Was on a 2 hour road trip, after about 1hour 15min experienced a loss of power that is best discribed as a pull. durring driving had faster/increased speed at wich the car slowed when letting foot of gas, again almost felt like a pull. when ariving on next town had to slow down and brake at merge lane, it was at this time that the car squeeled to a halt and I heard a verry loud clunck,crunch,bang. After this noise car was still running, still can turn off and then restart, but does NOT move. Checked the Trans cable it is working, brakes not locked, can not move in nutral, and had to have towed home.
Do you think this is my transmission? or my transaxil? or somthing entirely different!

Re: 89 tercel auto trans / inmovable
Difficult to speculate without seeing it in person, but, check the differential fluid level. The way you are describing this problem seems to me that the diff section locked up & failed. If so, you need a transmission. Please understand that I am in no way saying go out buy a new trans, but I have observed this previously. Best way to check: Get under it, remove the diff plug & drain the oil into a big pan. If metal particles come out with the oil, then, my original hypothesis is correct.
No oil comes out? You def need a trans, then.
Oil clean? Check the drive axles.
Please check the fluid & repost what you see....
Thanks. Hope this helps.

The best and best approach to warm up an car on a cool winter morning is to introduce an electric motor radiator together with an inside warmer. I have this introduced in my auto and it's truly a gift to jump in a pre-warmed auto not scraping the ice and snow on the windshield, windows and back window each morning. I should do nothing more than module the radiator in a divider contact with a clock (30 minutes to 1 hour will do) and voila - the auto is prepared for use! I'm appending the connection of the 2 driving organizations who fabricate and offer this hardware. I exceptionally recommend these items. It won't just give you warm solace, yet it likewise fulfills the motor by minimizing motor wear because of various cool begins, and also sparing nature.

I believe that what you are experiencing is whats called FAILSAFE MODE, which means its stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear due to recent change in driving habits.... maybe you got on the accelerator a little too rapidly or sharp corner too fast.... All, Nissan's, Toyo's, and most cars have this mode wich is meant to prevent further damage to the trans. This may not be what your experiencing but it sounds like the symptoms, sluggish, slow acceleration,....... have you experiencs and shifting issues, is it an auto or manual trans? if you have a trans power or over drive button and or light on dash or shifter for automatic, observe when you start it up next time and you may find it blinks 8-10-12 times.... if so you have damaged the trans due to mismatched/mixed tire sizes and or tread depth, and brans or tread styles.... yes it doesn't just ruin 4x4 auto trans,.... it kills any transmission after unknowingly driving around with incorrect tires. I work for Nissan and have for 26 years and i have seen chain tire dealers like Walmart, Sears Roebuck, Midas, Tire Wharehouse, Pepboys, and dozens of others cause the transmission planetary-gear failure; in mostly automatic 4x4 or AWD vehicles when replacing just one two or three tires AND NOT THE COMPLETE SET AS REQUIRED BY EVERY AWD AND 4X4 AUTO MANUFACTURER. DON'T BE A VICTIM... BE A WISE CONSUMER.... AND GET AN ATTORNEY IF YOU BECAME ONE ALREADY.... THANKS AND GOODLUCK TransNissPro
if the electric draw with lights etc plus the super stereo **** these blokes use all tallies up to more than the alternator output, you will have exactly the senario you have discribed. but an auto-electrcian can measure these in quick time and tell you for sure
i know the camp verde hill of which you speak , last vehicle in the shop with that same scenario , after doing everything possible including a catalyst check , as we could not duplicate the problem , we replaced fuel pump at owners request and next trip he confirmed it was a fix .
