My car wont move in drive


Asked by Mar 27, 2016 at 03:50 PM about the 1997 Lexus ES 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I can put my car in drive but it wont move
and it makes a loud clicking noise

1 Answer


A lot of things can make a that kind of sound and none of then are good when it comes to a rig not moving, I am going to go out on a limb here and say most likely the tranny went bye bye, The sound could be most anything from the torque converter splines to internal sun gears grinding up. I do believe that you will wind up replacing or putting in a rebuilt tranny. HTH
