slammed down to the floor, then it wouldnt start without putting it into a gear
and even then the clutch wasnt working. its not grabbing to switch gears. just

Most likely has a bad Clutch Master Cylinder or Clutch Slave Cylinder leaking fluid. Check the small clutch fluid reservoir beside the Main Brake master cylinder and see if its out of fluid... Might even need BOTH pieces replaced and then re-bleed the clutch system.
