I recently had several parts replaced on my 02 Dodge Intrepid within the last few months, including the brake lines, motor, gas lines, sensors, spark plugs, and a few rusted parts that were busted while the motor was being replaced. I have had my car back for a week after most recently getting the gas line replaced. (My gas line froze the same day I got it back after getting the motor fixed!)
I havent had an issues until Saturday morning my engine light came on. I drove it throughout the day no problems, then I stopped at a red light and had trouble accelerating when I went to turn, my car then jerked forward and and ran seemingly normal, but the problem continued everytime I stopped or slowed down. After 5 minutes or less of this I parked my car and called my mechanic. After a half hr of no help I restarted my car and circled the parking lot with no issue and headed to a friends nearby. The stalled accelerating and jerking began again until I couldnt accelerating at all without waiting and restarting my car, and then finally there was no moving it at all.
I had it towed this morning and was told I had no transmission fluid. After replacing the fluid my car was driven to my house without an issue, so im assuming I didnt blow my trans? Several hours later, I went to start my car and there was a large amount of red fluid under the front of the car by the bumper and it wont move once again.
Obviously I have a leak, but I dont know if the leak was the cause of the initial problem or if the problem caused the leak. Please help!
