If the car won't shift into gear, the smell of rubber is probably the clutch pressure plate slipping on the flywheel instead of engaging it. This indicates the need for a clutch repair. Could be a worn clutch pressure plate and/or a worn throwout bearing/fork. This is a job which can be done by a home mechanic, but if you don't have tools, floor jacks/stands, take the car to a mechanic.

SMELL OF DIESEL IN SIDE CAR


Smelling gases from outside usually means one of your rubbers have failed. Inspect all the rubbers on the firewall and the boot rubbers. May also be coming up from around the gear stick.

My 1997 seabring had a high pitched noise while


From your discription, sounds to me something vital in your transmission has went out. Pull the dip stick and smell the trans. oil if it smells burnt chanses are you need a rebuild or replacement. Even if the oil dosent smell burnt, with that kind of millage and the shuddering when it shifted leads me to that conclusion.

2006 chrysler 300 transmission slips


Low on transmission fluid. The tranny fluid can only be checked by Chrysler, there is no dip stick, because you have to know the motor temp to be able to know where the fluid should register on the dip stick. Crazy!
Its not slipping now, but shifts hard. Has to be looked at by Chrysler again, but its done this since Ive had it, so I didnt realize it was a problem....
