WHATS THE LOUD GRINDING SOUND AS I SHIFT BACK THRU GEARS R-P ?

1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

I have a 1986 Monte Carlo with a 305 engine not sure about the transmission. When the car is started and I have the brakes pressed down and I shift through all the gears ( P-2 ) the car doesnt "jump" into gear. Then when I shift back through the gears ( 2-P ), as I shift through R-P there's a loud grinding sound for about 5-10 seconds or until I turn it off. I've searched numerous of sites for information and cant find it anywhere. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP !

Seems you have a transmission fault and something is loose inside the trans. The parking gears are not holding the gears resulting in the rachetting noise.
