    sloppy noise--

    Hey guys I've got an 05' goat with about 20k miles on it. I've heard a clunky popping noise mostly in 1st thru 3rd gears. The noise usually happens when engaging the accelerator, not just through shifts but also when the car is already in gear. (you can leave it in gear take off the accelerator and then re-engage, not stomping on it). And the popping noise still happens. The hasn't been driven hard by any means, but is still under warranty. Any ideas as to what this noise is? Its driving me freakin nuts!

    Sounds like some loose bolts somewhere in the driveline. Perhaps driveshaft or axle shafts bolts are loose. Get it to the shop immediately before something is damaged severely.
