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.

1998 land rover discovery transmission makes loud banging noise when shifting from pari to drive?


Tons of possibilities here (transmission, differential, motor mounts, transmission mounts....), so I'll ask some debug questions to help narrow it down. Does it make the noise when shifting into reverse? Also, does it make the noise only when shifting from park, or also when shifting from neutral (into drive or into reverse)? Did the noise start as an occasional, softer noise and get worse over time, or did it start suddenly? Does the vehicle lurch at the same time as the noise? What happens when you go from Reverse to Drive, or vice versa? Has any work been done recently (brakes, tires, alignment, suspension, transmission)?
