While driving home from work, I stopped at a stop sign and it wouldn't move. It was like it would not go into gear or fell out of gear. I towed it home and once I got home it would only catch in the reverse gear. If I shifted into any other gear it just did nothing or sometimes it would catch in drive and slam forward hard. It also made this strange whizzing sound like something was spinning constantly. I don't have the money to invest in fixing the car so it has just been sitting. U pull and pay is about to get a call to come and give me what I can get for it!
