Default Another trans?

Bonnie gave me some lip again. Driving the car one night, pull out of a lot, the car is clicking quite profusely, then drops into neutral. Car doesn't go anywhere and just clicks if I put it in gear, no park lock either. Speedo moves when it clicks though. I did have a bad driver'* side CV joint, but I've never heard of them failing like that... but I am leaning towards diff. No fluid on the ground. Any advice? Neither CV joint can be seen turning.. it'* not reaching to them i don't think. Pretty sure it'* the trans... 190k on a GX3.

That was trans #2. Nope, rad cooler still there. No aux cooler either though. I just bought a town car, doesn't run [of course], but some wiring be all it needs. I need to get that running first, since it takes less financial support. Once that happens I can get under the bonnie and find out for sure. I was just curious on what you guys thought.

Man, anyone want to buy an SSE? 89 of the 1900s... very nice shape, needs a trans. $500. Any takers? Damn good motor.. straight body, DIC works, everything else works in the car, A/C needs recharge, machine error lost my R-12 on motor swap and didn't feel like messing with a 134 retrofit. White, with colour matched wheels, tan interior, 150k body, 190k motor/trans. No exterior rust, rear end thing is a bit rusty, but it'* just surface rust and that'* it. I'll post up some recent pics if any takers.
