Default a4ld scratching? need advice

i have a 93 ranger 4.o 2wd with an a4ld and i noticed that its is starting to scratch when its shifting and even some times making a scratching when in park. i have no skill with a transmission and was wanting to know what you all think is the problem. i did check the fluid and it is full but is probaly in need of a change. my question is what do you think is wrong how could i fix it or how much do you think it will cost to get fixed, or if a simple fluid and filter change hopfuly fix the problem? input is much liked and thanks a head of time

I don't know but my furnace has been acting up. I smacked the side of it.
It's still doing it though. How do I fix it?

How longs it been like that? Scratching in park though I don't follow. Do you mean it makes a scratching sound when you engage into park, or while it's sitting there running?

Like a tinny clattering? How close do you have to be to the truck to hear it and what happens when you rev it or press against the tail pipe?
(not tiny; tinny like tin)
Worn out exhaust mounts, gastank heat sheild, anything that's loose like a fuel line or electrical connection locator, cracked flywheel?
