Why won't my Deville move after the belt broke?

Asked by Oct 10, 2014 at 12:05 PM about the 1996 Cadillac DeVille

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The AC compressor went out on my 1996 Caddy Deville.  When we went to the parts
store to get a new one the serpentine belt broke.  Living only a mile away we decided to
pull the car home ourselves but it would not move,  Anyone know why?

It would not be a good idea to pull it that far with an automatic trans, these trannys need the oil feed provided by the engine running. If you are dead set in pulling it home make sure it is in neutral, brakes released, and keep the speed under 35mph and hope you don't fry the tranny.
