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.

2003 Subaru outback h6 3.0. Starts fine, when I shift into reverse or drive I get a loud grinding noise


Is your 2003 Subaru Outback automatic or manual transmission?
If it is automatic, then your transmission sounds like it's malfunctioning into the reverse gear as it is not aligning properly.
If it is manual, then your transmission sounds like it may have a bad clutch or bad reverse gear.
Either solution is not cheap. Good luck.

you need a new reverse gear. the rest of your transmission should be fine but it will need to be rebuilt because you probably have pieces of the reverse gear floating around in it. it will eventually ruin the transmission if you don't fix it soon.

It sounds like you may have a broken drive drum or planetary gear set inside the transmision. I believe you have a 4L60E transmission in this vehicle and I've seen several failures similar to this which require the transmission to be removed and repaired. It's always worth a good look at everything on the outside first just to be sure but I think you probably have an internal mechanical failure of some type

My '96 gmc yukon makes a grinding noise in reverse and first gear. Power is fine just the noise until it shifts to second an then no noise and no problem.


first gear and/or reverse may be noisy:
Either a torrington bearing or a planetary bearing is on its way out. Trans will eventually die a loud, catastrophic death. Cheaper to rebuild now (saves further damage to hard parts), but requires R&R. It is drivable until it breaks.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

When i try to start the car it makes a funny sound and wont start it sounds like something is not catching


Good indication of a bad starter. Is it just clicking or is it a grinding ugly noise?. The second is definately the starter.

Grinding, 1990 suburban


This could be 1 of 2 Things. Either the Transmission needs Service REALLY Badly or you have a Tooth Broken off of the Gears in the Rear End.
