The engine & transmission mounts both are fine.
The clunking noise only happens when accelerating from stop, none on reversing backing up shift.
I recently had a job done, perhaps the exhaust flange gasket is damaged or missing, it has never been
replaced, though. Will this cause extensive damage, if left for awhile. Thanks.
