I have a 96 grand am with a 2.4 and a 5 speed manual transmission.
The car won't move when you let out the clutch, but it makes a noise
that changes with the gear range you have selected. I think the
problem might be in the differential. Must I replace the whole
transaxle or can I just fix the differential? Will transaxles from
any other cars fit this application? Thanks!

Someone might correct me on this, but I think if I remember that if you
completely shell out one of your cv joints on a front wheel drive car, you
get this same symptom. I.E. all the power goes to the wheel that has become
disconnected due to a total failure of the cv joint and the car won't move.
Then again it could be something internal to the transmission/differential.
I've had 2 5-speed Grand Ams an 88 and a 96. The kids knocked a hole in the
one on the 88 after 250k miles. The manual trans axles are virtually
impossible to find.
