Grinding Noise when shifting from Reverse to Drive

Whenever I shift from Park to Reverse, or to Drive, or Reverse to Drive, etc. (basically any time i move the shift [its an auto]), I am hearing a grinding noise as the gear is put into place. It doesn't happen while I'm driving as it shifts to 2nd, 3rd, and up. It's just when I go between park/reverse/drive while stopped.

I also hear a strange squirting noise that I haven't gotten any leads for yet. It happens when I accelerate, sounds like it's coming from up in the dash someplace or maybe just in front of it. It happens both when the AC is on and when it's off.

Any ideas on these noises?

Whoops, forgot to mention. It's a 95 Laredo, with an I-6. 137k. Don't think it's had any transmission work any time lately.

If its a Buzz noise, and its for exactly 1 second, thats normal. Every chrysler does it. Check another chrysler to re-assure yourself. I worried about it too but I found out it was normal.

Yea it's normal, almost all chrysler and dodges do this. My Jeep and Durango does it. It's some kind of automatic clutch thing in the tranny, for lack of more technical terms.

Ah, okay. I was starting to think it was normal. Yeah, it's a buzzing sound.

... but what about this squirting noise I hear?
