do you think that the front propeller shaft universal joint could be a source of a problem; my mechanic said it is broken and needs replacing
When universal joints break, the driveshaft will fall down on one end. If the driveshaft is not hanging down, the u joint is not completely broken. The u joints can fail and have a good bit of play in them and make a clunk noise. If the u joint is worn, I would definitely address this first.
