What kind of weird noises? Did you check the fluid in the transmission?


Manual or automatic?




A grinding noise that goes away when car warms up


I think you have a problem with the shifter or the shifter linkage.


ok thanks I kinda thought so too


Do you think it might be the shift solenoid
