I NEVER make these kinds of posts but because i am stuck in Ocean city, MD with transmission problems this is an emergency. I only have the condo booked til thursday, help!
This is what happened to the best of my ability... Was driving in traffic when the clutch pedal suddenly dropped momentarily, the car started making a loud grinding banging noise and the car started to move violently, i hit the brakes and shut off the car asap. At this point my clutch still had pressure to it, so i started the car and attempted to shift into first. No dice, the car would not engage any gears even with some force applied. I shut off the car again, now the clutch was letting me engage gear with the car off, so i started the car and again it wouldnt let me put it into gear. So with the car off i put it in first, started it up and attempted to drive... It made the same loud noises except this time the pedal dropped to the floor and i lost pedal pressure all together.
As the car sits the pedal has very light pressure, and still engages the clutch letting me put it into gear with the car off, but with the car on it prevent me from engaging the clutch. With the car on and the clutch pedal engaged everything sounds fine, but when the pedal is not engaged
it makes an odd grinding sound, which i have taken a video of with my phone.
Like i said i never make these kinds of posts, but this is threat level midnight for me, i have 3 1/2 days left on this condo, no tools, and $300 in my pocket (after factoring gas to get home) to get this car back on the road. Any help is greatly appreciated, and desperately needed.
