2013 Mazda 6 speed manual transmission failure 36,000 miles

Asked by Aug 25, 2015 at 01:17 PM about the Mazda MAZDASPEED6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

drove through low water. Immediately after car goes into all gears but trans will not
engage. All gears like in neutral. No prior indication of clutch problems. No grinding, hard
shifting or any other problems. Mechanic says clutch needs replacing: $1200.

Doesn't sound right. A sensor issue makes more sense. Never had a car where clutch
just stops working. Plus, I should be able to get it into a gear, even without a clutch. Or
start in gear and get some movement. I push in clutch, put it in gear and seems like it's in
neutral.

Thank you. I was trying to determine if there is possible mechanical reason that a bad clutch would allow me to shift smoothly into all gears with no grinding, but the car doesn't move.
