my other thread went in the wrong direction while i was at work
i stole my roommates car to get to work today, but that was a one time deal...
let me further discuss the problem
while driving, i lost the transmission power.. the engine still reved just fine. i figured i blew the line and was losing fluid so i killed the motor and pulled over. popped the hood and checked the fluid, its all there. i get back in the van and try to start it. just the starter, not engaging, not turning the motor over.
at this point we pushed it into a parking lot and left it for the night.
after work today i got a truck and towed it home. its now in the garage. and i discussed some possible situation of what happened with my dad. here are the facts:
if the engine is turned over from the front (belt) end, it turns over just fine, and also turns the fly wheel and torqe convertor (there is an access panel to view this)
if the engine is turned over from the front (belt) end, it turns over just fine, but if i hold the flywheel, i can still turn the motor over and it makes a slipping sound
if the engine is turned over from the starter the flywheel and torque convertor spin, but it does not turn the motor over
did i shear the bolts that hold the flywheel to the crank? it doesnt seem like its going to be a huge mechanical problem, but more of a labor issue. is the flywheel turning over when i turn it over by the crank only because of the pressure there? and thats why i am able to hold it even though it appears to be connected.
any help is appreciated... my dad is coming up tomorrow morning to look at it @ 8:30, but is only able to stay until 10:30.. so fixing it does not look good
any MN bc boys up to helping me pull the trans to look if thats whats needed?
