I was driving the van the other day and suddenly it began to make a grinding noise. I slowed down, then as I accelerated the noise begacame louder. Suddenly, I was just coasting. Giving it gas did nothing. I turned it off and started it again, nothing. The garage now is saying that my fly wheel is damaged along with a missing bolt from the "bolt pattern" that enables the engine and transmission to operate together. What do you guys think? I'm about at my wits end with this vehicle. I desperately need it to run for about another 18 months but I cannot afford to keep pouring money into it. I just don't have it. If I did, I'd get another vehicle!
Thanks for your previous input as well as any idea you might have for the new junk.
