    Help car won't move forward or reverse

    Sorry If this does not go here was not sure.

    It happen after I drove home from work and left it park in my garage for only a few hours, before I had to go back to work and this all happen just in a few hours. It was raining really hard not sure if his would do anything to the car.

    It start up fine like nothing is wrong with it and no light comes on the dashboard. When I hold the clutch down and shift to any of the gear it does make the click sound that is grabbing the gear but for some reason it does not go forward or reverse. It seem to be water coming out of the exhaust with white smoke, even when it is warm up. I try to push car out of the garage with a buddy to move the car, and it didn't move one bit like the ebrake was on, which is not. I search to see what some people say about this but wanted to make sure if it was right or not.

    Could it be that my

    -transmission is broken
    -need transmission fluid
    -shifter linkage may have broken loose
    -axle broken
    -need new clutch and TOB

    I only had the car for about 2 weeks and this just happen yestoday.

    Just throwing this out there, but could it be your e-brake stuck to the drum (from all the rain).

    Whether you have a blown head gasket or not is not IMO related to why your car does not move. Water coming out of the exhaust, BTW, does not indicate a blow head gasket usually. It usually indicates a low dew point in the environment.

    Its a 06STi? Check your ebrake. It's not a blown head gasket as SD_GR pointed out. If its not the ebrake, it could be a number of things with the transmission. How many miles are on the car? Were all the fluids checked when you bought it? Like clutch fluid perhaps?

    Even if the e-brake was engaged the car would still lunge a little.

    Could be your blinker fluid though

    White smoke from the exhaust is fine as long as it goes away once the car warms up.

    ^ This. Unless it's super thick white smoke that smells of oil.
