What could be wrong with my volvo?
Car was working perfectly fine when I pulled out of my driveway. Reached a
light, once it turned green..tried to accelerate and the car literally clunked out
on me. Would not even want to drive. Can't put in reverse. Every time I'd rev
the car, makes a "ripping" noise.
Ripping noise? Might be trans failure.
Tom -- i'm getting 3-6g as an estimate for the transmission on a volvo..
$3-4K is what I would expect with a warranty. But did you get a diagnosis that the trans is the issue? I am only guessing based on the limited info I have.
Haven't had anyone look yet. Car was towed back to my home. So far, just explained to mechanics, and their as well saying transmission. Trying to find someone to come to my home and take a look before I pay loads to transfers to a shop to fix..
