Just had the car flat-bedded to the dealer which is about 1 hour away.

Was pulling into my community and in 2nd gear I rounded the turn, I started to accelerate and then a "Loud Bang" that scared the CRAP out of me. As it happened I let off the gas and cont' to coast, after I saw that no warning light or that the engine was not on fire I tried to accelerate. Nothing, only thing was increase of RPM's with no acceleration. As I was coasting it sounded like my Trans was being draged behind me or maybe a couple rocks in the trans. I pulled over and car ran fine so I turned the car off and :unsure:

Started the car back up to see if I was crazy..

Car idles normal

Clutch in or out no noise

All gears and R no acceleration "RPM's rise only"

When car is stoped no noise from rear end

Car had Flywheel and Clutch replaced by dealer 800 miles ago

Before I get the dread call. What should I be prepared for?

Well, Went and talked to the service mgt...

He can't even get the car into the service bay. The car will not move anymore.

Had the car flat bedded up and after they took it off the car is stuck.

Looks like it's going to be awhile before I see her agian

I gave him a big list.

Wet sand scratches

Clutch squeal

Car creaks when going up a driveway and over bumps slow.

Engine oil is over filled (was like this when I received car from last service)

Purge Air Fan does not work.

Front Differential has oil seeping

Right sun visor broke off

Buzzing noise from engine just after starting engine goes away once car is moving. Sound like a regulator

4 Wheel Alignment

TSB 3041 Dated: 07/00 regarding replacement of the actuator lever for the clutch (insure completion)

Talked to the service mgt today.

He stated that a spring was what caused the problem with the trans.

He stated that the clutch, flywheel and trans were all in good condition.

I asked how did this happen and he stated that when they installed the flywheel and clutch that they didn't reinstall it right.

What spring is he talking about?

He really could not explain it to me. He said he needs to talk to the mech more about it, but stated that the test drive went well
