1996 jaguar xj6 starter engages while driving

I have a problem with my 1996 jaguar xj6, whenever the car is at a stop sign or put into reverse there is a load noise that sounds like the starter is grinding. It happens ever time the car is moving slow.

Car will go in reverse and drive but will not lock when in park you put it in park but it continues to roll

there is a pin in the transmission that holds it in place when park is engaged, there is a possibility that the pin is damaged therefore there is nothing to lock it.

I just had my starter replaced on my 85 Jaguar XJ6 and sometimes when i go to start it, it makes that sound like when you turn the key and the car is already started and sometimes the starter wont engage...

either the starter is not engaging all the way or there is a bad spot on the ring gear, remove the starter and turn the engine and check the ring gear if its good then look at the starter
