Mustang Clutch is Acting up (I NEED HELP!!!)

Car: 1988 Ford Mustang Lx 2.3L

First off, recently i have just spent 160 bucks for a new radiator and
I have just received the car back from the shop and have been driving
it for a total of 3 days...Im driving at the speed of like 40-50 mphs
and I start to slow down before a stop sign, and i feel like the gears
locking up needing to be forced into any gear, as I get further I then
feel the gears not being gripped at all, clutch completely in, and it
is just sliding into gear and not gripping into any gears...it seems
that it will now not come out of neutral, none of the gears actually
grip, the clutch arm it self seemed to take all the usual pressure and
give.

I would like any ideas, help or pricings on parts for what it would
take to fix such a problem because I need to get the car running soon
for school and work.

Re: Mustang Clutch is Acting up (I NEED HELP!!!)

Sounds like your clutch plate has collapsed, but you will need a full clutch
installation. Steve.
