Car repair question (rattle noise)

My girlfriend has a 2002 Mustang (v6 model). When putting the car into and out of park it makes a harsh grinding/rattle noise. Its almost a clunk sound, but I would like to fix it for her. The car also produces a bit of a shake too.

Obviously it could be a lot of things but is there anything that this car is notorious for?
Exhaust leak?

And yes I have searched the web a bit. I WILL NEVER OWN A FORD lol. I do not know many people who have luck with them, and googling this problem there is a million things on noises and viboration coming from the vehicle, and some of the responses people are like:oh yeah I had this happen on a few of my explorers and other fords lol

Maybe motor mounts, or transmission mount.

Werkes exhaust, Tech spec center and side grip pads, ZG Corsa windscreen, Alien Motion 8 cell battery, Hotbodies smoke undertail, Green decals, Hellsrazor servo fix. More to come.....

I would check engine mounts. I had a similar problem with my car. You could actually see the engine move when shifting. Does reverse give you a similar sound?

i would check the u-joint first you can change the front and rear for about 20$ and less than an hour of work. it will cause a clunk when putting it in and out of gear and will cause a vibration

I will see if I can play with it when she is off to see what gear it does it in and get a better description of the problem.

Best to jack it up and look underneath. Check the u joints, trans and engine mounts, shift linkage, etc.

Pull the torque converter cover and check for loose converter bolts, flexplate damage.

Exhaust or other random loose parts.

Past that, it may be internal to the trans. Is it a 4r70w or an A4ld/4R444?

hey, if she doesn't ask, don't do anything. If me, and she does complain, I'd pretend not to hear her!
