Sounds like the breaks are binding up


tranny's fucked


the breaks where locked up got them lossend and it still did the same thing but the trans has 187k never has been rebuilt but if it is toast, i have a second trans


its your transmissions, get it rebuilt


on craigs list they sell sr20 trannys for around $250-$300 with around 50k-60k on them. Seems cheaper than a rebuild to me.


does the car sound deeper than it did before? could just be a coilpack..


by the way the car has a ka24e sohc


check all your injectors and make sure they are plugged in, and that your maf sensor is working, then go from there.
