It's back at the shop getting the clutch "addressed".
Perhaps your engine is torquing (moving / twisting_) and your shifter is not properly aligned to complete the move.

I suggest different engine mounts and the Powerhouse rear brace with them there torque arms that connect to the belohousing area..

OR maybe you have the clutch with TOO many pucks on it... (SAme part number but WRONG)

just a thought, and a way for you to spend more money!!!
