Tranny Grind for first 30 secs

CAr Model:
Acura Integra 1992, 1.8 Automatic, non - Vtec

Problem:
- When I turn on engine, shift into [R]everse or [D]rive the tranmission grind, then stop, grind continue again when I begin move the vihicle for about about 15 feet and then the grinding gone completely.

- At stop sign when I come to complete stop there is no grinding when I start again. I tried shifting gears from park to.

Things I did when I found out:
Change tranny oil ( after 4 years me lazy)
Change engine oil after 3 moutnhs

The gears grinding did not stop, What could cause these grinding for the first 10-15 feet and when first shifting into gears from a cold start?

There are several possibilities for this. It could be the park pawl hitting the park gear, the differential inside the transmission case, CV shafts/joints, or any one of the gears itself. Sorry I cant be more specific but I would actually have to hear the noise to be sure. Let a transmission shop look at it. Gear grinding in Acura (Honda) automatics is not a good sign. Be prepared though, if the CV shafts/joints are ok the next step is going to be removal and disassembly of the transmission.
