Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
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.
