You are probably right. It is more than likely the motor mount. You can open the hood and power brake the engine and have someone watch the motor and see if it comes up. Motor mounts are not real hard to change. Just jack up the engine on that side and change them. You can get one at a salvage yard real cheap.

Clunk when coming to a stop

That clunking noise you get it whilst you are braking or just as you are coming. If it is whilst on breaking,check your rear brakes. if is whilst coming check for any suspension shocks,bushes.

2005 vue 2.2 stick makes a slap or clunk sound when fast acceleration or quick stop,

because of the torque on manual transmissions, especially when driving hard, they can wear out the motor mounts. The rubber is only meant for everyday driving. If you are trying to race it, I suggest upgrading your motor mounts to a urethane motor mount for more engine stability. Now because they are stronger and stiffer, you will get more engine vibration in the cabin. Excessive engine movement can cause damage to parts over time. Now if you don't have a cherry picker to stablize your engine while replacing the mounts, a jack w/ a block of wood under the oil pan will relive pressure so you can change out one mount at a time.

Right front clunking noise

It sounds like the CV joints are going bad on the passenger side drive shaft. Make sure none of the obvious like ball joints, struts, springs, and any other suspension parts aren't loose or broken. More than likely its the CV joints, but if you do one side, might as well do the other. (an ounce of prevention saves a major headache later)

I recently had 2 motor mounts on my 2005 dodge neon replaced. After I got my car back, I noticed it was making a weird noise, can't quite describe it, just knew that I hadn't heard it before. Then...

I also had my engine mounts replaced on my 2005 Dodge Neon. I have the same sound going on right now. When I spoke to a Auto Parts guy, he looked at it and said it was my tension-er pulley, and that when it runs out of grease it is a screeching noise and will be metal on metal. If you are looking at the front side of your car at the hood. It is the belt and pulley's that are on the left of the engine. (other side of battery). The tension-er pulley is the almost triangle looking piece located behind the back side of the belt.

They belt not being tight enough could also be why when I start my car, it seems to be rough starting.

I plan on getting this fixed ASAP. Perhaps your's went out and is now why the difficult steering.

I know this is not a solution, but it might help.

Squeking sound and loud clunking sound when i accelerate the gas pedal. sounds like it's coming from the front driver side wheel.

not enough info for diagnosis, Try putting bar soap and check tension of fanbelts for squeaking noise of the belts as a cause. The clunk maybe worn or damaged suspension components, cv joints or even worn or broken motor mounts. Start with these items...

There is a growling noise in the front end in front of the driver only occurs when pushing on gas petal

Sounds like a possible motor mount loose or broken, but hard to say.
Quick test:
Open hood, put car in drive, hold foot tight on brake pedal don't let off the brakes, accelerate slightly, if the mount is broken engine should lift up on the right side looking out the drivers side windshield, and show signs of the fan blades hitting the black plastic fan shroud in front of the radiator.
A car lift is the easiest and safest way to gain access for replacement of a broken engine mount.

start be looking for broken motor mounts if there broken this can happen look for rips and tares in the rubber in side the mounts you may need to put the car in the air to check the rear mount. if you find one that is broken replace it and see if that solves your clunk.

Have a clunking sound when i take off quickly

could be a loose/broken motor mount.  Motor mounts are fairly cheap as far as the part.  If you have some mechanical experience, you could change them yourself.  Other than that, I would check the driveshafts.  They could be worn.  Grab them and try to move them with your hand back and forth.  if they move or click, time to replace them.

When i put it in reverse it makes a loud clunk

Hi Ali,

This sounds like one or more of your motor/powerplant mounts is broken. Here is an easy test:

Have someone sit in the driver's sear with engine running and trans. in Park.
You stand in front with the hood open. Have them shift from Park to Reverse, and then Drive and back to Reverse and Park, taking time to stay in each gear and give some throttle while holding the brake pedal tight. This will rock or move the engine a certain amount as they shift through the gears and apply power lightly. It will move alot more violently with broken mounts.

If you have a clunking noise on Reverse shifts, you should be able reproduce this with the hood up and pinpoint the noise and/or sight the faulty motor mount with a friend's help. Good luck, I hope this puts you on the right track to fixing this annoying noise.

Sincerely, Tater Todd
