    03 WRX Whining/Grinding noise when accelerating but mainly decelerating.

    It just started making the noise on the way to work the other day. I tried to take a video of it, pretty bad video but I think you can hear the noise well enough. Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what it could be

    Heres the video link 2003 Subaru WRX whining/grinding tranny noise - YouTube

    Basically only when a gear is engaged. If I'm rolling in neutral its not so bad but as soon as I put it in gear it starts whining..some when accelerating but worse when im just coasting in gear

    Ok, now today I was backing into my parking space and was welcomed by a loud clunk and the car wouldn't move backwards....I didn't push it too hard though. I managed to move it forward about 20 feet after a few clunks and get it parked. It is still shifting fine so I don't think its the tranny. Any ideas? Also anyone know if I tried to drive it somewhere to get it fixed if I could really blow something up?
