i've got this 88 firebird that i am having trouble with. the car has a 305 tbi with a borg warner 5- speed transmition. we noticed that the clutch and throwout bearing had gone out. so we changed the clutch and the bearing, resurfaced the pressure plate. After we had it all back together we noticed that we had to "force" it into gears. So we had thought that the slave cylinder had gone out. So we replaced that. and we still have the same problem. we pulled the tranny again, the throwout bearing is installed correctly the clutch is perfectly alligned, and the tranny is full with fluid. We noticed that when we shift into first and second you have to be moving to get into it and have to be under 20 mph. we have bleed the slave cylinder numerous times and it still isnt fixed. Please can someone help.
