A bad transmission. The sound is from metal grinding on eachother.

Your question is too broad. Expand on it a bit. When does it make the grinding nose, right after startup, after it's been running a hile, etc. where does the noise seem to originate from?

I would guess that it is the wheel bearing. is it a grumbling sound or an all out grinding? If it is or was a grumbling sound and has turned into a grinding it is probably the wheel bearing.

A lot of times the grinding sound that is heard when going over bumps is actually the car scraping the cement. If it is not a serious problem then the best thing to do would be to drive slow over the bumps.
