Have you checked the transmission drive belt that comes from the engine back to the transmission?

All of the sudden. No previous problems
Technician: JohnF2015, Technician replied 2 years ago

I would recommend that you check the transmission drive belt from the engine back to the transmission. It is the most likely cause of your problem.
