Is it toast?
I was driving my '90 100 auto briskly through some nice local twisties
yesterday, and now I think my car is dead.
I rounded a bumpy corner and as I hit the straightaway (at about 45) the tach
jumped to the redline and the car started to slow down...and make the most
god-awful "whooooze kurk kurk kurk kurk kurk" noise from the front driver's
side. I immediately killed the engine and pulled to the side. I put the car
in park and started the engine, hoping everything would be okay. Engine
cranked up as normal. Put car in gear and the car hit the redline, the
speedo hit 60 mph and the car sat there sounding like a Cuisinart full of
My first guess was a dead tranny, but the car was obviously engaging in gear.
Next guess is a dead CV joint...but this is totally unlike any CV problems
I've ever had with any car.
