Hey, everyone! I have another question concerning my '97 Ford Taurus. What would cause the transmission to grind when accelerating after a complete stop?

Planetary gear failure. It is internal from your description. Just to make sure, have your axle shafts checked for noise before considering a transmission removal and overhaul.

Would it be cheaper just to buy a re-built or even new transmission?

Ford reman would be about 2400 just for the trans looking at 8-10 hours labor.
A used one is a crap shoot. These trans do not have a good track record. You might get a good one or you may not. No warranty except 30 days.

Could it be anything other than the transmission?

Have the axles checked as I stated in the original posting.
