Why is my engine grinding in my 1998 saturn

The engine does not usually grind. It is most likely the transmission. When a transmission grinds it means that it is unable to shift properly, a couple of things that can cause that are the cluch needs to be replaced, or one of the gears is stripped.

Car has no movement and grinding noise in all gears

First, check the operation and adjustment of the clutch. If the clutch is hydraulic, then check the oil level and bleed if necessary.
If this isn't the issue, then first, change the gear oil and retry.

Gears are hard to get into or they grind

Hello Hannah, I don't believe just yet that your problem is inside your transmission. I would first check the adjustment and condition of your clutch. If it were an internal transmission problem it would probably be with one gear ,not all of them. You aren't grinding fourth gear because it is possible to shift into fourth gear without using your clutch if your RPM's are high enough. If you are really lucky you will only have to adjust the clutch, and if your not so lucky you may have the go for a new clutch, preasure plate, and throwout bearing. In any case I would like to know how you make out, please contact me and GOOD LUCK.

Cluch won't dis engage

How long have you had your car? How many miles on it?

Maybe the clutch plate gone, if the plate is not thick enough, you won't change the gear.
