How do I stop the grinding when starting 2000 Astro Van


Hello Anonymous...

To inspect the teeth on the ring gear requires the inspection to check the full 360 degrees of the ring gear. Looking past the inspection cover to examine a small portion of the ring gear may reveal no issues, but only for that section. Eventually the ring gear will end up positioned above the starter drive gear which will skip across the bad teeth creating your grinding noise when you try and start the Astro,.

My 97 dodge intrepid is fine if i put it straight into drive but when i put it in reverse it makes a loud grinding noise and continues into all gears


good luck them cars are headaches. but i work on similar if not the same situation but you have to raise the front of the vehicle to be sure. i do believew the bearings may be worn in either driveaxles. more than likely its the inner cv joint. passenger side

I heard a loud pop, then the vehicle wont move in any gear.It then grinds when I try to put it in park.


It sounds like you broke a Constant Velocity joint (CV Joint). The pop was probably the joint breaking. When you put it in gear it's just spinning. Think of one of your hands as the transmission. Hold a pencil that would be the CV Joint(s) and axle, and use the other hand to hold the other end of the pencil. That's the front hub (part that makes the wheel turn). So you have ...hand, pencil...hand = trans, axle... wheel. If you hold the pencil firmly with both hands, and spin the pencil with one, both hands still move.

If the pencil breaks...the one not spinning does nothing.

So...The transmission is trying to make the van go, but the cv joint is broken, so the wheels aren't spinning. When you put the van in park, the transmission doesn't know the vans not moving. Therefore it's making the same noise as if you put the van in park while driving. If you must start the van and put it in gear to see if the driver's or passenger's axle is just spinning. Shut the van off, wait a minute for the axle shaft to stop spinning, and then put it in park.

Is this a manual, or automatic? Manual, you may need to replace a driveaxle(or both). If automatic, check fluid, and linkage. If fluid is low, or empty, fix leaks, and fill with fluid. Have a diagnostics done on car for transmission codes. If manual, and driveaxles checkout to be okay, check any sensors on transmission. Check sensors on automatic as well; and fluid. (manaul transmission fluid is check by oil dipstick; oil lubes engine and tranny.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?
