Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

I just want to know what it could be and what the pricing will be to fix it
Toyota Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No I was needing an oil change I was actually making an appointment tomorrow for one and my car was starting to sound loud like a motorcycle when I would drive it
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

were you able to restart the engine?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I could start the car but it wouldn't move when I put it into drive
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

ok, then it wasnt oil. it was transmission fluid

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It was all black. What would that mean
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

it means you never had the transmission fluid changed before, and it was extremely dirty.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
What made it all leak out
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

what is the year, model and engine size of this vehicle?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It is a 4cl 2008 chevy hhr. I thought it was oil because it said I needed an oil change and when the car stopped working the oil might came on and then the car stopped working
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

if the engine still starts and wont move when put in gear, then it was transmission fluid, probably due to a rusted through transmission cooler line.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Do you know what the repair to that would be?
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

if thats what happened then it should be minimal.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Would that explain the loud noises?
Toyota Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago
