I've got a 07 Grand Am SE 3.1l V6 and today when I was going to an appointment my car made a loud noise and wouldn't drive. I immediately shut the car off to avoid a bigger issue, and when I turned the car back on it started up fine, idles fine, but when I shift into Drive, Neutral, or Reverse it will make a loud grinding noise and will not move. There are no visible problems from the engine down or just skimming underneith. The car is in a very bad spot to do any kind of work on it. Waiting for someone to help me move it.

Suspect a hard part failure in trans ie. Like clutch pack or sun gear

Do they often go bad suddenly? I've had absolutely no problems with my transmission since I got the car 2 years ago.
