Mechanics

OUR 4 DOOR 4X4 (OUR ONLY CAR) HAS NO GEARS, WON'T DRIVE FORWARD OR BACKWARD WITH OR WITHOUT MY FOOT ON THE ACCELERATOR, HAS A HORRIBLE LOUD GRINDING NOISE WHEN IDLE. COULD THIS INDICATE THAT THE TRANSMISSION WENT OUT?

2001 GMC Jimmy • 180,000 miles

My wife and I bought this car about 2 years ago. When we bought it, it had a rebuilt engine and all worn parts were replaced. This is our only car. We live in a town that has no public transportation including taxi cabs and is more than 5 miles to the nearest stores, etc. I'm 100% permanently disabled. My wife and I almost have to put my social security retirement income under a microscope to find it. We financially cannot afford to pay $130 to have our car towed 7 miles to the nearest mechanic.

Do you have a check engine light?
