Most likely the shifting fork is worn within the transmission. You did not say what car but most late models have no adjustment. This problem usually shows up in the highest gear. Sorry.

This is typically done for unsynchronized transmissions.

With an unsychronized transmission, you'll have to time your shifts accordingly.

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.

Why will a 1995 Izusu Rodeo with a standard trans not start when you turn the key but if you pump the clutch a few times then it will?

the reason is that there is a switch at the bottom of the spring by the clutch that is a safety switch so you don't start the car up in gear. either the master cylinder is leaking and by pumping it tells the switch that it is not in gear or the switch is bad and youre just hitting it and knocking the bad connections back to their senses, or you have a bad cable that has stretched past it life . try having someone push down on the switch or hit the switch while you try to start it. if the fluid is too low it will not start or the car will start and while you are driving it will lock up and not shift because of low pressure in the master cylinder for the clutch because of a bad master clutch cylinder. there is an adjustment for the spring cable when you push in the clutch. your clutch or cable is at its life end.
