they put brand new motor mounts on as well. it just makes that slowly down in that one gear. accelaration and shiftning is fine. the noise just occurs when slowly down in that one gear.

OK then they left the bolt loose in one of the transmission mounts.Is it a one time clunk or numerous clunking noises?

ok we have replaced all motor mounts and all the bolts are fine. what do you suggest next? it only shifts hard and makes the clunking sound when coming out of overdrive into drive

Ok then the issue has to be internal in the transmission have they checked that yet?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no they do not really do that. if they know what might need to be replaced they can do it but they cannot really diagnois it. i guess i will have to take it to somebody else. i just thought this might be a common problem on these cars and you might know what it was. thanks

No this will need to be diagnosed correctly hopefully when they installed the engine all the torque converter bolts are tight .Have the transmission checked next .Hoped this helped.Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.Please rate excellent service so I get credit for my help anything lower leaves me negative feedback thanks.
