1996 Marcedes wont move
My 1996 Mercedes Will start fine but when I shift
into drive the car will not move when I push the gas
it just acts as if it is in neutral and makes a huge
knocking sound. What could this be?
Is the knocking from the motor or trans or rear end?
It's gonna be the prop shaft. At each end (gearbox and differential) is a rubber ring which over time is prone to disintegration and this is where you're problem will be. It's a common problem and a fairly cheap fix. Much less likely and much more expensive could be a failed differential. The chances of the problem actually being the gearbox itself is unlikely given that you described a knocking /banging, my money is definitely on the prop shaft coupling.
