It makes this horrible grinding sound when you take off from a stop that can only really be described as metal rubbing on something. It seems to be worse when I really give it the gas but then it goes away as I build up speed and when Im just driving down the road. I just had alot of front end work done. My struts and sway bar links were replaced and the car rides really smooth again. The grinding noise was happening before I had this work done so I know it has nothing to do with that. My cv axels are in good shape so I know thats not it. Everything looks fine under there by the tires but I dont really know what Im looking for. I had my car aligned the other day and I had the mechanic test drive it. He had no idea what the noise could be and said Id have to take it to the dealer to see what it is. Im just hoping somebody here may have some idea as to what Im dealing with here and how badly Im screwed. Please tell me my transmission isnt going out!!
