The clutch may need to be adjusted or replaced, as it sounds like it is not completely releasing. That can also cause the "Clunk" as everything tightens up when trying to find a gear. Although, the clunk is most likely caused by a worn U-Joint. Try to adjust the clutch first.

Transmission clunks in reverse! I took it to local service station and they had no idea what was happening! We blew a fuse prior was wondering if that had anything to do with it


Do you mean clunks when put in reverse and the vehicle is rear wheel drive, the problem could be the connection between drive shaft and transmission. Don't remember the name of the piece these have a wear issue.

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

Manual transmission reverse is blocked


Hi Mitch, If when engaging first gear you have a grinding and clunk try pumping the clutch pedal before engaging reverse. My reason for saying that is that if the pedal takes low to the floor you may have a defective hydrolic clutch line. If it doesn't work I think I would suspect a bent selector rod. Regards John

Fiesta started making noises either gearbox or clutch? clunks going in to reverse, shudders driving off in 1st gear


sounds like your clutch is going out, is it hard to put in gear with clutch all the way depressed? could also be the sinkronyzer going out, could be the gears in the transmission also going bad. need to check the fluid in the transmission.
