Default Well it turns out to be a busted front trans mount.....

Busted the darn trans mount,plus a few other need to do small jobs..


Any mechanics that take bi weekly payments... :P


This sucks it has to be parked till I get the scratch up ..plus I need trans and oil pan gaskets,stabilizer links / bushings and the tarns / oil lines that run across the inside front bumper,no wonder I went through a quart of oil already....

If someone here in the cities can help me get this stuff done,I will buy all parts and take some payments on your labor,I am willing tio sign a noterized contract or whatever,don't mean to sound desperate but this could not have happened a worse time cash wise..

I can build / repair / troubleshoot / upgrade your PC(*) in exchange be it full or partial or ?

I have lived on the west side for 12+ yrs and born / raised on the east side and have 2 daughters 17 and 19 so no games from me just graditude...

From what you say, it sounds like you won't be able to diagnose it yourself, so I suggest you get it looked ata as soon as is possible. This is not the type of symptom you want to ignore or playa round with, IMO.

If something is wrong with your suspension (very likely from what you've said), waiting is like begging for trouble.

My opinion.

I agree with Lash. Have it looked at. As well as the suspension parts, ask them to check the bolts that hold the steering rack in place, and to check the mounts that support the engine and transmission, especially those on the rear crossmember.

I agree with the two hosers above. Could be that when you pushed neutral you weren't fully stopped and got a suspension clunk, could be trans...

Have it checked out, when a car makes noises like this..they are warning signs.

I found a friend of a friend who works at the midas down the road so going there to talk to him shortly.

And bill,I always come to a stop before I shift out of drive and the thing is it happened like a full minute after I put it in nuetral so thats what is getting me is there was no stress on eng or trans and it never missed a beat idle wise,strange will update when I figure out what I did ...

Well at this point I am accepting help from whomever ..


Allright well I have a few issues but the main issue is I broke the front trans mount.....

My stabilizer links need replacement as the bushings are toast ..

I also need the *.C. oil changed the front trans lines and oil pan and trans pan as I have some leaking there but not a major thing that has to be done this second but before spring unless I find some kind souls here that work for beer...

So for now it gets parked till I can afford to get it done as xmas cleaned me out last week on payday .....

Accepting help from anyone huh?

I guess our MN guys will qualify then... Good group of Bonnienuts out there. Apparently they haven't visited the 92-99 local guy needs help thread...

I'm on it.!

You're looking at no more than 2 hours of work for 2 people, and about 50 bucks in parts.
