1995 SC2
Default 95 SC2 w/98 DOHC engine with tranny issues

Driving to work yesterday and coolant lights started blinking but soon went away w/o coming on again. On my way home about 3-5 miles into the trip it sounded like I was dragging something. Checked under the car and engine bay. Things looked OK. Drove a little further and same result. The noise presisted off and on on my 45 mile trip and eventually stopped. I went to check the car again after getting home and car would not go in reverse or neutral while idling. I had to cut the car off to roll back out of the driveway. I also tried to throttle up the car under the hood and could not. tried drive up the street and heard a thump and felt like something tried to turn steering to the left. Turn around and came home.

Any clue as to what may have happened and an approx. cost........

On a positive note, I may have messed up the car but it got be home

The tranny is an auto. The tranny fluid was changed about 6 weeks ago by the dealer.

Doesn't sound like a known failure.

Jack up the front of the car and spin and shake the wheels. Listen for noise from wheel bearings, CV joint, or a broken axle.

You sure it was coolant light not Battery or brake? Check all fluid levels and serpentine belt tension.

Brought car to shop. Second and reverse gears are stuck with second winning the fight. (car going forward in all gears)

Looks like I will be going with a used tranny with a years warranty
