Hi,
Usually a "clunk" when you put it in drive or reverse, might indicate a U-joint needing replaced.
Hope this helps...

Got a 1995 nissan maxima with 179,000 that hesitates or misses.


hello, also check plug wires,distributator, cap and rotor button, you can check plug wires,at knight time, crank engine, with hood up, walk around car, look at plug wires while motor is running, see if any sparks are coming from plug wires, also if it clunks, like you said, you may have broke motor mount, transmission mount, check for air lines leaking also

My 1999 grand prix 3800 v-6 stalls when stopped and hesitates around 2000 rpm


tough one, has many things that could be wrong..to give you some idea...Air filter, a loose air hose, gas filter,oxygen sensors, sparkplugs wires or even crossed wires will all play a role in the hesitation that your car is producing, I have 2 grand prix and one of them is hesitating on me right now, I know its the oxygen sensor but I cant fix it now, dont have the money to. I know it wastes more gas but oh well for now! Try testing first.

Rear end clunk in Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup


The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.
