tranny making grinding noise when cold!!!!

my 90 legend makes a grinding noise in first 3 gears when i first start driving, after i drive 30 miles or so on highway it seems to shift just firne. i have cleaned out seloniods & flushed tranny several times. i just flushed it again & filled it with some atfZ-1(no cheap) but i still have the same grinding when i first start driving,, Can i get some suggestions on how to fix or is tranny gone: should i just drive till the wheels fall off!!!

Just a thought, but that seems to me possibly not be transmission noise. How are your brakes, axles, and wheel bearings?

Check trans mounts. I'm sure they are going bad may want to fill with Polly that's what we do.

Just a few of my JDM pieces! I'm moding my sedan after the Alpha and the Alpha Touring Honda Legends but with a custom twist to it!
