Default 93 Camry stuck on 5th gear - Is this a bad Clutch or Tranny or both?

Hi,

I was driving my 93 Camry on the freeway and felt a few tugs, then the gear stuck on 5th. I can no longer shift it (up or down) and smell odor coming from the clutch. The mechanic believes the clutch is gone and something may be broken as well. The car starts but shut off if I release the clutch. It also moves if I push it when the engine is off. Does this sounds like the transmission is bad? What else it could be beside the clutch? Any idea what the problem may and/or suggestion on what I should check on the car?

Thank You

I took a quick look at the car yesterday. The shifter in the car will not move, it's very hard when I tried to pull it down to neutral and seem to stuck in the 5th gear position. I'm afraid to break it if I pull it too hard/many times. I'll check the shifter cables when I have more time. Since I can't even move the shifter in the car, is there a manual release process I can perform to dis-engage it? Any other things I should check before disconnecting the shift cables?

Thank You!

Not sure if there are some available manual for dis-engaging.

I finally got the chance to check the shifter and the cables. I disconnected the 2 cables attached to the transmission and it shift fine in all direction. It looks like the problem is inside the transmission. I'm not handy enough nor have the right gear to remove the transmission to look inside. Is there anything else I can check myself b4 bringing it to a professional? Thanks again to all the help.
