Its possible that your transmissions Shift Solonoids could be acting erratically, either because they themselves are faulty, or the transmission's ECU is faulty, or maybe even the wiring between the two is somewhat faulty.
However it is also possible that your transmission's Speed Governor is holding too much pressure and doesn't realize it needs to downshift when you start slowing down.
Thirdly it is also possible that your Torque-Converter lockup may be siezed, or the wiring feeding it may be faulty.
Transmission repairs are usually somewhat pricey, and difficult to pinpoint, and fix, and I'm sorry to say that most of these causes to your problem really can't be checked without pulling the transmission out of the car, and disassembling it to see what the problem is.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

SOURCE: grinding noise
I believe what you're saying is that after your car has been in park and you put it in gear to drive it makes a grinding noise for about 30 miles. I recommend checking you transmission fluid level and adding fluid as needed. You should do this fluid check while the engine is warm and car is idling. Since you have an 88 you probably have a lot of miles on it. I've had very good luck using Slick 50 High Mileage Automatic Transmission Treatment. A bottle of this costs around $15. If none of this works it may be time to take it into the shop or trade it in.
