jherrington That was it. I took your post into consideration too. Thanks!

I know dad had the exhaust manifold replaced years and years ago.. I'm guessing they replaced that portion of the exhaust too.

Now that the wild goose hunt is over with.. *whistling*

That's why I mentioned the exhaust bushing/bracket yesterday. There should be a 1/2" offset rod welded to the exhaust pipe that slides into the rubber bushing on the trans mount offset plate. If that whole assembly is missing then it could very easily bang up against the skid plate. I hope you found the problem.

So, take the starter off and see if I see anything abnormal on the flywheel?

jherrington Still get rattle with clutch in.


Clutch isn't spinning. Transmission isn't spinning. The only thing in there that's moving is the flywheel. If its not that, I'm a seriously confused person then.

tbensor are the bolts on the starter tight?
07-02-2013 09:15 PM
jherrington I think I'm just going to take it to my mechanic. He changed out the clutch last year, so if its one of those parts, it should be under warranty and all I have to do is pay labor.

Unless someone convinces me to not spend upwards of $600 to get whatever it is fixed.

jherrington the bushing is there. Dad must have replaced a piece of exhaust piping because ive never seen the exhaust mounted there.

Again, you can feel the bump. not just hear it.

Is the rubber bushing ok where the exhaust mounts to the trans offset plate.
07-02-2013 07:33 PM
jherrington It doesn't sound bad in the video, but believe me. its a scary sound.

Engine seems to stop a little quicker. I also get a nice pop upon start up.

I haven't really tested this back to back to see if there is a difference, but it still pops no matter if clutch is in or out.

Loud thud after shut off/turn on

For the past few days, when cutting the engine off, I get a loud thud from beneath me. As if someone took a rubber mallet and hit my transmission.

This isn't EVERY time, but 90% of the time. I cannot replicate the thud if I just crank it up and cut it off. I have to have driven somewhere.

Now, for the thud on turn on, it's the same thud and then engine almost hiccups

It's a stick shift. It doesn't sound like its coming from the engine. So, clutch? Flywheel?
