Hello, I was hoping you could help me out a bit, so I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse gt. 2 days ago I was driving to school while it was raining , and as I hit the gas to make a turn the tires slipped and I lost traction for a split second, afterwards when I hit the gas to keep going my car started to jerk, everything I stepped on the gas it felt as if the brake we being applied and soon as I hit the gas and let go it would jerk forward. I would still move but not much. So soon after about 15 second later as it’s still doing that I park the car turn it off then back on and I road around a block for 5 mins to see what was wrong and it felt like nothing ever happened. I went to class and about 2 hours later when it was time for me to leave, I start to drive the car again and I want to drive and about 5 mins of driving the cars battery light turned on and i think the car might have died and then at the same time the steering wheel locked up, I was pulling up to a red light so I put my car into park and turned it completely off and back on. I knew it couldn’t of been that my battery was bad or the alternator was going bad because both the battery and the alternator are less the 2 months old and I got then both brand new. So I was surprised it happened. Soon as the car turned back on I put the car into drive and this is where the issue I need help with come to light. As I put the car into drive it won’t move, then I tried putting it into reverse and nothing. The just revs. I can feel it going in to hear but the car won’t move. I’ve checked the transmission fluid and it’s look clean doesn’t smell burnt or nothing. I can’t figure out what might of been the cause of this issue. I can feel the car go into gear but the car won’t move, when I was on be road it was on a incline so it road backwards a bit but wouldn’t go forward. I’ve thought of it maybe being the transmission that gave out but I’ve never had any gears slipping or heard anything bad when this all happened.
I forgot to mention my car is a v6 hardtop and it’s an automatic transmission. I know you’ve said Mitsubishi’s transmission are bad but I’ve haven’t had any signs of it having any issues. Also the car has 140,000 miles and I’m the 2nd owner of the car, so I’m sure it’s been kept in good shape before me.
