It wont go in to gear but the car will rock forward. Maybe the clutch is not engaging all the way and not letting the shifter go into gear?
Strange, its still very simular.. mine is kinda the same as to moving forward, it wont while its in gear, but if its one of those times it wont go in, as im pushing it to enter the gate I feel it creep forward the slightest bit. Not much though. If your curious on the drag, you could get the front end up on jack stands, and start it in 1st and see if the tires spin, if they do while in 1st with the clutch fully depressed then its dragging. If it is dragging and your car savvy, first thing to do is, get a big syringe ( I got one from a local hardware store for mixing 2-cycle gas and some clear tube,pull the dust nipple off the slave, slide a 11mm box wrench onto the slave nipple and connect the tubing, fill the syringe with dot 3-4 ( if your fluid in the resovior is clean, use it from that, otherwise take a full syringe out but not enough to empty it and discard it and use fresh fluid, you want some taken out of the resovior so you dont overfill it) make sure you dont take out too much so its under the min line or you could let more air in . Open the bleeder screw and let it fill up the tube to the top(watch it while it fills and see if any air comes out), close the slave bleed nipple, connect the syringe open the bleeder again and squeeze the fluid back up into the slave, watch the resovior as you do it to see if any air bubbles come up.if there is air keep doing this until there is none, cycling fluid out from the resovior by either using for the syringe to reuse, or discarding it and using the same amount of new fluid. Hope this is understandable for you. If this is to difficult, if you have access to a pressure bleeder, that works best. The syringe way is just a cheap slower process but virtually the same. Your not losing and clutch fluid are you? Is the resovior full?
Edit: I see you say it wont go into gear, but moves as it sits against the gate. Mine is the same. Someone told me it could be the dog collars in the trans in my situation, but mines like that in every gear and I doubt there all bad and mines not as bad as you though, it will go into any gear the second try, and always goes in if I hold it against the gear for a few seconds.
