Transmission making loud grinding/sucking sound, doesn't go when in drive or reverse

Is it an automatic John? When was the last time you checked the level of your ATF (automatic transmission fluid)?

There are many different types, so make sure you get the right one.

If it is a manual shift, check the gearbox oil level. If that is OK, you need a transmission specialist. Look in Yellow Pages.

My1997 gran prix makes grinding noise when put in park

Sounds like either one of the axle shafts came out of the transmission or a cv joint broke. I bet when in park you can still roll the car.

Gear type noise when driving.noise changes with speed of car.stops when car is not moving.2000 pontiac gran prix

Hi, if this noise changes when turning left or right, (gets louder or quieter), there is a good chance a front hub is bad. For instance, if you turn right, and the noise gets louder,the left hub is bad, and vice versa for the other side. You can normally jack it up, spin the wheel and hear the noise, or wiggle the wheel, and see if it has play. Good luck...

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) when I turn my wheel, rather left or right I hear a moaning. Noise and its very annoying, help me!

Check the power steering fluid, have a helper turn the wheel and look under the hood and see if the power steering pump is making noise, check the P/S belt to make sure it's tight.

Knocking in motor when it is in park, goes away as soon as you put it in gear. thought it was the tranny at first but it will go into gear and move now. 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.1L Automatic

Just because it moves doesnt mean it is not the trany, you will need to pin point the noise, a common problem is the crankshaft pulley, this sound it makes when the pulley goes bad sounds like a bad motor or trany. check this by removing the belt, locate the belt tensioner and pull to release the tension off the belt. make a diagram of how the blet goes on the pulleys so you can reinstall it correctly. after you remove the belt grab the crank pulley and see if it moves, if it turns back and fourth a little, like 2 inch each way then the pulley is bad, also check the rest of the pulleys by spinning them and checking for a noise. with the belt off start the engine and see if the noise is still there, with out the belt there should be little or no noise then this would mean the pulley is the problem but if the noise is the same then move on to the engine, you will need to listen closely, it may be a bad engine bearing or even a flywheel, this noise may be hard for you to find, even a tech would take time to find out the noise, i think you should stop at a shop to have them listen to it just so you dont mis diagnose the noise, this may be many things and if its somthing you are not sure of then a shop should listen to it, its hard to tell you whats wrong without me hearing this noise. good luck and good day.
