Car engine runs fine but quit going forwards or reverse.
When you put it into gear there is a grinding noise. I was told to look at the speedometer and see if it was moving and it is not so I think I have a bad transaxle. But my question is why can I move this car in neuteral when a car I had in the past when the transaxle went it was not movable

I have a 2004 kia optima it jerks when I go into reverse it was driving ... start and run fine butwhen I put it in drive or any other gear it dies! ... 2002 Hyundai Elantra GT.
Check the front engine mount..If its bad it could make a noise while turning or reverse..Hold the car in gear with your foot on the brake and carefully raise the engine ..do it in both reverse or forward and look for excessive movement..
I have a 97 ford explorer sport 4x4. When i drive at a constant speed it's fine but when i let off the gas I hear a grinding noise. if i put in nutral as soon as i hear it the noise quits areif I shoot the gas to it it quits. What could it be?
What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.
Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.
