Re: Transmission/Clutch Problems?
Wow! Your symptoms sound as simple as a throwout bearing going south, but as bad as a bearing inside the transmission.
My gut feeling is it's the clutch itself. A spring's come loose or broken, causing it not to release and making noise.
No matter what, it'll have to be taken apart and looked at.
Sorry it isn't something simple.
I'd tow it if you aren't going to do it yourself. Trying to drive it like that if it's the trans could do lots of expensive damage.
