What could be the cause of the loud knocking when I put my car into reverse?


Asked by May 11, 2016 at 05:22 PM about the 2000 Nissan Altima SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This past weekend I was reversing into my garage, but when  I put my car into
reverse all I heard was a loud grinding noise and it was only moving forward.  
When I put it in park it grinds and then whines and still moves forward.  I also
have to lift the parking brake to keep my car from moving.  I have a 2000
Nissan Altima.  Please help.
