Default My acura rsx doesnt move when in gear?

I was driving my car the whole morning and it was fine but until it didnt want to move anymore. I turned it on and put it in gear and only the rpm go high but the car doesnt move. Also it smelled like something had just burnt. Is it my clutch that needs to be replace or what can it be.

Its a stick shift, 04 acura rsx type s.

Also if i do need a new clutch how much would it be to install the clutch. I already know how much the clutch is.

well it would help to know what kind of transmission it was. but either way your going to need to take it to a mechanic, especially if its an automatic.

Sounds like your Transmission is dead if its an automatic and if its standard get it to a mechanic!

But you can start by taking the transmission fluid pan off and check the magnets located on the bottom of the pan! if theres alot of excessive metal possibly even chunks of gears your transmission is shot, done,dead, killed, burned, ruined! Inless its standard where most commonly they can be rebuilt!

I assume it's a stick shift and you burnt up the clutch,, you will need it replaced,, I've done them the engine must be supported from up top and the exhaust subframe must be removed so you are looking at a 7 hour repair bill plus parts.. (clutch, throw out bearing, pressure plate, and resurfacing flywheel) good luck.
