Aprelude93 is on a distinguished road
really advice/input/opinions

So, i was driving my 1993 prelude 2.2 single cam 5 speed. I stopped at a red light, put it in neutral and when it turned green, i went to put it in gear and it felt like it was super hard to put in gear, and even in neutral it kept moving forward like it was still in gear. I've checked the shift linkage, etc. I let the car sit, and was able to drive it again for about 2 days before it happened out of no where again. I put the car up on jack stands today, took the tires off and gave the car gas. Both rotors where spinning, but i noticed in 1st gear the speedo never went up in speed, but 2-5th it did. I could also stop the axles from moving just by putting my foot on them and even if i was giving it gas, they wouldnt move. I checked the tranny fluid, was pretty low. I drained what was in there, and added it to full, kept it on the jackstands, gave it gas again etc.. Now, i put the tires back on, droped it from the jackstands, and the car is driving fine now. Reverse is working, drives forward, shifts ETC. As i did say before, the car did work again for about 2 days after this problem happened the first time, so i dont want it to happen again in 2 days and be stuck somewhere, so im wondering if the low tranny fluid would cause this ? just a quick review

-car felt like it was always in gear, wanted to roll forward
-if i forced the car into reverse, it would go in reverse
-if i put the car in 1st gear, it felt like i was fighting for it to move, then if i floored it and droped the clutch the tires would churp and it would want to move

any input would be greatly appreciated. thank you
