:cry: Ok. I just purchased a 1991 Ford Explorer with 174,000 miles on it. New engine has 35,000 miles on it. Just bought it last night, and ran fine during the test drive. Today, I was in a parking lot, and I put it in drive, and it just sat there, wouldn't move forward for approximately 30 seconds. Then it kicked into gear and went. Then when I got home, let it sit for awhile, went back out to leave, car was pointing uphill, it again wouldn't move. Not quite sure if tires were moving, but smoke was coming up from somewhere under the car passenger side rear. It felt as if I were on ice and couldn't get the car to move. Took over a minute of me giving it gas to kick it into gear. I am afraid to drive it now, and have no idea what the deal is. I am assuming tranny, but why would it have ran fine during test drive and start the problem now?
have the same problem?
