Default Can't cruise the cruiser

Hello all..I have recently received an 03 cruiser..previous owner said it made a pop sound and now won't move..here is what I see happening. ..the car rolls when engaged in park,or any other gear for that matter.but when put it reverse or drive it goes through all gears as if it was driving..and even the speedo is recording miles and speed...but still car no cruise....I am a mechanic so the teardown of this trans shouldn't be difficult. .but never opened one of these up...
Van anyone give me an idea of what may have happened..?

My first thought is a bad CV joint. You have 2 on each axle and I'd check to see if one is "free wheeling".

Welcome to the forum.

I agree with VOS, check your CV axles. You didn't say, I guess it is an automatic trans.

I'd guess so too: "car rolls when engaged in park,"

Sometimes I just miss the obvious. My wife said I should share that.

Cv's are good...motor was running..car moves a tiny little bit once engaged into gear...could spider gears couse this if the locking pin broke?
