Ok, I was leaving work today, sitting at a onramp light when it went green. I gave it some gas (about half throttle) and it started to go. Made it about 20ft then reved up out of gear.
I pulled over and turned it off and back on...tried different gears...etc... Nothing worked. If I put it in gear and hit the gas the engine reved fine and the speedo moved accordingly. It holds the speed once there and slowly trickles it away. If I put it back in park (car is still sitting motionless) you hear (and see in the speedo) the engine dropping back to idle speed rapidly (about 3 seconds from 30 - 0) and grinding something while doing it.
So I'm waiting for my aunt to get there now. Got the AC going (a little warm out) and all the sudden the car just dies... electrical and all. So I go to restart it and nothin. Just a few clicks like it has a low batt and some weird faint flashing in the dash. Turned it back to ACC mode and then power came on fine. I then tried to start it again and it did on something like the second or third try. I just ended up turning everything off and waiting for a ride. Tow truck came and took it to the shop (should be there by now being looked at) and I got a ride home. I should hopefully get a call in the next couple hours on the problem.
So my guess is the differential since I got speedo and absolutely no gears in any dirrection. What do you all think?
BTW: THIS REALLY SUCKS!!!
