Terrible shudder and clunking!!

Post by Paul D » Mon Feb 27, 2017 7:04 pm

So I'm out and about on a run last week in my 1967 GT. No problem till I stopped and came to go home Car wouldn't start. Sounded like starter so I did the usual give it. A knock and tried a push start to no avail. So I called RAC. He stuck it in 4th gave it a shove ( he said it was stuck in sycro) anyway an almighty clack was heard and she then turned over with the first turn of the key lovely. Anyway during my run home the clanking got worse as has the shuddering from the back end especially during pick up. What do you reckon??

Does the car shudder/clunk at specific times? i.e when accelerating, cornering, etc or is it just all the time when you're driving?

This could have something to do with the actual transmission of the car - have you had a look at the u-joint?
