RE: no park noisey grind in reverse
If one of the drive axels failed and is spining you can probably see the outter boot torn up by looking underneath.

Most likely you have a trans failure. I'll explain and you see if it fits your situation.

When you said "drive speed meter" I presume you mean the dash mounted speedometer. If this is still indicating when you put it into gear that means the differential is moving past the sensor but if the wheels are not turning (axels not turning either) the gears inside the differential (side gears / spiders) have failed. In some situations this condition may actually damage the trans case and is an expensive repair.

RE: no park noisey grind in reverse
Just a heads up here....

If they pull the trans out for any sort of major work you might as well do whatever is needed, which means a full overhaul including the more recent up-dates. (there have been a few running changes over the years)

These up-dates will include some sensor changes (better shift quality) and something they call a "case saver" which is a little retainer that keeps the spider gear cross shaft from falling out if the roll pin fails. All of these goodies are small change in the big picture, which is in the $2500 range here in the greater NY area for an independant shop.

For that money you might want to get a quote from a dealer to compare because their factory rebuilt unit will carry a 3 year warranty. (36k miles I believe too) I've installed a few of these factory units and they are no muss, no fuss! OTOH, the core charge (another $300?) is history if the case is damaged so keep that in mind.

Good luck and let us know what they find.
