Hi Experts :-)

The car is my 2002 Impreza TS wagon, with the EG25 and 5 speed, the engine and transmission have 220,000 km (136,000 mi). 

My car will not move, the engine will stall as soon as I let out the clutch, I also cannot push it even in neutral. My first thought was that the parking break was stuck but in troubleshooting I jacked up each end one end at a time and both axles are free to move on their own, if I turn one wheel the other rotates in the opposite direction with no real resistance. Just prior to this I was hearing a gear whine, but since I had just swapped the transmission and thought it might be normal, since the original transmission had worn out syncros, I also thought I heard a clunk when I backed it up into the spot it is stuck in now. Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

Have you looked at the shift input shaft while someone is shifting in the car?

Might have disconnected or is stuck against something since you were just in there.

I have not checked the shift input shaft, but since it was in reverse (since I backed into the place that it is now) and I can let the clutch out in neutral that makes me think that it is working. I will see once I get it dragged to a shop (I do work at a trades college so can use a nice shop occasionally).
