Sorry to inform you, this is caused by a seized pump in your transmission. The transmission will need to be removed and at a minimum have the torque converter and pump replaced.

Low transmission fluid. This tends to kill them after so long. Yours is checked from the bottom.

When I push In the clutch, I hear a rumbling noise under the hood. It still goes into gear. It just happened pulling into my garage. My mechanic is off for Fourth of July weekend and I fear driving it will...


rumbling can mean a whole bunch of things,, my guess would be that your hearing a throw out bearing going out , thats the part that allows the clutch plate and disc to come together to let the car engage, if it goes out completely ,, the clutch could be in gear and not able to release,

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy that has around 93,000 miles on it. The last oil change was 2 weeks ago. Today, on a trip on the interstate, I pulled off to have dinner. When I left the restaurant and started...


If the trucks engine rev'd up when you first put the gas pedal down, but didn't go anywhere then it was probably in neutral (not drive as you thought). If it was in drive and still didn't go anywhere but engine still rev'd up then its a transmission issue or PRNDL switch at the side of the tranny. I can't see anything relating to the gas pedal by NOT reving up the engine when it was pressed down. I wouldn't suspect a throttle cable issue. Check the tranny fluid while truck is running in park, see if the fluid is badly burnt or low on the dipstick. If it looks good I would have the PRNDL switch checked. (Park Reverse Neutral Drive and Low) switch.

Rear wheels on 2000 super duty f250 skid in reverse only


I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1993 BMW 325i? I can't find a place to add it anywhere... do I have to get under the car?


The Dipstick is located just under the Mass Air Sensor. You'll have easier access by taking out the air box.

Rattling under car -- especially when steerling wheell is turned both ways while parked, in reverse or forward or netural . bmw 230 series


while driving at higher speeds you may not notice a sound as much as when you are drivng in reverse as you usually drive slower in reverse. This leads me to think that the rattling can be caused by a loose protective plate under the car. When a load is put on the engine, it tends to vibrate more this vibration can cause a lose plate to rattle more. This is the cheap answer. That is if you are definitely sure the sound is coming from under the vehicle. Otherwise, you may have a crank shaft problem or a seal in the bottom half of the motor could be bad. You may want to crawl under the car and try to shake some of those plates underneath. If none of them are loose take the car to BMW it shouldn't cast anything for them to look at it unless they have to hook it up to the computer.
Please remember that if you intend to climb crawl under your car, you must make sure that your car is properly supported to prevent serious injury. Also, if your driving with a loose plate, it could easily fly off while driving or if you hit a bump. This could cause serious damage to your vehicle. Also, please check you oil levels and make sure you do not have an oil pressure light coming on when you hear this noise.
