How do I make sure its not in neutral

Actuator won't do this. Sounds like your trans just capped out or the chain in the transfer case broke. Your gonna have to pinpoint where the noise is coming from.


It only has 128k on it and only grinds when putting into park.

Sounds like the tranny linkages have come loose, broke, are bent, or got moved, causing all your problems.
