Start with replacing transmission fluid. They do recommednd Dextron III but usually syntetic oil 5w-30 does this job very well. But grinding sound maybe the sign of transmission problem
You can take it to a qualified shop (I dont know there you are), and had them run the codes for the transmission (OBD I)

Sounds like your transmission is bad. You'll need to take it to a shop to have it checked out.

My bmw 320i auto transmission gears was working fine untill it was packed for two years, now the car goes reverse when it put on drive


Check the shifter linkage, and any bushings that may have deteriorated in the linkage. If that's not the problem, replace the transmission fluid and filter.

Hi

It sounds as though you either have a faulty O2 sensor, or there is a fuel pressure issue, which from your description, could be due to a worn fuel pump.

If the car performs ok under full acceleration, but plays up at either part throttle or no throttle, then you may well have a faulty O2 sensor.

Very best regards
