stuck in snow and going back and forth in snow. Wheels turning. then suddenly wheels stopped turning. moving stick shift from reverse through 1st gear does nothing. what could be problem?
Broken front axle or transmission trashed.
I really do not believe the transmission is trashed. no signs that it was going bad. if linkage is not broke is there a part in the trans that can be broke that that does not necessarily mean trans is "trashed."
It will mean a complete tear down to find all the damage.Which means it would be cheaper to buy a used transmission. So yes trashed.
Have you looked at the front axles?
yes, i checked axles they look good
Jack it up in the front and roll each wheel and see if either one binds or makes a crunching noise. It may have broken an axle but not the boot.
