When it snowed here, I was leaving work at 3pm, It was really deep in the lot where i work, they didnt get it plowed GRR (Uhaul). I was leaving work, And i was stuck pretty bad in the parking lot it was really deep, The bottom of my front bumper was acting as a snow plow LOL, Any way after getting un-stuck, I noticed this weird clicking noise/motion, from the transmission, and I could see the gear shifter kinda pulseating. It would do that while i was driving even if the clutch was disengaged, It would only stop when i was at a complete stop, So I was still in the parking lot and all of a sudden the front end just LOCKS up! I was like WTF? i have the clutch pushed in (disengaged) and the front wheels are locked up, So I leave the clutch out to move alittle, and the car wont go, its as if the Ebrake was on, So i give it alittle gas and let the clutch out, i heard this LOUD metal cracking sound, and then it moves like 1 ft, and did the same thing again, then the 2nd time, I let the clutch out and nothing!!! I notice the speedometer moving, but not the car, I put it in 2nd gear, 3rd gear, I see it go up to 100mph but the wheels are not spinning Hrmm, and i also notice, after i got out of my egt, a nice line of tranny fluid leading to where it locked up, and the a HUGE puddle of fluid from where the car cracked real loud. So i have it towed, and the people at the trans place tell me the tranny is gone!, Its 550 for a used one from a junk yard in York,PA, 380 for labor and well might as well stick a new clutch in it awhile it would be dumb not to. so were looking at like 1200$ to fix my egt
1994 5spd with 84K on it. I think its all cuz of the snow really. well my X-mas is gonna suck!
