We were sitting at a stop light on our way to a baseball game on the 4th of July. As the light changed, I pushed the gas and heard a loud "CLUNK". The only gear I could get the van to go into was reverse. Clinton, our muscle man in residence, pushed the van across the intersection and into the McDonald's parking lot.
Luckily, my mom was with us, with her handy dandy AAA card. We were able to call and have it towed in to the shop for free. So, that was 5 days ago. As of tonight, we still have not heard anything about it. Dave has called, but the shop is so busy, they haven't even got around to looking at it yet.
We are about 90% sure that it is the transmission. (nice...right?) The good thing...we have an extended warranty that should cover it, minus $100. That would be great! But, as we are still waiting to hear, we have no idea what we're in for. I'm not sure the van is even worth what we'd have to pay for a new transmission.
I feel VERY anxious about it! I sure hope they call tomorrow!
