So tonight, I was pulling out of the driveway in reverse and there was a loud "clunk" and the car stopped. I tried to keep reversing but it wouldn't move. It felt like the E-brake was on, but it wasn't. I put the car in Drive and it moved forward, but again felt as though the E-brake was on, or the car was in first. I pulled a quick U-turn and pulled back into the driveway.

Long story short: reverse won't work, the car moves forward, but not like it should, and - most troubling - the car won't roll freely in neutral. I can't even have it towed because I don't want to drag it up onto the rollback.

This doesn't seem like a transmission issue, because the car was behaving normally two hours earlier and there has been no slippage. It was just flushed 500 miles ago.

I'm stumped. Thoughts?

time to check if your parking brake went kaboom.

Sounds like your parking brake took a dump, like Avboden said. I would check that first.

Lift the whole car on stands, put in drive and see if the wheels are spinning. WHY IN THE WORD people flush a transmission that do not have a filter???........... It was just flushed 500 miles ago??????
