    clicking noise when shifting gears

    just did a tranny swap last week in my atx and now all of a sudden, whenever i put the car into drive, there is a weird clicking noise coming from the front/underneath the car. it also happens when i put it in reverse and then back to drive. It clicks once whenver i move the shifter but when im driving its not there. Any ideas

    that happens on my MTX. I always figured its just your transmission switching gears. and theres a click to it?

    yeah but this click is something ive never heard before, trust me its not normal something has to be rubbing on something or going bad, but what the hell could it be.

    my car started doing this to. I'm thinking its a bad motor mount but i just havent had the chance to have someone shift it into gear while i watch the motor. i'll let you know what i find out..

    1-2 Clutchpack would probably be to blame.

    I think NOT.

    My guess is also the Motor mounts...front and rears were worn pretty good when we did this swap...and his ATX is Brand NEW...

    I had something similar to that. everytime i would put the car into gear it would make a loud tick or sometimes a clunk . turned out to be a bad axle that was ramming into the transmission.
