My wife called me today saying that she couldn't get her car to go from fourth gear to third gear that the shifter was "stuck." She finally was able to get the car to go into third gear, but then it wouldn't go to first or second gear at all. She coasted to a stop and at a stop sign was able to get the car to go back into first gear, second, and so forth until she reached her destination. The car has not been grinding any gears and she said the clutch feels normal to her. She went back out about an hr later and said the car would shift gears normally as if nothing was wrong (car was off.)

Do you guys think the clutch is going? I've never owned a T5 based transmission before so I have no idea where to start troubleshooting the issue. Is this a common problem? Car has 58k.

Thanks.

If she got into some high heat traffic the clutch cable may have started to act up.

also, (and this is rare) the tube that the throwout bearing slides on can get galled, and cause temporary shifting problems.
