Our 2001 4 door GMC Jimmy 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?
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.
