I have the same problem in my 1991 Integra LS Sedan Automatic, when i put it in reverse it makes a grinding noise and won't engage...i've been told the "reverse fork" or something is probably bent which can be common from rocking a car from "D" to "R" to get unstuck from mud or snow and to fix this the tranny needs to be taken apart and fixed, or if any cheaper then replace the transmission. Could also do an auto to manual trans conversion, but those are the only options. Fixing the specific reverse problem would be cheaper than rebuilding the whole trans which a lot of ppl say is the solution

If you have no reverse then yes it needs to be rebuilt. as far as the whining it could be in one of the differentials. or in trans? just depends on where you hear it

Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.
