Axle ripped out of joint

Asked by Apr 22, 2016 at 03:50 PM about the 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS 2.0

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I hit a pothole recently and it broke my strut when
that happened the tire fell and pulled the axle out
of the transmission. When that happened there
was some grinding noises I could feel the vibration
from the shifter. The trans is an automatic. It
wants to roll in park too. Bad trans? Someone
please explain this.

Sounds like you explained it enough. Only way to know the trans is toast is to have it check out by a local trans shop. It certainly doesn't sound good if it coasts in park. Very hard for us to access/ guess the damage over this forum. Sorry to hear your misfortune. You can check with your insurance company for coverage if the costs get too high. You would need to pay your deductible.

The car wasn't insured so I couldn't do anything about it. There's nobody around my area that knows 1g dsm transmissions

It happened on a hill when I put it in park it stayed but when I went to try to push it and it didn't work I put it back in park but it started to roll.
