View Full Version : weird clunk on shutdown

when i turn off my car i hear a knocking sound coming from the engine. almost like something getting hit. it does it cold or warm. i havent noticed any vibrations when it does it. the car got new motor mounts about a year ago and i doubt they're going out. i just want to know if this is something that could be a problem later on.

sounds like a motor mount to me.

What kind of motor mounts did you get, and from where?

I'll bet it's the supercharger.

Or more specifically, the nose-drive-to-gear-fingers have some free-play and when the engine stops it rocks back a bit and you hear a short, single, knock. My XR7 has done that for well over 100,000 miles and so far no issues with the supercharger.

yeah, thats pretty much what mine does.

the motor mounts were replaced with stock mounts by the previous owner and had a shop do the work. the engine is pretty smooth though. no significant vibration.

i'll double check the supercharger thing, but im pretty sure thats it. thanks guys..
