Exclamation 2002 V6 Mustang Transmission Grinding in Extreme Cold

Well it's -19 and about -35 or so with wind chill. Mostly all winter my car has been making a grindy noise when I decelerate(grinding happens mostly when the car is very slow while braking near a stop). For the longest time I was thinking maybe it's something lose in the front, maybe my licence plate flapping. Today though it's really really cold. Putting the car from D to N just to see and wow, it's grinding on neutral. Did not go away after a 35 minute driver home from work as well. I get a strong feeling it is the transmission. My stang has 310 000KMs on it so it's not new. But I also can't afford any repairs at the moment. I hope I only need fluid change or something.

Please someone knowledgeable help me. Thanks guys.

This is because of the friction which is generated all around the axle. In winters this is a common issue to be faces in automobiles. I think you might wanna use a quality lubricant to avoid this problem.

I just don't understand why it goes louder when I put the car in neutral and reverse. Automatic btw. Seems to be the transmission. I hope not.
