    Clunking in Manual Transmission

    I have began noticing a clunking in my trans (6-speed) when I shift. When i push the clutch in and then go to pull to the next gear a hear a little clunk underneath me as well as feel a thump underneath my right foot. The sound is not a grinding of any sort and yes the clutch is in all the way. The sound occurs before I even begin letting out of the clutch or get back on the accelerator. The thump occurs simultaneously with the movement of the shifter. The sound is much louder than your typical shifter noises. I've been driving stick for 5 years now and have never had this sort of occurrence. Anyone experience this before or have any idea of what is going on? I'm going in this weekend for an oil change and am going to bring this up to my service guys. This is my first new car and having this begin is quite frustrating

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    Clunking in Manual Transmission

    I'm not sure, but the thought is it may be the rear motor mount allowing movement. Another member bought a much better made mount and the tranny movement is virtually gone. I have the clunk too so I'm gonna buy the mount. Good luck.

    Same here I actually took my Dart in and the service tech said it was normal and his did the same thing. He was driving like an old lady so I switched seats and showed him what I was talking about and he still said it sounded normal....Shitty service

    I will keep you guys updated and ryan keep me updated on whether the mount fixes it. I will most likely be upgrading that as well in the near future.

    I have the DR rear mount installed and any abnormal shifting / missed shifts / noises are going. the mount is a great thing to have. the other good thing about it is that its not classified as a solid mount so it still absorbs the movement but doesn't transfer really any vibs.

    I assume you mean GONE not GOING? I was going to get the solid mount since I live in a warm climate.

    yes I do mean gone. I live in mass and I got the 'firm' hardness. the only time I have any vibs is when I have the back system on at idle. even then they are minimal.
