Why did I hear a thud and then only able to go 5mph
Last night driving I was at a stop light
and when I went to drive there was
kind of a jerk, so I go two blocks to
the next light and stop and when I try
to go to turn into a parking lot and
there was a thud like noise and my
car wouldn't go faster then 5mph
and all of my gear lights came on. So
I park and turn the car off restart it
and it won't go any faster and then
all of a sudden there's fluid leaking
underneath and the check engine
light came on! What is going on? It's
had all maintenance done regularly.
Any help would be so appreciated! I
don't even know where to start.
The first thing you need to do is figure out where the fluid is leaking from. Find that, and I'm sure you'll know what component failed. I would start checking around your transmission.
