    There is no fluid on the ground.I can't find a dip stick for the transmission. The transmission shifts as it should.Could parking on an incline cause this problem?

    Taking car to dealer for repairs. Will it hurt to drive it 30 miles? I'm rural.

    I've not seen one drop of fluid under the car. Another delima is there is not a dip stick for the transmission under the hood to check fluid. I also have OnStar and it's not showing a problem. You've given me good advice........I think I'll have it towed to dealer to be safe.

Hello:

#1) Did you notice any Transmisson fluid on the Ground?
Check Transmission fluid level.

#2) The Noise you hear is Your Toque Converter or and your Front Pump the Torque converter runs the Front pump Off your Engine and Cars Flywheel that are bolted together.

#3) Inside your Torque Converter is what is called a STATOR its internal on the Coverter,But you also have 2-Other different Size Shafts on your Input Shaft on your Automatic Transmissin.

#4) I'm sure that while on the income they slide off your input shaft.and when driving there not in the Toque Converter all the Way causing your Noise.

#5) The only way to correct it is to pull the Transmission out,And by continuing to drive it this way will only cause more damage and much more Shop Costs. I hope i've saved you a Major Problem.

    Hi, Parking on a Incline should'nt hurt it,But if your Front or Rear Seals are old and Worn Transmission Fluid can leak out, Which ever way you where parked.

    Downhill====Front Seal ===Up-Hill==Rear Seal

    Your Transmission Dip Stick is Under your Hood Back of Engine Close to Fire Wall. It should be Labeled Trans Fluid.Could be a Red Dip Stick Handle.

    Driving it 30 Miles if Low on Fluid YES it could Damage the Cars Transmission .

    I would find dip stick and make sure its Full before Driving that Far. Also If its Showing Low on the Dip Stick You'll need to only add enough to get to the Full Line on Dip Stick. While Cars Running and In Park with Emergency Brake on.Is when you need to check the Fluid Level.

    Please let me know your Outcome If you need more Advice Feel Free to Reply to This.

    Thanks David ===d_hubbs

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Transmission disengaging from motor (I think?)


from what you described, this sounds like the gears in the transmission box are slipping. I'm assuming this car has an automatic transmission. Most automatic transmissions have belts driving the gears in the transmission, so my suspicion is that one or more of the belts could be wearing off and causing this problem. Have the transmission box checked. Was the transmission replaced with a new or rebuilt one?

02 4x4 olds bravada makes loud clanging noise when turning wheel


Have your CV boots and half shafts checked. If these are cracked, they will dry out and cause a lot of noise when turning. Also check your swaybar links, these cause a lot of noise also, but not only while turning.

1999 Cadillac Catera - 103,000 miles - cranks but no fire


Hello carol...from the symptons you describe more than likely it's the CPS (crankshaft position sensor.)
The CPS is a common problem on Cateras with these symptoms.
The sensor is a magnetic impulse type that sends a signal to the computer, the computer then triggers the fire signal. When the CPS gets weak, dirty or has low voltage the intermitten no starts occur. It will finally result in a no start at all...Please be aware that a lot of caddy dealers will and have overcharged customers for this common problem by ill advise and replaceing uneeded componets.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

2003 cts will not start - 101,000 miles


it sounds like your alternator let go, therefore your battery is not charging, you will need to investigate further but the rattling would be explained by the alternator mechanically breaking internally and failing to charge the battery resulting in your present situation
