It sounds like your spigot bearing has either collapsed or Seized. This is a small bearing that sits in the flywheel and has the primary shaft of your gearbox running in it. when you press the clutch this stops the drive to the primary shaft and it spins free in the spigot bearing, if this bearing in Seized then it will keep spinning the shaft and hence you get your grinding noise, it's like putting it into gear without putting your foot on the clutch. The reason you only get it in first and reverse is because these are the only two gears you select while stationary, try putting it into second gear and if you still have the same problem then it's your spigot bearing. If not then it will be you Synchromesh, your bulk rings will be worn and this will require a gearbox overhaul. Either way your gearbox will need to be removed, asked them to change the clutch while it's off because this is good practice to do if you are removing the gearbox.

Transmission problem on 95 cutlass ciera


Overdrive has two important factors involving when and if it turns on besides being in the proper gear shift position. One is tthe car has to FIRST reach operating temps before it will engage the TCC ( torque converter clutch ). That could involve a faulty thermostat, or short distance drives, Second important factor WILL DISENGAGE WHEN STEPPING ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. A brake switch could be misadjusted , and without you stepping on the brake, the computer thinks you are and wont engage TCC. Hope this helps.

Hello;
It definetly sounds like a vacuum leak problem. The vacuum hoses are routed to perform various functions for the engine and transmission. They can be very difficult to track down. They are small diameter black hoses and start at the intake manifold (the source) and go to their respective locations.
They could be cracked, oil soaked, loose fitting, or disconnected to name a few problems to look for. Take it to a mechanic if you do not feel comfortable replacing the hoses.
Thanks;
