Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
1998 Pathfinder (automatic transmission) has a bit clunk when changing gears. Letting off on the gas suddenly results in what feels like a sloppy gear change.
Would this be a universal joint issue?
Could be a CV (Constant Velocity) joint, but they usually show as clicking noise when turning at the limits. Possible bad engine/transaxle mounts or bad modulator valve or leaking / disconnected vacuum line to same or manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor. If the transmission is computer controlled, the computer replaces the modulator valve which controls when & how firmly or gently gear changes are made... and, of course, it could just be good old-fashioned wear & tear. A tranny fluid/filter service sometimes works wonders in this area also.
As always, a reputable automotive tech is your best source of what's happening with your problem. Good luck!
