1997 Ford Escort Automatic
I was using my roommate's car last weekend. When I came out of a stoplight the gas pedal went down, made a terrible noise, but I wasn't moving. The initial press of the pedal was enough to move me across the light and onto the side of the road. Also, on my speedometer it moved the needle up to 60 because when I realized I wasn't moving I pushed a little bit harder. I turned off the ignition and after that I was able to start the engine just fine in park, but when I switched to any gear but neutral I again got a terrible noise and no movement. When I popped the hood, I checked fluids and the transmission fluid and engine oil were basically empty (it's my roommate's car). After going to a circle K, I got the necessary fluids but they didn't really help. I don't know much about cars but I thought it might have something to do with the transmission. Any advice?
have the same problem?
