I was on the highway, in traffic, and I went to pass a stopped vehicle. I accelerated to get around him when all of a sudden the car just died and wouldn't start back up. So, I figured that the timing belt went. I tore down the belts, removed the valve cover gasket, etc. And saw that the timing belt is actually ok. What I also noticed is that with the transmission is in park that I can still spin both wheels. (The front end being jacked up of course) I tried every position: park, drive, reverse, etc. And the wheels can be spun easily regardless. I can't figure out what could be causing this. Could the transmission be blown, crankshaft broken, or the shift levers snapped? Your help would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks!
have the same problem?
