Default My Car Shit The Bed?

04 maxima,,


so i drove up to Boston from NC a couple weeks ago and no problem right? ..right
well on the way back a couple days ago, i was driving the 865 mile back to Jacksonville NC with a heavy load ( aa heacy oak table on the roof, and trunk full of shinanagans) well when hit virginia i hurt a pop and the right front tire went shak{ i mean very shaky) so i pull over and behind the right front tire was smoking extremely bad. after 10 min it stoped and i drove 50 feet to the gas station ahead, even at a low speed the shaking was horrible. well i was stuck with making a decision that would cost me my car.. drive the next 4 hours to jacksonville since my son and wife where with me, (19 month old ) or stay there with a thumb up my ass because i didnt have money to get it fixed right there plus if i didnt check in back from vacation with my command in the marine corps the next day i would be in jail.. so i decided to take the trip very slowly. i made home and on the way back from checking in (mind you always shaking when i was hitting the gas but not when i let go) i come to a stop light.. this is where i met my demise/ when the light turned green i hit the gas.... nothing just reved up with a horivble noise. i pull to the right and put it in park. i let off the brake and it still rolled foward. WTFFFFFFF... had to use the E brake.. what can be the problem?? had it towed home but the driver told me it was my CV shaft??? the bearing went out which caused the shaking. but why did my car stop driving?? i hope its not the transmission because it did not give me any trouble... Calling for extreme help..

That I dont know. Maybe there is some sort of fail safe so when some thing like this happens you cant do more damage. Im sure some one with more knowledge will chime in.

if your cv axle blows, the car will still drive. when you turn you would hear a lot of popping noises. but... what im guessing is, maybe you blew the fuck out of the axle to where it stripped the axle completely so when the tranny was trying to turn your axle, it had no gears to grab. think of a stripped bolt... getting a socket on a rounded bolt is pretty much impossible.

I don't really know much about the shaking, but the other part sounds like a tranny issue to me, I know from experience with my car prior to the maxima, hopefully not I know how it feels to dish out that much money on a transmission

Something snapped, either the axle or CV. Or something got stripped at either end of the axle.

As for the car moving while in park. Ever have the car in park and jack the car up and realize you forgot to loosen the lug nuts because the wheel spins. If both sides of the car are lifted then both wheels will spin in opposite directions. That is how a differential works. If there is no resistance on one side due to something busted or stripped then the other is going to spin freely. The transmission side of the transaxle probably was not harmed.

I know you want some one to help you with this to help you save some money,but Im going to be honest,it sounds like you have a significant problem. My advice,get it in ASAP and have it properly diagnosed. No one here can tell you the seriousness of what happened without seeing it. I know it sucks but Im not sure what other options you have...

What Don said. I am sure that it is going to be pricey, but I doubt it's the tranny. Everyone jumps on tranny because of the Max's history, but I think you would have had other signs if it were a tranny. Doesn't the CEl blink for tranny issues? Did that happen?

I replaced my Passsenger side axle about three months ago now. It was fairly easy given we had all the right tools and a breaker bar. It literally just slipped out of the transmission when changing my struts and springs cost was about 80 but had 150 core charge from Napa Autoparts
