if you broke the shift accumulator the car would lock itself into 2nd gear. been there, done that on the aurora. this isn't somthing that breaks from abuse either. id look more into the mounts. your best bet is to bring it to a dealership and have them tell you whats wrong. is it ALWAYS clunking? or just under certain amounts of gas pressure?

also, post this over at clubgp, since there are TONS more members over there, your car has the same exact transmission as a grand prix gt.

maybe the new ones break more because of the more power? the 3.5dohc is a 215hp engine, the old 3.8 was 170hp. also much higher shiftpoints
