Tranny or CV Joints HELP

Well when I put my car in either; OD, D, 2, or R, when I give it gas my motor just REVS, and the speedometer moves with the TACH, and revs up aswell. Is my tranny blow? If I put it in Park, I have to push down my e-brake otherwise the car will roll. If the car is not all the way reved down, and you put it in park I hear I awfull grinding noise, which I think it coming from the front passenger side. Thanks in advance, hope you can Help


HOPE IT DIDNT DOUBLE POST..............

You kind of did. But who cares anyways. Sounds like you got tranny troubles. What's the year, model and engine of your Taurus/Sable???

Re: What to do?

Without seeing the car I can't guarantee what the problem is but from what you have posted it sounds like a bad CV joint which is part of the axle shaft.

Have a mechanic look at the car.
