitting at a very busy light when my car stopped going into first gear. Basically had to start in second for it to work. I got to work, turned the car off and the car slips just fine into 1st gear when it’s off. Any help?

Start off with adjusting your cmc/clutch pedal

My clutch fluid was low, which to me indicated a leak. I bled the clutch, put new fluid in it, and drove it for a bit. After a few days, all gears stopped working. Clutch fluid did not go down, so my guess of a hydraulic leak is not the case. Maybe a slave cylinder or a master cylinder problem?
