Since we first got the car (for son) over ebay (stupid of me) from PA, immediately upon arrival it has been popping in the front end when turning from a starting position (forward or reverse). Then after a few days of seldom driving, during a sharp turn in a parking lot, it popped again in the front and while in drive and then it acted as if it was in nuetral and would not move anymore except in reverse and forward only in 1st gear. I finally took a leap of faith and started to the transmission shop and while on the way was able to manually shift in to each gear, but only on the fly. After getting it to a couple garages (Chevrolet and transmission shop included) they were baffeled?? No engine light or any others were on until after Chevrolet tried a diognostics and then the gear shifter light, Gearbox manual/sport mode warning lamps also began to flash while on my way back home (2 miles). However, from the time I left the dealership service dept. the Disco. started and shifted from every gear??? Still planning to get it to Land Rover for opinion, but afraid of being jerked around. Chevy mechanic stated he got these 3 codes in the ECM= P0130, P1590 and P0170???
No, but as I mentioned before there were no warning lights on anywhere when the popping in the front end began?
Not sure what you mean by ripping a harness out, but will replacing the ECM fix these concerns?
Yes, whenever a turn is attempted, it pops and jerks...
I just noticed I didn't put in one more piece of information...one day in the middle of all this, while driving down the highway, a burnt smell with smoke emitted from under the driver's side...I've been reading a lot trying to figure this out, is it possibly that the ECU burnt up and is the offender?
