Well if it grinds when trying to get into reverse the clutch is not disegageing all the way. the cable could be worn out,the release bearing could be worn out or the push rod cold be worn out or in my case it was all 3 but mine has 250000 on it. Worst case if all of that is ok then the pushrod bushing is worn and you need to drop the tranny for that so you might as wee just replace the cluth too.
But if it grinds while IN reverse then the reverse
gears are shot. Hows the gear lube?

Grinding sound


Is the knocking sound when the car is moving or sitting still as well? Does the grinding sound happen just as you put the car into reverse or does it keep grinding?
These transmissions are very problematic, especially if they are not properly maintained. The most likely candidates are a cracked flywheel or a broken drum inside the transmission. Either way, it sounds like the transmission will have to be removed to pinpoint the problem.

2003 Subaru outback h6 3.0. Starts fine, when I shift into reverse or drive I get a loud grinding noise


Is your 2003 Subaru Outback automatic or manual transmission?
If it is automatic, then your transmission sounds like it's malfunctioning into the reverse gear as it is not aligning properly.
If it is manual, then your transmission sounds like it may have a bad clutch or bad reverse gear.
Either solution is not cheap. Good luck.

What is it when in reverse the automatic transmission on a 1999 Camaro grinds?


Reverse is not "synchronized" forward gears are, so it does make some noise, try shifting to 2nd before engaging reverse to slow gear rotation and limit gear clash or grind.

Auto transmision grinds in reverse, put in dr grinding stops but doesn't move


sounds like it is time to get the transmission rebuilt. usually when they go out you will only have reverse. It sounds like the oil pump has exploded inside the trans. sorry for the bad news

I have a 91 honda accord with an automatic trans. & when i shift into reverse it refuses to engage & makes a high pitch gear slipping grinding sound ! NOT GOOD ! ,I just replaced the transmission con


Definitely not good. The transmission is slipping internally due to worn gears and clutch packs. It will have to come out for rebuilding, IMO. Have a transmission shop check it out.
Good luck.

Reverse is grinding when i try to put it in gear .other gears dont grind but its very hard ti shift .its a 2000lanos.


If this is a manual transmission ,then the clutch master,or the clutch slave is by-passing,and,or leaking and causing the problem,or the clutch pedal axle bushing has worn out.

I have an 1985 Bronco 2 with five speed manual transmission, it grinds when I go to shift into reverse with the clutch all the way in but shifting into 1-OD if fine its just reverse??????


The gears 1 and OD, (and any other EXCEPT reverse) have synchronizers that will reduce grinding, for a while...
Your condition sounds like the clutch is not fully disengauging, OR you may not be waiting long enough before attempting to select reverse... Check the clutch adjustment for full disengaugement....Do not let this continue or you will wear out the synchros in the other gears....

Manual transmission.at times the car will not shift into first gear.once the car starts to roll it then shifts when forced.Followed by a loud grinding sound.


The "grinding" sound leads me to believe that your clutch is not completely disengaging. Does it also do it in Reverse? First gear and reverse gear is not syncronized. Sometimes it helps to go to reverse, then bring it back to first to keep from having to force the thing into gear. Forcing it will bend the shifting fork inside the transmission. If it has been forced a few times, you may allready have a bent fork. Anyway, if it is also "grinding" going into Reverse, it is time for a clutch.
