Tranny problems

I have a 97 5 speed manual with tranny problems. Today when I was driving down the interstate the transmission started making a high pitch metal squeal when I tried shifting. When I stopped, it had difficulty going into first gear. Sounded like I was turning a bearing. Now it wont go into any gear unless you force it. Any ideas where to start?

Put the truck into first gear, press in the clutch and start the truck... Does it feel like the motor is getting a slight load or does it seem like the truck wants to roll slightly? Might be a throw out bearing not disengaging all the way.

The only way I can get it into first is forcing it. Once in gear it squeals loud. You can release the clutch and it engages.

Thanks RollinEarly,

Guess I really didn't completely answer your question.

Once I get the tranny in first, start it up, I can get a load on the engine after I release the clutch. Short pedal though. I got metal on metal somewhere in there.

Could it be the pressure plate was worn down to the rivets and finally gave in causing the throw out bearing to crap out?
I've got 190K miles on this truck, original transmission.

If the throwout bearing and/or clutch is worn down to rivets, you should see some evidence of metal particles on the inspection cover or inside bellhousing. Cheers!

Just pulled the cover and found ten metal balls from a bearing. Guess that a good indication my pilot bearing needs replaced.

Guess I'll start pulling the tranny out tonight.
Thanks to all who posted.

Wish me luck.

It's still not clear what's happening. Get the truck into first gear again, level ground, parking brake off, start the truck and rev it up with the clutch pedal to the floor. Does the truck move?

Is it any easier to shift with the engine off?

Do you have an assistant? If so, bring a tape measure when you go under the truck, and have your assistant work the pedal all the way up and down, and measure the movement of the very tip end of the fork. It should move at least 1/2" to 9/16".
