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?
:dontknow:

Maybe motor mounts, or transmission mount.

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

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!

The problem really sounds like the carrier bearings that hold your drive shaft in place. Usually there's 2 of em. That would make the clunk and make it shake at speed. They're kind of a pain in the ass because they are pressed on. But I'm about 90% sure that's your problem. If you get under the car you can look at the carriers and see if rubber part is cracked and worn out. See if you can kind of shake the drive shaft. Does the shaking feel like its in your ass? Like its comin from the rear?

Hmmm. Well by the responses it could be a million things. But I will give a better description when I am off this week. Repair shop said its an exhaust leak, that was awhile back. She said its from the moment the car is on, and while driving it so it is not in any specific gear or anything like that.
