my clutch is bieng a punk. i cannot put the car in gear if the engine is running. if i put the car into gear while the engine is off, when i start the car and let off the brake the car will creep forward, much like an automatic car. when i let the clutch out it will move faster, much like engagine the clutch when it was normal. now when I need to switch gears I can but it is very difficult, it feels like i'm pulling the entire engine out of gear to just go from 1st to 2nd.

when I am stoped I can not put the car into gear no matter what gear it is or how hard i push. if i push the stick into lets say 1st really hard, the car will start to move ever so slowley. if i have the car in gear and the clutch in with the brake on so the car will not move forward, there is no humanly possible way to get that stupid thing out of gear.
please help
