Akockristo: Let me see if I can help. Engine mounts, when they fail, allow a lot of movement which translates into "Clunking or thumping" noises under initial acceleration.
Here is a test you can do but it will require the help of a friend.
With the car in a safe area, parked. Open the hood and have your friend stand to the side of the car with his or her feet away from getting run over.
You will be in the car and will have the parking brake set and will hold the brake while you put the car in a forward gear. With it in gear apply power while holding the brake and have you friend watch the engine. If the engine jumps or lifts significantly, that will confirm my suspicion that you have a motor mount which as failed..
Now test the car in reverse to see if you have a problem with the opposite mount.
You can have you friend be the driver if you want.
Sometimes if you can find a safe place and a curb the right height, you can also use the curb as another means of blocking the front wheels as you apply power.
The next test would be for checking the axles. Usually if you make sharp turns in a parking lot you will hear a Crack, crack type sound if the CV joints are failing sometimes it can be mistaken for a clunk when in a straight position.
Good luck

While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE


Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.

A clunk noise comes from the rear underside of the differential.


have the drive shaft U-joints checked for excessive wear. if they are ok the differential carrier bearings are worn and allowing to much gear backlash.

1993 sentra jerking problems.


I wanted to just give a suggestion...do you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
