Well, i’m not much of a mechanic, but i want to get a general idea of
what sort of problems i’m facing here.
My car is a standard, and at first, i lost power to it , it had no
guts anymore. it would rev to about 4k rpm, hold steady as the speed
increased (slowly) and then finally drop down for the next gear shift.
then today, my gf said the car smelled really bad (which it did). i
then went to the gas station to get some gas and as i was pulling out,
it barely made it out, it was losing all power. so i tried to make it
home (almost made it) and it finally lost all power. at one point, i
couldn’t even shift gears (so i pulled off the road and shut it off,
then back on and i could shift again) but once it was off the road it
was toast. i had to get it towed home.
any ideas? any and all help would be appreciated.
