    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!

    All my electrical components stopped working, lights, radio, side mirrors,horn, and power locks. Also, my transmission is failing, I can't even drive it anymore. The gears slip all of the time, for some reason one of the bands inside of the engine part keeps burning out. The check engine light goes in and off and the gas gage keeps acting up. If I filled my tank, suddenly out of nowhere the needle will plunge down to E as if it needs to be fill again, even though it's not leaking. oh, also the window gets stuck while attempting to roll it up. Just WAY too many problems with this car, and sadly it seems common. I don't want to fix it, bc it's not worth it. want to see if I can sell it for part (if they are even good) and then junk the rest and buy something less stressful.
