wont go into gear when the car is running

i just got the following installed by turbotrix
-jdm trnasmission and t-case
-act 2600
-act flywheel
-oem clutch fork and ball
-all the belts
-oem water pump

i drove it home (5 miles) no problems
left it in my driveway for about a week
then i wanted to take it for a spin
but it wouldnt let me put it in gear
if i pushed the shifter hard enough it started to grind
so i shut off the engine and tried to go thru the gears (1-5)
and it lets me but when i turn on the car it wont

what could it be???
there are no leaks anywhere

also when i drove it home and changed gears
sometimes the rpms will drop to 0 and the car would shut off
i was thinking is because of the flywheel but idk

Re: wont go into gear when the car is running

Clutch hydraulics - either a leak, an air bubble, or you need to adjust your master cylinder rod to increase pedal throw (adjusting the rod towards the firewall).

ACT uses chrome moly for their flywheels. Not quite as light as the aluminum ones. Your having an issue with clutch engagement. There could be a number of things causing this to occur,however twicks just gave you one possibility.

That could be anything. IAC,TPS,ZTS. I would go through the basics first. Check fuel,spark,and all sensors and devices that controll the engine.
Also,try checking the coils. Do you have a Fluke/volt meter?

Re: wont go into gear when the car is running

I'm having the same problem with my car. Jack's "Premium", with Competition 6-puck. Most likely a dead disk. We'll see.
