Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager
I was driving my galant down a steep hill and for some reason it started redlinning and wudnt shift. By the time i tried to hit the brakes my trans went out. The car is a 1999 mitsubishi galant with an auto trans. I checked the trans oil and it didnt smell burnt or anything. My rpms still work but car wont go in reverse or forwards and there is trans oil in it and i also hear a whining noise whn i hit the gas. Is my transmition totaly burnd or culd it be something els?
that is what they consider safe mode for those transmissions, they are a very smart electronic transmission it does that so you dont ruin the trans.
It has detected a problem and you must take it to a tech and have the codes pulled, could be as simple as a sensor or solenoid pack

Do yourself a favor & get it scanned at transmission shop, or dealer & fixed as needed,(within reason) . Delaying it could cost lots of money. A rebuilt is about $1500-$2000.

I don't belive the axles are your major problem or concern. Sounds as though the diff bearing is going out, it's a fairly common problem. If your trans is the 604 (common name) a slight whine is normal from the transfer gears on that side you will also hear a racheting type noise from the solenoid block when it chamges gears. Get under vehicle and grad cv axle inboard joint, try to move it up and down, some movement is normal but should not be alot. You didn't mention how trans works?
