Good Evening my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to assist you this evening. Does the issue still happen when the clutch is pushed in and you are trying to stop??? The noise could be transmission or differential but lets try to narrow it down by getting some answers to some questions as we go along. Roy
Hi Roy no it does not do it when clutch is pushed in thanks steve
If it does not do it with the clutch depressed, then I doubt it is the differential.
It sounds like the clunking may be a motor mount worn out or broken but the hopping is the the other issue. Does the trans shift smooth throuhg all the gears??
Hi roy yes trans is very smooth through all the gears.But i will check motor mount i can create the clunking when car is jacked up by moving rear wheels sharply backwards and forwards either in gear or out thanks steve.
Let me know what you find. Please hit the smiley button so I get credit for my answers. Roy
Hi roy motor mounts ok have u got any other suggestions thanks steve
the noise may be inside the transmission. Did you have anyone drive it to help with the diag?? Is the motor running ok for the hopping??
Hi roy motor running good .Yes had some one drive it it sounds the hopping and clunking when comming to a stop is in the rear or diff thanks steve
Ok, new info. Did they remove the cover and inspect?? If that is the case, it could be a chipped gear on the ring and pinion or a spider gear. Roy
no cover has not been removed yet.I have been told that there should b half a gear movment in diff there is more
Thats a bit much. But the story will be told when the rear is opened up and inspected. Dont forget to hit the smiley button so I get credit for my answers. Have a good day Roy
