I have a 1997 Gmc Jimmy with 125,000 miles. It was fine until
yesterday, i had went to work and stopped at the store on the way home.
When i came out of the store, the check engine soon light came
on.........i thought, well it needs an oil change soon, maybe thats it.
The garage was right up the road so i thought i will take it in and
change the oil. As i started to back out..........it would barely move,
dragging as if the transmission was out. But as i pushed down on the
gas, it slowly started going faster and i was able to go
..........stopped at a red light and again when i started out.....would
barely go but as i pushed down on the gas, it went faster but still
felt like the trans was going out. The garage i took it too, said it
was the transmission and i should have it towed to a trans shop. I did
and they called me today and said the transmission is fine nothing
showing up on codes. Said they had driven it and the light never came
on and it was driving fine. He said he thought it might be the brakes,
maybe they were locking up and causing it.
I said yes, i had the brakes replaced months ago and i felt like they
were slipping and it was squeeking like crazy. I have taken back 3
times and the garage said nothing wrong............just metal in the
brake pads., and the ABS brakes..just normal.
Please, someone......what is wrong with it? :) I hate to have it towed
to a brake shop if thats not the problem. Could it be the ABS?
