more of a rattling noise? its probably just your shifter linkage rubbing up against your exhaust pipe or something.

I had a similar grinding once and it ended up being a bearing inside the tranny.

Shifter bushings!
if your shifter wobbles all around even when its in gear then yes your going to have to replace the bushings

the wobbles are caused from the shifter bushings. but the grinding is not from that. mine are shot and i dont have a grinding noise.


is it more a rattle than a grind? can you leave it parked, then rev it and hear it?? or just driving in those certain gears (3-4)

most likely the tranny. check the fluid, or better yet flush it out and top her up.
