2000 Monte Carlo Banging noise

hi everyone i am new to these forums just wanted to say hi to all but i own a 2000 Monte Carlo SS i love the car to death havent had to many problems untill recently i have noticed that under hard acceleration,braking and shifting it into gear it makes a clunk noise it doesnt sound like the tranny almost like there is a broke engine mount somewhere ive jacked it up and looked at every possible spot and everything looks clean and attached. I am curious if anyone has any ideas? Any help would be appreciated

Hello,And welcome to the forum!! I would have an assistant sit in the car with engine running,And foot on the brake while shifting out of parking gear.Look at the engine and see if it is rocking back and fourth alot.No need to give car any throttle,If you have a bad engine mount,You can find out doing this simple test.Good luck,Let me know what you find out.Diesel 1962

Ok i did what u suggested and engine moves a little and u can not hear the clunking noise outside the car,see the main problem here is its not consistant doesnt do it all the time,but when it does do it its either under hard acceleration,braking,or shifting and i just remembered as i was typing this that i can make it do it almost everytime when i manually downshift from 3rd to 2nd gear i forgot about that. Does anyone have any other ideas its driving me crazy,my uncle said to just turn the radio up louder so i cant hear it ahahaah but my car is my baby and anything remotely wrong with it bothers me! Any and all suggestions are welcome!

Have you thought about a bad CV joint?

yes heres why i dont think its that is bc its not consistant w/the noise if it was a bad cv joint it would do it evertime and it doesnt. Like today for instance i was backing up and put the car in drive and started to move forward pushed the gas and it did it and it sounded like it came from the rear like possibly a loose strut or somethin but ive cked all that and everythings fine i have not taken it to the dealer yet i wanted to see if i could get a consistant pattern and havent been able to.

Hello,Maby it could be the exhaust system banging on the floor of the car.Check and see if you have any missing rubber exhaust mounts. Have a good day..Diesel 1962

Re: 2000 Monte Carlo Banging noise

These cars have issues with the intermediate steering shaft and the subframe insulators. If all your front suspension, tie rods, and motor mounts, and subframe insulators are good the problem is probably in the intermediate steering shaft. The problem is called a slip stick condition. The only real solution is to replace the shaft. You should be able to purchase it from the dealer for less than $100.
