Question about Car Audio & Video
Well i think that the slowing down on the transmission is correct under construction and use of a motor vehicle regulations ,free wheeling isnt allowed least of all with auto transmission .I do know that cars from the 50s had a freewheel device fitted but these were discontinued in the 60s because they were deemed dangerous.Too be totally honest i would need to see the vehicle to pass judgement but i would be inclined to give two possible causes without seeing the vehicle and one would be the flex plate on the back of the torque converter and the other would be the front clutch .If the flex plate has gone you would have heard a noise but if the front clutch has gone then you wouldnt hear a lot but just lose drive and reverse because all the engine output goes through the clutch .You would need to remove the gearbox and strip it to find the problem ,so whatever way its an expensive repair .just for a thought can you get scrappage in your country against a new vehicle ?? might be cheaper in the long run because auto repairs here in spain are a complete box from dealer only ever seen one repair shop advertise in malaga and the price?? now you know why in europe its mainly manuals and autos are another whole lot of money on top of the new car price ,along with diesels .Best secondhand cars for holding their prices here are diesel renaults /peugeots voltswagon and not forgetting mercs but it must be a diesel merc ,and manual
