    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.
