Help, loud clunk and shut down now won't start

Post by Lizw10977 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 10:27 am

Ok so I got up this morning went out started my 2007 freestyle to warm it up no problem 10 minutes later shut it off locked up my house got back in restarted backed up out of the driveway when I shifted to drive there was a single loud reverberating clunk (what I would imagine it would sound and feel like if someone struck the motor with a sledgehammer) anyway the car immediatly died with no discernable out of time fire/misfire that would have indicated possible timing/chain failure. I put it in park and tried to restart it I hear the solenoid engage but sounds like the starter is just freespinning and not engaging and the car won't even crank..... Any ideas
