Hi all,

So, I have a 2004 (54 plate) Nissan Navara. The truck has been stood on the driveway for around 6 months. It was driven into place and everything worked fine. However, today I decided to get it moved ready for getting it back on the road again. Started it up fine and went to select reverse. It wouldn't go into reverse gear, and upon testing all the other gears, it wouldn't go into any gears. Turned engine off and the gears could be selected, although a little stiff. Upon turning the engine on whilst in gear, the car juddered forward or backward depending on the gear selected. The fluid reservoir is full. Any ideas on what to look at first. Thank you.
the clutch plate has rusted to the flywheel.
a common way is to put it in reverse, keep foot on the clutch, and start it. drive it back and then slam on the brakes. the shock is often enough to break it free.
