Question about Chevrolet Impala
Nice ride, my brother had one.
This is one of those times when I wish we had sound so I could hear it.
My first thought was the starter not disengaging. But the fact that it sounds fine with out the tranny throws a wrench in that theory.
Even so, it's still the first (cheapest/easiest) thing I'd check.
If the solenoid is disengaging but the gears are not letting go, shims may be required to attain minimum clearance.
If it is not disengaging, the problem is electrical. Run a test light to the 'S' terminal of the starter.Make sure it only comes on when the key is turned to the START position.
Let me know what you find. We'll take it from there
