5sp 98 Escort will not shift Sign In

I have a manual 98 Escort that suddenly stopped shifting on me. It was driving normally then all of a sudden it became extremely hard to shift, and after about a minute I could not get the car into any gear. It will not go into gear when on or off. While coasting to a stop in neutral the car started to engine break and would not move any further. The clutch is not very old and has a lot of life left in it. The clutch and break pressures are fine, there is no leaking anywhere. Can anyone give me some ideas?

Sounds like internal transmission. Better check and make sure they didn't leave the trans low on oil when they did the clutch.

I bought the car a year and a half ago from a mechanic who said the clutch was "newer". I've never had any problems with the clutch or transmission before now.

OK, don't check it then
