    question

    Question: i had the rear end of the ground and put the car in drive to check for noise. The car was just at idle and it said it was doing about 15 mph. If I just shift from drive to park with using my brakes to stop the wheels from moving, will it cause any damage to the tranny?

    Stupid me forgot to hit the brakes and did it. I heard the gear grinding noise for like 1 sec. The car drives fines. I'm just wondering if is possible to damge something at that low speed. Thanks

    Not something you want to do on a regular basis... looks like you have that figured out though. There is a parking pawl that engages a notch in the transmission's rotating assembly. The grinding you heard was probably the pawl rubbing against the drum until it engaged. Probably no serious harm done, but I am by no means a transmission expert.

    ^^^Jeff is right. No damage was done, just don't do that any more

    the grinding noise was actually from drive to reverse but I think is fine as long and I don't have a brainfart and do it again. Thanks.
