So yesterday I got off of work and started up the car. I shifted into reverse and it felt like it did something. Heard some grumbling, slight, from the cabin. I could not hear this from outside the car. Stepping on the gas did not do anything other than revving up the engine.
I put it into drive and tried to push it backwards. I was able to push the car about 3 inches (uphill) definitely more than drivetrain slop.
I am going to pull the car home and try to raise the car to get more visual determination.
I really hope it is not the tranny.
