Today while on the road I pressed my clutch in put my vehicle in 1st when i released my clutch I heard a flapping sound ( kinda like when you put your finger in a household fan) the car didnt move it seemed like it was still in nutral..Can anyone give me an idea what the problem is.. ie clutch cable pressure plate...?? i dont want to spend money on a part that doesnt need replacing..Thanks in advance

I'd guess there's something amiss in bellhousing.

First, have an assistant (engine OFF) press clutch pedal while you watch the fork move-
Second, pull back rubber grommet and see if you can see anything
3rd, remove the various brackets and see if there's anything visible behind clutch inspection cover.
Flexplate to clutch (flywheel) bolts can and will come loose, but I'm sure you would've noticed noise long ago.
