So like the title states, I took off somewhat aggressively trying to keep someone from rear-ending me. I was on a fairly steep hill so I slipped the clutch more than I normally would...enough that I smelled it as I took off. It was enough that I actually chirped the tires a bit, which I've never done in this car. Long story short, once I came to a stop a few seconds later, I could NOT get the car into any gear, even with the clutch planted to the floor. Tried pumping the pedal repeatedly, tried rolling while applying pressure to the gear...nothing. I finally had to turn the engine off and put the car into gear and re-start the engine. When I did this, the car lurched forward and was fine afterwards. No trouble since... Interestingly, I've also noticed a kind-of "whirring" sound that's new (was doing it BEFORE the issue above) and definitely coming from the clutch/transmission. It only makes the sound when the car has sat all night, and blipping the throttle or engaging the clutch makes the sound go away. Once warmed up, the sound is gone. What's a little disconcerting is it sounds a LOT like a spun bearing. Also interesting, this seems to be directly related to 2nd and 4th grinding a bit if I sit in stop-n-go traffic for an extended period. There's a "good reason" why I don't want to take it to the dealer unless I absolutely have to. 13K miles on the car now. Suggestions?
