When these mounts fail it will allow the engine to rise up when accelerating, and then falling back down on deceleration. Its this falling back into place which produces the clunking sound. To inspect for this condition the car will need to be lifted and the engine mounts inspected. Look for separation of the rubber and metal mounts that hold the mount together. If separation is detected, the mount must be replaced.
