Accidentally Put car in "park" while driving !

Hey guys, I need some help. I accidentally put my automatic car in parking gear while driving about 10 miles an hour, and it made this horrible grinding sound. I got worried that something might have gotten damaged. Did anything get damaged?

I doubt it aslong as you didnt leave it in park and carry on driving, it's just the cogs grinding a bit

yes, your car is now ruined completely, and taking the car to a mechanic will definately NOT help

I dunno, probably your parking brake.

I'd get it checked out.

To test it, put your car in Park while stopped on hill. If your car rolls away, your parking brake is ****ed.

I've driven like 100 feet with my E-brake on and nothing happened though.

I don't know.

You could have broken a pin in your transmission, but if your park and all your gears still work you're fine, which you probably will be. Generally a car can take that kinda damage a couple times before causing serious damage.

But your car is either old or really ****ty, because you shouldn't be able to put your car in park without your foot pressing the break all the way down.

Maybe.

You might have damaged the parking pawl. That's a lever that fits into grooves on the outside of the last planetary of your transmission. You'll know, if you put you car in park on a hill, and it doesn't hold.

The only other possible damage would be if any grindings get carried in the transmission fluid into the valve body. That would prevent the transmission from shifting normally.

Even if you snapped off the end of the parking pawl, or ruined the notches in the outside of the planetary, it won't affect other functions of the transmission operation.

Verrry true, sir Get a manual. Automatics are glorified dodgems. The automotive equivalent of the Gibson SG (Small Genitalia).

TS, I doubt there's too much damage, but if it feels like there's something wrong, take it to a professional to get it checked out.

Thats bad, let me tell you that. Shifting the car into park while moving can ruin your transmission. Does the car run fine, no noises comming from the transmission when it shifts or anything. Find a hill and park it on it, don't put the e-brake on, just park. If it rolls, then something is wrong, if not then it is most likely fine, just next time wait until you have come to a complete stop before putting the car into park. Ive heard of and seen many cars that have had that done to it and the car rolls in park. There is only a small pin that is preventing the gears from moving and it can break pretty easily. Eventhough that little pin costs only a couple of cents it will cost a whole lot more to rip appart your transmission and fix it.
