okay I have a 120 mile commute back and fourth from work. while driving to work yesterday all highway shifting threw all the gear once I hit 5th there was a high pitch noise and rattle sounded like metal grinding. you could hear noise going in and out like something was loose. So on my way home had the top off enjoying the nice warm weather in bumper to bumper traffic after about 15 miles I noticed smell of burning brakes. When I got a chance to turn off onto the shoulder to see if the brakes were hanging up I sat there for about 15 min. to let them cool down to see if that was the problem. I then jumped back out into the flow of traffic shifting threw 1, 2 ,3 ,4, and when I went to go into 5th it wouldn't go so back over to the shoulder I went. Tried to start off again and I couldn't go into any gear had to be towed home. The tow guy thought it was the clutch that I was smelling. The question is if it is the clutch wouldn't it be able to go into gear if the car wasn't running and why would it only make noise in 5th? This hasn't happened in a while but every now and then it use to get stuck in second and with a little savvy it would release. Any input would be grateful.
