Recently, the trans started to clunk but only coming out of park to reverse. It won't clunk in drive, and the fluid is fine.
I've checked the fluid every weekend since I've bought the car (Oct), along with other fluid levels. The previous owner was an older gentleman that took the car in for any rattle, or noise that the car made. I am guessing that the trans fluid and filter probably need to be changed. The car only has 72k on it. I don't race the car, but I also don't drive it grandpa style either (it gets romped on once in a while, and going on the on-ramp to a busy highway in the morning.
There is no temp difference as far as if it is 40 degrees out, or 118 out. The trans will clunk 9 out of 10 times from park to reverse. Also doesn't matter if it'* on a flat surface or on a slight grade (we don't have that steep of hills in Phoenix).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
