clunking noise?

so i hear this clunking noise everytime i start moving from first gear.
it sounds like its coming from somewhere close to the pedals.
I'm guessing that it could be a broken motor mount or something?
Any ideas of what it might actually be?

Keep in mind I bottomed out like a month ago and just recently (really ****ty roads here).
If it helps, I might be able to get a recording of this clunking. TIA

Have you checked all of the heat shields under the car, you might have bent one up against part of the exhaust and that is what is making that noise??? Just a thought! =)

Does it sort of happen when you don't give enough gas? Are you running a stock clutch?

I have a clunking as well and I have a stock clutch. Basically as I am letting off the clutch and applying gas, if I don't apply enough gas, I hear a clunk. This clunk sounds like a torquing motion from the transmission. I don't know if it is the transmission or either the transmission mount or the rear motor mount. I haven't brought it into a shop to diagnose it yet.

As I said, this only happens if I don't give enough gas. All other times, it would be fine.

just something to look into.

Haven't checked the heat shields yet, but I'll check them when I jack up my car to switch my rims.

I'm still on a stock clutch. I think the clunk does happen if I dont apply enough gas. Either that or it gets drowned out if I rev too much. I'll double check later on tonight.

What did it turn out to be, Vic?
