On my way home tonight my car took a crap!!!! At first it seemed like the clutch was slipping cause when you give it gas it just revs up and doesn't move mainly under a load. So after nursing it home (42 miles) I got to the ally behind my house and it would not go up the hill so I put it in four wheel drive and it worked fine????? so could someone please tell me what is going on????

Sounds like the splines in one of the front hubs are striped out. Pop the center caps off the front wheels and look for damage.
If you have a helper, try to drive it while they watch the front axle nut, if it's spinning but the wheels aren't, it's definitely a stripped out hub splines.

Does sound like what my brat did to me when it stripped a hub. When the rpms go up does the speedometer climb with it.

stripped hub for sure. do some searching about axle nuts. I bet the washers were installed backwards.

The correct answer is......All of the above......Happened to me too. Easily repaired!

mine also did it but was due to the wheel bearing seizing up
