2003 Mitsubishi Outlander 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
Here is my problem: going from park to any gear, if parked on a hill, there is a loud clunk which seems to come from right in front of driver. ONLY occurs when parked on hill and gravity is pushing down and backwards. Next, if going from stop and accelerate too suddenly the same type "clunk" noise is heard, but it seems to come from rear, and driver can actually feel in his seat somewhat an impact of some sort. Same thing occurs if accelerator is suddenly let off, when engine rpm's are high. This can be controlled by parking on flat surfaces or by accelerating v e r y gradually, and never letting off the gas when the engine rpm's are high. I THINK it is a transmission/drive train problem, but I am definitely no expert. This is an AWD car and I can't make heads or tails of how the system actually transmits power to the wheels, but I think the problem lies in there.
have the same problem?
