Van was running just fine, but after I shut engine off and restarted a few minutes later and put into drive, I could hear a whining sound coming from the front of vehicle, I then put car into park, and then when I put into drive, it would not move until the rpms got up to 17-19. It continued to make whining noise, and would NOT shift into 2nd or 3rd gears, and seemed like it was slipping out of the gear it would go into. It would move the van about 4 feet (in Drive) and then sound as if it were slipping out of gear and into neutral. This went on until I eventually did limp it on home! HELP! Do you think it's one of the front axles? I did have the half shaft on the right side replaced about 50K miles ago. Also, noticed a loud whining sound yesterday when I was backing out of a parking spot-only once and when I was in reverse. When I put it into drive, it was fine until today. Advice? Thanks so much!
have the same problem?
