What is wrong when the clutch won't go into gear?

A clutch does not go into gear. A clutch engages, Normally if a clutch fails to engage it is because it is worn. with a worn out clutch you are able to start the car in gear without your foot on the clutch and the car wont move. Normally before this happens you will notice what is known as a slipping clutch. A slipping clutch means that the engine is turning faster than it should to keep the car moving while in gear. once this starts to happen it does not take long for the whole show to come to a stand still.

Will a faulty slave cylinder cause a clutch to slip?

A faulty slave cylinder will not cause your clutch to slip. The slave cylinder is made up of a housing and a rod. The rod pushes the throwout lever against the throwout bearing, that push the teeth on the clutch housing causing the clutch to disengage and you are allowed to shift the gears. When a slave cylinder fails it makes it difficult for you to shift gears. When it completely fails you will not be able to change gears at all for the most part. I sincerely hope this helps you. The only exception would be if the slave cylinder managed to leak fluid onto the clutch disc.
