Well, just got word from the garage. Apparently the clutch pressure
plate collapsed, and that was inhibiting the ability to change between
gears. I'm kind of stunned that the last pressure plate only lasted 24K
miles (and was replaced with standard clutch parts), but what do you
do, it's outside warranty.
I guess the good news is that the tranny was fine, so they say.
