At least your not stranded with that one, the sprag clutch may be overrunning the clock spring when turning or doing Smokey burnouts going forward, but first check the sparkplugs for needed cleaning

If it would do burn outs I would but I thought about the spark plugs thanks


have the igniton system checked. the distributor and rotor as well as the ignition control modual and coil. if its weak on take off it may be a sign of a bad rotor or distributor cap or a coil heading on its way out the door.
