No keep in mind i cannot test drive your vehicle but here are some possibilitys and i dont know if this just happend all of a sudden either. well it is commen for the Axel shafts to break on front wheel drives over a few years and yes this will cause a cluncking noise and will not let the vehicle move. and if it has had shifting problems prior it could be the Trany itself. but i am willing to bet that the CV shaft has broke on you
hope this helps you out
please leave a Rating for me
Thank you

Won't shift properly


Sorry to say, but the mini vans have always been plagued with poor transmissions. Unless you know anything about transmissions you will need to take it to a transmission shop somewhere for diagnosis.

You may have a loose shift linkage in the steering column. Remove the upper and lower plastic covers behind the steerong wheel (5 or 6 philips head) and see if you have any loose torx head or allen head screws. Ea
