yeah my car has just almost the same problem now or actually once in awhile like that! if its anythin like you cant shift at all and is stuck in N and its really tough and wont let u shift out... then its like mine. ... its the clutch... but now what your saying is that you cant reverse.... theres only one thing i could think of... your tranny! get it checked... and dont drive it anymore until you get it checked out.. b/c i had a buddy whos car did the same, so he thought it was the clutch like mine and in a few days of drivin around town... the engine/tranny blew... so get it checked asap! unless you wanna spent a few thousand to fix it afterwards.... good luck! my advise... get it checked... but email me if your not too certain

When you tried to shift in to gear would it grind at all like you didn't have the clutch disengaged? Was it engine oil that was leaking or transmission fluid? If you do not know smell it, If it smells like ass then its tranny fluid. If its tranny fluid you could of put a hole in the gear box. Has your clutch ever been replaced? My bet is that some thing broke off of your clutch or your flywheel bolt came off and shot through your gear box.
