Two days ago one of the machinists told me they change 1 of 3. How i lern the truth.

I was driving down the interstate and without any warning started hearing a loud meteal to metal grinding and lost power to the wheels. The engine seems to be fine, starts okay and revs okay. Put it in gear and I get the grinding. Had to be towed home. The car free rolls now (park doesn't hold the car) so I have to use the parking brake. Trying to get an idea if this is a common issue that is repairable or if the Transmission is more than likely trashed. Also, I replaced the front axles about 19 months ago with no issues.

i have e92 335i 2008, recently i had a water leaking from the headgasket,a
week after replacing the headgasket, everything was fine until i opened the
oil filler to see theres water in it, now im thinking that the headgasket is not
installed properly or the head itself have crack or something, the garage
told me that the head was already checked and its in perfect condition and
the headgasket is new and cannot be misinstalled.
he is telling me that it could be the oil housing is leaking from inside , not
the oil filter housing gasket or the headgasket.
can anyone explain what could it be ?
