Default THE DEATH OF THE VAN :(

van died. picking up the guys at the bar and when we are leaving i lost all transmission... reving away... so i pulled over, thinking i blew a tranny line and was losing fluid. i shut off the motor and checked the fluid, all looked good. so i got in and tried to start it again... the starter is not catching the engine, so it just "wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees"... so now i have a bad tranny, and non starting engine within 30 seconds...

think the flywheel could have snapped or came off? it didnt make any loud noises or anything, i just lost the trans

basically, i am screwed... got a taxi home, and i have no way to get to work, no way to get to the xmas party tomorrow, no way to get back home to see my brother in the hospital.

i NEED my bonnie back

Oh SNAP! Hope it'* something simple (doubt it is).

Cold weather + bonnie driving style must've done it in.
