Crunching and not moving is a drive line issue. Could be the transmission needs a rebuild. A used Interceptor is not always a good purchase.


A used interceptor is almost never a good purchase. They are driven very hard and sometimes not serviced properly. Sounds like it needs a transmission.


the car was running smooth before it all a sudden made a loud crunching noise it still drives forward but has a loud crunching sound but the car will not reverse and when i try to place it in park the car sounds like its grinding or something so i have on the e brake and a tire block because its not shifting out of drive at all even tho the shiftier is visually working.


Ok update today i had a mechanic take a look he found out the right side axle is snapped and the differential had to be replaced
