Transmission problem
2002 Mitsubishi Lancer 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130, 00 miles

While driving to work this morning, my transmision suddenly failed to engage. It would not engage in any gear. Prior to this, I noticed in each gear the engine rev rate was very high (not in the red zone though) as I was accelerating in eahc gear. The car qit engaging at a stop sign and when I exited the car and lifted the hood I could smell something burnt. Ther was not noticable smoke or any other indication of a problem. Is this my whole transmission, clutch or what has happened?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi JERRYHAHIN,

The smell was probably from the trans.

The ATF level must have been low which caused the slipping.

If you are lucky, there might be a leakage with the hoses and the fluid got dry. Fixing the leak and adding ATF might solve the problem.

Otherwise you need to rebuild the trans.
