    Crap, what did I do to my TA??

    Here is the situation, I had 2 fat asses in my car. 1 weighs 245 1 weighs 235 and they helped my car to bottom out on a mountain road. Immediately after everytime I come to a COMPLETE stop and start from first gear I her a clunk/grind sound from underneath me and the passenger.` IT last for about a full second, only at the beginning of first gear, not any other gear. No whine or howl or clunk noises while driving, and fropm all acoounts it sounds like it is coming from under me and/or the passenger

    Guys, it's not the trannymount. After further examination(driving it around the block 35 times) it seems to be a problem with the clutch. Here is the deal. When I let it out of first realll slow and let the car slowly start I get no sound. When I hold the clutch a little and release it makes the grind/clunk sound. When I REALLY hold the clutch at about 3/4 and give her gas and release it clunks and grinds pretty good the whole time. Most of the noise is from under me. Car has 01-02 master slave and cylinder and had a LS7/LS2 clutch combo installed last year about 10k miles ago.......any ideas now??

    check your slip yolk at the trans. we get alot of vehicles that do that and they just need to be lubed. it might not be that easy but it can clunk around if it is loose on the output shaft

    That's exactly where it mounts... It bolts to the front of the rear & comes up beside the drive shaft. It has a mount at the tail of the transmission. ( rubber mount ) It might have popped out of the rubber and hitting the floor board.

    I've seen it at the track before... The grinding is the pavement, & the bang is the floor boards. ( not mine !!! )

    great now the car won't start, well it starts but immediately sputters while I'm holding in the clutch and dies out. If I start and let the clutch all the way out it dies. Lots of gas smell too, I have an ORY but it seems to be more gas smell than normal. Turn the key, sputter sputter tries to get going and dies....WTF???
