Q: Transmission grinding when in gear.

asked by on

The car grinds when I put it into drive or reverse.

Differential failure is a likely cause of this symptom. A faulty CV axle or transmission failure are also likely causes. I would recommend having your transmission and differential inspected by a professional to ensure all parts are working correctly.
