1986 Tercel 4wd wagon shutters in 2nd, 3rd sometimes and now 4th gear. Transmission problem or something else?

leave the tranny for the moment as selecting gear faults can be attributed to clutch operation problems especially in first and reverse where the clutch input shaft would still be spinning
could be a hydraulic clutch master cylinder with a compensating port fault or a spigot bush in the flywheel dry and sticking on the input shaft the stuttering could be ignition related (coil failing , or HT leads ) or a blockage in the fuel supply ( check vent in the tank or correct tank cap)
check float level in the carby as well as too low and on a hill will produce a situation where there is not enough to completely supply the main jet
giving it extra fuel opens up a accelerator pump circuit or power valve in the carby and that will rob the fuel supply to the main jet
now for the transmission-- any faults will show up as noise in particular gears , metal fragment on the drain plug magnet, jumping out of gear , especially 4th gear which connects the input and out put shafts and any bearing failures will allow the shafts to mis-align and walk the gear out of mesh so if you have non of these symptoms , forget rebuilding the transmission

The last 2 weeks when i would hit the gas the engine would rev up and then it would catch after about 2 seconds and go. Last night i heard a loud grinding noise, almost as if my muffler had fallen and was...

Your description sounds much like a problem my son had with his Jeep. If the transmission and engine have ever been separated, there is a good chance that two very hard to reach bolts which hold the tranny and engine together at the flange of the bell housing were never tightened properly. With even normal driving (his isn't), the other bolts can loosen and eventually the angle between the two assemblies becomes too steep to function properly and the input shaft to the transmission can fail.
With a good light, inspect the rear of the engine where it meets the bell housing to see if there is any visible crack between the two. If you can see anything like space there, you may have some expensive repairs ahead.

Loud noise if i hit the gas to hard in reverse

If it is like a grinding noise same thing happened to my car I took it in and told the dealer it was doing that and they took the pan in transmission down and metal was everywhere a gear was shearing off. If you hate your dealer take it to aamco or midas or monroe and have do a fee inspection.
Good Luck

My 2001 Chrysler Voyager shifts into neutral while driving

I doubt you going to get a code from the transmission. Im surprised that shop you have it taken to cant tell you what is the problems. If you have high miles as 100k chances are the tranny is worned and need service or replacing. Transmission rearly grind or make a grinding noise, the brakes will make the grinding noise due to the worned pad as metal rubbing on metal, have all breaks check. If the van is 5speed, yes I can see the tranny will make a grinding noise VS automatic transmission. I would take it to another shop and get another opinion or take it to the dealer which they usually charge 70-75 buck to have it diagnose. If tranny need replacing check ebay to junk yard, is lot cheaper and as good than having it rebuilt.

Harsh grinding noise while in gear and car won't drive!

Had the exact same thing in my 93 and it was the CV Axles - they have a C clip that hold them in place - sometimes the C clip and fail; sometimes you simply have to replace the CV Axles - much cheaper then a tranny; a good suspension shop should be able to diagnos w/o it costing you an arm and a leg.

Possible Tranny problem...

I am sorry to have to tell you this but it sounds to me like your transmission is shot and will need a rebuild. If you can get it to a transmission shop they will tell you 100% what wrong with it. .

Sheift lock

The term "shift lock" is the system that is in place to prevent the vehicle from being shifted out of Park into Reverse or Drive WITHOUT having the driver's foot firmly on the brake pedal. The brake light switch on the brake pedal closes a circuit that energizes a solenoid under the shifter. When the brake is applied, and the solenoid is energized, the shift lever is no longer "locked", and can be moved to the desired position.
The idea here stems from a phenonomon several years ago that dealt with the issue of "Sudden Intended Acceleration". What was happening here was, for some unknown reason, engines started developing high RPMS for no reason, and several accisents were reported due to this issue. The vehicle would accelerate "unintendedly", when putting into drive or reverse, and could hit something.
