I actually just figured out noise is coming from around where catalyic converter is. I now see that the plate that protects the converter (heat plate ?) is totally off. I just took it off. I will see if it still makes noise. Can I just have them weld a new one back one or do I need a new catalyc converter ?

Yes its the tranny, but make sure the fluid level is good, as a low fluid level would also cause this

Transmission making loud grinding/sucking sound, doesn't go when in drive or reverse


Is it an automatic John? When was the last time you checked the level of your ATF (automatic transmission fluid)?

There are many different types, so make sure you get the right one.

If it is a manual shift, check the gearbox oil level. If that is OK, you need a transmission specialist. Look in Yellow Pages.

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.

The clutch assembly seems to be at fault. Either its worn-out or has to be readjusted(reset). This noise indicates improper transmission of power from the machine to the wheels and since this has automatic gears, it should rectified at the earliest...sodeep

Reverse gear has grinding noise...?


Have them flush the fluid out under warranty and put in new fluid, and have them bleed the clutch lines in case air is getting in there. Audi and VW claim lifetime transmission fluid but it's BS - I've changed relatively low mile fluid from these cars and it was horrendous. It's possible that the fluid itself is causing trouble, but it's more likely that it is a synchro problem. If it was a clutch issue, you should have problems with more than just reverse gear - a clutch simply engages and disengages the engine and transmission, regardless of which gear it is. The problem (if not fixed by fluid) is in the transmission, and being under warranty, don't accept another "suggestion" like they're giving you. Changing your clutch isn't gonna do it.
