Acura TL 2005 starts and when you put in Drive or any gear

Customer Question

Acura TL 2005 starts and when you put in Drive or any gear there is a loud grinding sound. Car will not go anywhere and will not go back into park. Need to turn it off and then put it back in park. Can push it while it is in Drive as if it is in neutral.

ok, then this is going to be internal inside the transmission, you most likely broke a planetary gear, or the torque converter has come apart, none the less, the transmission will need to come out and disassembloed to see which one broke,Tim
