While Driving, Clanky Sounds Ensue

Post by Mmorabe »

I have a 2005 Freestyle SEL and recently it has been making very odd Clanky Sounds every so often while accelerating. It's often enough it makes me wonder if the CVT is jacked or maybe it's something simpler.

I can record a sound bite if needed but seeing if this could be something someone has experienced!

We put it up on Jack's at first and put the transmission into drive and the wheels almost didn't want to roll at all without a little push from us.

Took it for a second opinion and of course they want to do a replacement but maybe someone can help me just from my crappy description!
