Ive never been afraid of driving until now...
something is seriously wrong with my bird. It makes this gunshot/punching bag/hiccup/metal on metal bang/ sound that is making me afraid to drive her.
One sound sounds like its coming right from the transmission tunnel. Checked the fluids since it barked in the 1-2 shift so hard, it squealed the tires, level was fine. Another sound seems to be a mover as its coming (and first heard from) the driver front tire. Checked the ball joint and tie rod. Looked ok, nothing hanging or not tight. (car on ground for these checks with wheels turned out) Third noise is a replica of the bang from the driver front but sometimes comes from right underneath me.
Also makes said clunk during sharp radius turns, like getting into parking spots, turnarounds in cule-de-sacs etc.
any ideas, solutions, or anyone around the carbondale area that might know whats up, please let me know. Im a tad hestant to take it to a shop here, never have had to in 3 years.
thanks in advance
