You most likely have a serious gearbox problem.
To minimise further damage don't drive it until the problem is rectified.
Get a mechanic to assess the problem - you may need a replacement gearbox.

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.

Sometimes the starter needs a shim installed to help this problem. If there was not a grinding noise with old starter you should be able to install a shim,these shims you can get at your auto parts store. they come in several thicknesses, most times you get 2 or 3 different thicknesses in a pack. Start with the thinner one and loosen the two starter bolts 3 to 4 turns then remove bolt furthest from engine , shim will slide in and slot at end should stradle bolt, align hole at other end and install other bolt and retighten bolts. test starter for noise,if noise is gone your done, if not try next thicker shim till noise is gone sometimes damage to the teeth on the flywheel can cause this noise but try the shims first. Good Luck!

The trunk of our volkswagon jetta 2006 won't close.

hi this could mean that the slam bar has moved a bit away from the latch, what you will need to do, is locate the slam bar ( its the thing that sticks up normally goldy colour ) either side there are normally 2 hex bolts or star bolts, check to see if they are loose, if they have, tap the slam bar towards the rear of the car so it moves in that direction ( will not move allot ) when done, tighten the bolts and try it, if still no joy, just repeat the process till it does, NOTE some slam bars have a lock nut at the bottom of them instead of the hex bolts, check to see if you have that type before starting, obviously you will need a wrench/spanner to fit it and the hex nuts if you have them..hope this helps please vote thanks
