I'm lookin' for some advice about a transmission problem that put my car out of service tonight. On my way home from work tonight my car popped out of gear(permanitely) after a stop at a light. After pushing it into a parking lot it would grind in every setting(automatic tranny), even neutral. Do I need to replace the tranny, or is it something smaller? Thanx for any input.

Is the D4 indicator lamp ON, indicating a stored code?

From the HELM, Page 14-76 1992 Cpe Manual: Engine runs, but vehicle does not move in any gear: Shift cable broken/out of adjustment; Oil pump worn or binding; Pressure regulator stuck; ATF strainer clogged; Final gears worn/damaged; Extension shaft worn.

Noise from Trans in all selector lever positons:
Oil pump worn/binding; Torque converter defective.

What kind of grind?

If you can put your car in gear and actually push the car (with the brakes off) it's your differential...you'd know also by the kind of grinding noise. You'll have a very high pitched grind that's present from the time you turn the car on, even in park and neutral, basically your transmission is getting no resistance from the differential and is spinning. If this is the case you'll need a new differential and it wouldn't be a bad idea for a new transmission.
