Q: My car makes a grinding noise when i put it in gear and wont accelerate

asked by on

When I put my car in gear it makes a grinding noise by the front left side driver tire and will not accelerate

My car has 126 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The problem sounds like you may have broke an axle CV joint or the problem is in the transmission? I suggest having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and check to see which one is failing.
