Transmission problem
1994 GMC Jimmy 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 79000 miles

I was told that a bolt or something is missing on my transmission causing it to make a noise, however I wasn't sure if the person who told me this knew what they were talking about. Is this true? Also, when I make right turns (mainly) I hear a clunking noise, and it seems that I can feel something moving underneath the floor on the drivers side. This sometimes happens when I go through potholes as well. I had my front shocks replaced about 2 months ago, and while it did make an improvement, because the "clunking" was very bad, it still makes a noise. And help would be appreciated!

Do you
have the same problem?

Your torsion bar mounts are broken. This is a rubber mount that holds pressure on the torsion bar(this is what the front end uses for suspension) this is very common. Also the bolt that he said was missing was probably the bolts for the transmission mount, for some reason on this vehicle they loosen up and fall out. Not a expensive repair and not difficult to do.
