1995 Pontiac Sunfire manual transmission will not shift?

I have a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire with a manual transmission. I can not get the car to go into any gears.

The shifter will move into all gears even without pressing the clutch?

I then press the clutch in and it will shift into the gears but it just won't move?

Since you're able to move the shifter into all gears while the car is running then it sounds like the the clutch slave cylinder is stuck in position where it release the clutch to shift gears.

Sounds like a slave cylinder problem to me.

The part is around $80.00 but the labor to get the transmission out to get to the slave cylinder would be more.
