Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

1997 chevy cavelier wont move.

Heard a thumping noise from underneath the car. Suddenly the car would not go into reverse. It did lurch forward when put into drive. Then it would not move at all. Even in neutral it would not budge. Wht could cause this to happen?

Also there is another option and the simplest and easiest to fix check the transmission linkage located underneath the car below the shifter and next to the transmission (if it has 2) there is a U shaped bracket that holds these in place and sometimes it can come loose it is very simple to fix and can be done in 5-10 minutes after you locate it. hope this is it as it doesnt cost anything to fix.

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit


does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while
