Does the clutch fell normal??

If you shut the engine off, will it shift into gear??

Not mine. Seller says it will not go into gear with motor off. Fluid is full. No leaks. Was driving and it got harder to shift and than it would not go into any gear. He said pedal feels like nothing. No effort? He said he had shift cables replaced last yr? Not clear on shifter cable parts. I assume it's not a cable issue if it won't go in gear?

My guess is slave cylinder. (clutch feels like nothing) seems to mean no pressure. May also be a large air bubble (from air coming into the slave ) entered the line. First thing I would do is bleed the slave and then the master and see if it gets better. If it does, may mean bad slave. Harder and harder to shift may mean the pressure plate was slowly collapsing.. then it gets put in N by the driver, and can't get back in a gear.

not sure what that means?? When pressing the clutch pedal, does it fell normal, as in a little resistance. OR does the clutch go to the floor with almost no resistance, OR is it very hard and doesn't move at all??

My initial thoughts are clutch.. HOWEVER, It could be a bad master cylinder
