Happy Helpertons of the forum.... Out of the blue, I jumped in my car fired her up, put her in gear and pedal on, but the car wasn't hardly moving. I first thought my e-brake was on, but not the case. The chk engine light was now on, and I didn't think I would make it home. BUT I DID. I had noticed earlier that day that the turbo gauge was acting erratically, or so it seemed. While I limped her home, I observed that the gear indicator ( P, R, D, D2, D3 etc) said I was in Park the whole drive home. (probably not related, she likes to mix it up a bit) I had her towed over the hill to a place I can work on her, but do not know where to begin. Fires right up and idles fine. Just no power at all. Any tips will be as always appreciated.

When I had a sudden loss of power, the large charge air cooler hose, right below the blowoff valve, was loose. Could be it, unless that gear indicator issue is related.
