11 views and no responses.. we need more info. Is this a manual or automatic? Have you had any issues coming up to this? Fluid level? Harder than normal shifting, clunking? noises? I'm shooting from the hip.. don't pick something and run a marathon with it. Just provide as much info as you can think.


its manual transmission before it start doing this the back wheels were sticking and unsticking while driving it felt like they were trying to move and cant and when they did it made a loud banging sound this happened 3 days prior to it stopped movin

Okay so.. this is advanced. My wish for you is that it is something not as bad as it sounds.. It could be center differential, final drive gear failure? vicious coupling, or something electrical inside the trans.. You need to go to any/all of the following forums and ask for expert advice: NASIOC is a good one, and no specific order on these:,, Also, feel free to copy and paste everything here to the starter thread you'll need to make on a forum. Let me know here what you find out. Kind regards,
