Cobalt Gear and Tire Problems?
I turn on my Cobalt, put it in gear, release the brake and the car will not move.
I was coming home from the movies, pulled into my parking spot and heard a loud sound. Kinda just thought I had ran over a stick and it dragged across the bottom. We sat there talking for a bit then I was going to move my car to shine my lights on something. I reversed, switch back to drive and started moving forward then everything froze. I pressed the gas but nothing would happen and pressed the brake until it would barely let me press it down enough to put the car back in park. I then restarted my car and we were able to move but it kept making a loud almost metal like popping sound under the front is where it sounded like. I pulled out, got out and look under the car but there was nothing there. So I didn't run over anything. I went around the block and every time I'd turn it'd make that loud popping sound. Got back, parked the car and gave up for the night since it was like 3am. The next day I contacted a friend and we took it out for a drive with no problems except the front driver side tire seemed to be whistling. No popping noises though, no having to restart the car to get it to move.
The second time this happened I started my car, put it in reverse, released the break and nothing. Pressing the gas wouldn't even make the engine louder. Third times the same thing and that popping noise has never returned.
However if I restart the car it all works just fine both times. Whats causing this? It's happened three times now...
Also when driving down the road my drivers side front tire seems to squeak sometimes when turning, but mostly just a whistle. And what was that Loud popping noises??!
