Default Tranny clunk and tranny slippage nething to worry about look

Well as you alot of you know I am the new owner of a 1995 Ford Contour 2.0l dohc car well the tranny clunks a very minor inbetween gears but when i have it to the floor and its shifts awsome no slipage nor clunking..........It also has a small slippage sometimes from drive to overdrive (turned on by a button) only when i left off alittle to let it shift into overdrive it does that.............also the tranny has a hard clunk when i punch it up to like 35 in 1st then totaly let off the gas completely (with od on). Is this something to really worry about or not (btw its not as bad as u think really)

A clunk could be a bad thing, and/or many bad things. Shift solonoids, worn CV shafts, bad mount, etc. Not a good sign at all.

O ya when we were changing the strut assemblys it took alot of kicking and it really looked like the tranny was moving around alot.....cause the drive shaft was connected when we did that plus its hard to replace it without commpression tools to compress the coils
