Can you change gears with the car off?
With the car still not running, does the clutch pedal feel normal?

Hi, ummm lets see here when car is off I can switch it into 1st and 2nd gear but not R,3,4,5 and 1st goes a lot farther as if there's another slot there. As for turning the car on I haven't done that yet didn't think it'll make a difference but idk lol

N the clutch feels way better and a bit stiffer but in a good way than before clutch went out that's for sure

Have you crawled under there to see if the linkage is connected and connected correctly?

Not yet but I'll do that when I get home from work but to be honest now that I think about it probably because just the way the stick feels when moving it. It definitely feels a bit off... Any recommendations what to look for exactly?

You're just looking for anything obviously not connected. A simple mistake is putting the shift lever on backwards. I did it.
