What makes a clutch judder?

Clutch Judder is caused by the clutch components and flywheel not meeting concentrically. The friction surfaces rub concentrically causing a low frequency vibration that is transmitted to the car via the engine/gearbox mountings and drive shafts. Causes can be 1) Mis-aligned clutch 2) Clutch wear/broken 'finger' springs 3) Condensation on the flywheel (usually happens on colder nights in which case judder should only last until the condensation has evaporated) 4) Contamination on the clutch such as oil from a leaking gland. Case 1 will require the clutch to be re-aligned Case 2 will require a new clutch Case 3 may happen frequently on colder mornings, but judder will disappear 5 mins into driving. Case 4 Replacement of the clutch plates Driving continuously with judder may cause damage/increase wear to engine and/or gearbox components. If judder persists take your vehicle to a garage as soon as possible.

Can a bad motor mount cause problems with transmission?

Of course it can. It depends on how worn the mount is and how far the engine is lifting on acceleration. It can cause hard shifting, clunking. Not to mention it can damage your hood if the engine torques enough to leave the mount and strike the hood. Motor mounts should be repaired as soon as possible.

What would cause a clunking noise after coming to a stop?

If there is a clunking noise coming from the front of your car or truck, it could very well be the rotors. When rotors get worn, the warning sign is the clunk. It lets you know it's time to replace the rotors. If the noise is from engine compartment, listen for valve knock or sticky valve lifters or rocker arms at the valve covers. At the lower end of the engine, where the lowest pulley is, listen for water pump and main bearing clicks. On the alternator, listen for bearing failure. All components should emit a faint whir or rotation noise when working properly.
