New to the auto world!!!
91 corolla, 4 cld, 140000 miles, automatic
This morning the car started nicely and as i moved to about 100 feets, the engine lost power. Full acceleration would not help (would not move forward). I could hear a clank sound as soon as this happend from the rear of the car.
I was able to take to it back by pressing and releasing the gas pedal in quick succesion. This gave very little power to the engine, but managed to take it back.
Interestingly, the power to the engine seems fine when the car is in the Park position. It shows full life when i press the gas pedal.
Also, the check engine light came for a brief while.
Please help with what could be the possible cause and resolution.
