Have the engine and trans mounts checked.
i would make sure that the engine is idling at the right rpm cause to fast of rpm can cause that for sure
bad synco rings
sounds like a motor or transmission mount is your likely problem
YOU WILL FEEL A CLUNK WHEN THE VEHICLE IS PLACED IIN REVERSE OR DRIVE AND IS ACCELERATED WITH THE BRAKES DEPRESSED
They could squeak, rattle, bang , clunk.....
when you change directions from forward to reverse it makes a clunk sound and there is a slit delay in movement.
it could possible be the U-Joint which is a cheap and easy fix. it's connected to your drive shaft.
Pull the rear wheels off and check the brakes. Something may have broken or fell apart.
The first thing that comes to mind if the "clunk" is only on starting is worn or broken motor mounts. Something is moving and allowing things to hit each other. A clunking that is intermittent while running may be a ball or roller bearinng going bad.
You're a clunk-head...
A bad universal joint is one possibility.
it may be the rear tranny mount
If the ticking is in time to wheel speed and most noticeable on turning I would suspect an outer CV joint. An inner axle joint might clunk when shifting into reverse. Maybe they're on the same axle. Other possible causes of clunking are worn-out motor mounts.
Loose universal joint(s) in drive train.
It depends on when you hear the noise, but it likely a joint in the front wheel drive unit.
RWD? Could be a worn Universal Joint. There are infact number of causes for this. The U-joints are the most common cause but can easily identified by visual inspection and feeling for lash in the drive shaft. The next cause down the list is the rear diffirential as the gears ware down the lash will incresse causeing sudden "clank" or "clunk" sound as the car goes from neutrual/park to reverse/drive. Next potential cause is transmission related. Uncommon causes can be a warped or worn out suspention, causeing excessive driveshaft angles.
A bearing that has gone bad. A universal joint that has worn out allows play in the differential gear.
lower control arm bushings are worn also stabilizer pins Had my replaced at about $570.00
you probably need motor and/or transmission mounts
You will feel a definite high speed vibration when driving. And you'll hear a very distinctive "clunk" when shifting from drive to reverse or visa-versa.
Vrrrrrrroommm If the driver puts his foot down. Brrrr-clunk-rrrrr-clunk-rrrrrrrrr With added gear changes.
The rubber isolators in the engine mounts have worn out or the CV joints in the drive shafts are worn out.
could be bad mounts on either the tranny or engine?
One clunk when accelerating (but now repeated clunks) and another when braking can be caused by broken motor mounts.
