Why would be vw diesel not go into reverse sometimes?

Before there can be an answer, need to know transmission type; 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic? If its the manual, its the clutch takeup cable. The shifter should have a button or detent to push in order to move it into Reverse. Its most likely loose. If its the automatic, its most likely the brake sensor that must be engaged prior to shifting from Park. Driver must fully engage the foot brake prior to shifting from Park to Reverse and from Drive to Reverse. Most likely replacement of part will fix issue.

What is wrong if you have a 1994 Probe that wont go into 2ND 4TH or Reverse pushing clutch all the way in but will go into 1ST 3RD and 5TH shifting hard recently?

Most likely, the clutch or the clutch pilot bearing is dragging. This is caused by clutch hydraulic leaks not letting the clutch fully disengage or the clutch pressure plate/disc/flywheel is warped. Crawl under the car, (engine off)have a friend push/release pedal, see if slave cylinder throw seems adequate and look for leaks. If throw is short, problem is in the clutch hydraulics; if throw is normal, problem is the clutch.

Well, you're not going to like this answer, but if you're sure you got the air all bled out and the clutch disengages fully without issue, then the problem is most likely the transmission's shifting fork, you might get lucky and find an issue with the shifting linkage, but if its the tranny fork, bad luck, but better you than me! Yes, they are difficult to change.

My clutch is leaking on 85 Ford Ranger. I have noticed fluid on the drivers side near wheel but not under the trans bell housing. Is the leak more likely the master cylinder vice slave?

I don't mean to insult, but are you sure you are looking at the clutch master cylindar and not the brake? There is no way fluid from the clutch could make it to the rear wheel. The slave cylinder is most likely the problem if it drips near the wheel. Replace it with a rebuilt unit not a kit.

The 1993 Saturn used a self adjusting hydraulic clutch system on the manual transmission vehicles. As such, the clutch never needs adjustment. If you're having trouble with the clutch, it is most likely because of a worn or damaged clutch assembly.
