Unhappy Car in gear but won't move

My pt is a 2001 5speed limited, my cars clutch feels fine the car will go into gear but it won't move and it won't stall out. When the car is in gear and you let off the clutch the car won't turn off or stall out it does nothing. I have been told my clutch it out but the clutch feels okay and the car goes into gear. Plz let me know what you think it is.

Thank you

Nate's 2001 pt

I think this member suggested what may be wrong, did you check it??

The shifter linkage might be broken so you can move the shifter into the gear position, but the linkage isn't actually putting the tranny in that gear and it's stuck in neutral.l

I am having the same problem. The linkage is hooked up and is moving the trans when I shift, I'm guessing clutch even though the pedal feels fine.
