I believe it's my rear motor mount, cause every time i downshift from 3rd to 2nd, it clunks. Probably loose or just a mount gone bad from me driving it like a honda lol.

Anyways, I did check it with the motor off, and it in 3rd gear. I got under the hood, rocked the car back and fourth, and it clunked everytime the car rocked backwards. It's not a hard mount to change. You guys think it could be that or something else?

The motor itself doesn't rock when I grab ahold of it and shake it. It stays in place perfectly, so idk.

Probably is a motor mount. Can you feel the engine tourque up and it feels like it's hitting something...or does that car shake at all?

All it does is when I down shift, and the rpms rise, and start to level off and drop, it'll clunk.
Like, as soon as the clutch is all the way out, it'll clunk once. So, idk. I'll probably have to wait til it gets worse to be able to identify it.

check to make sure the drivers side mount is tight, sometimes the nuts can come loose and the motor hangs low, and/or the front motor mount is broken. either or both of which can cause the a/c compressor to hit the front subframe when downshifting.

while you have it out you might as well fill it with some poly!

Awesome, dude, that makes sense. I'll check all the mounts. I doubt its the tranny mount on passanger side, but i'll check it as well. I'll reply back to this tonight with a anwser. Thanks! :)
