Trans- grind, pop; need help!
Driving home up a gentle slope, in 3rd I hear a grinding and pop then I immediately put the clutch in and roll to the side of the road. The tranny won't go into first, it will go into 2,4,and R however it just bogs the engine down and I don't move when I try to let the clutch out. So I put it into neutral and let the clutch out... whoa, I started moving again, it seems that it is stuck in first gear when in neutral, and that is the only way to make it move. It was a slow and silent drive home (1 mile) with my fuming wife in the passenger seat, it was her first real ride in it since I got it two weeks ago.
Can any one can help me figure this out, I don't know much about transmissions, but I guess I will soon. Any ideas what needs fixing, etc?
Oh yeah, it's an 82 Scrambler with 258, T4, 300, 160k miles
Thanks in advance,
