If 4x4, there is a vacuum switch on top of the transfer case that can pull fluid from an overfull unit and put it into the engine! Does it smoke? Check transfer case fluid level, if over full there is a seal leaking between the transmission and transfer case and this vacuum switch is defective also! Good vehicles! Seen them go well over 200,000 miles!! Regardless of other 'opinions'.!
Check engine light on? Maybe flashing?
Axle shaft popped out of transaxle or internal damage. Does park still keep the car from rolling? Can it be pushed if it is in park ? BRAKE OFF!
Have a combustion leak test performed at most any repair shop, they can tell you more after that!
Telephone call to be sure! Estimator covers a broad range of prices!!
Usually mounted on the transmissiom where the shifter cable hooks to the linkage. Should be adjustable.
Now is a good time!!
No way we can help, it's going to need a mechanic and some hands-on testing to know for sure what the problem is!
Have it tested to see if the head gadket is the problem, no way to know for sure otherwise! It's called a combustion leak test.
Dont guess at it, have it diagnosed before replacing parts! All we can do here is guess at it too, that doesn't help!
