    The title says a lot. It was leaking so I parked it for a while till I had time and budget to look into this. I believe the pan may be a bit dented from a bump, but I haven't lifted the car yet to be sure. Regardless, it will only move in reverse and in forward gears it shrieks (I tested that...
