Check to make sure that the shift linkage is adjusted properly. If not, the linkage may not be able to move the gears inside the transmission enough to properly engage. I have a Daytona that has a procedure to lock the transmission in a known position, the shift cables are loosened at the shifter, and two rods are placed in the shifter to lock it in a corresponding known position. Then the cables connecting the two are tightened down, the 'locks' are removed, and everything is good to go. Check to see if the linkage on the transmission or in the gear shifter inside the car is bent. Check to see if something is interfering with the shift linkage. Could be a hose or something in the way. You may have to open the transmission if the remedies above didn't fix it. Something may be bent inside the transmission preventing the gears from engaging properly.

Check (or have someone check) the clutch fluid reservoir. The fluid may be low.

If it's an automatic, it's probably a bad transmission (clutch, valve body or hydraulic pump). If it's a manual transmission it's probably a worn or damaged clutch.

A clutch in an automatic transmission will decrease fuel economy. A clutch in a manual transmission will increase fuel efficiency.

A corroded distributor cap and rotor will cause a vehicle to be difficult if not impossible to start and may cause the motor to run rough. If a manual transmission is jerky the clutch slave cylinder or clutch may need replacing ( clutch slipping ). It would also do to check the clutch lines for leaking fluid.

No, a manual transmission uses a clutch. Torque converters are used on automatic transmissions.

Simple, you put the transmission in D and that is all you have to do. With a Manual you have to engage the clutch and shift through all the gears over and over as you drive.
