    the rear end clunk

    oh boy....now you have me worried.....I saw one open line that connects to a pipe that goes towards the engine,. I t was just a line that was attached but cut short. The other line from the vapor tank was no where near that line so i bought a 2 ft line and connected... hoping that was the missing line....that was the only other line that was not connected to anything?

    the rear end clunk

    been looking for the other side but cant find anything that would attach based on the length of the line....it smells like gas and I traced it back to the reservoir. It from the the top left of the reservoir if you were looking at it from inside the car. Let me check again but there was nothing else .

    the rear end clunk

    Ok....i went under the car and apparently it was the bolts connecting the rear diff to the bar. They were barely hanging on for dear life! well thank goodness that was all it was. I ended up tightening everything else up. while i was down there i noticed this unattached line that connects to the top of the reservoir...any clues as to where this should connect to or is it supposed to be free falling?

    the rear end clunk

    thanks all for the responses!! bought this car because it had the s50 engine but now im debating if I want to go in that direction and put more money into this or just start over and stick to original.. ill try to take a look this weekend at the rear...hopefully its not serious. I was thinking of r200, but as it stands now....the revs are high.as it is....4000RPM at 80MPH

    the rear end clunk

    I know this has been discussed many times but I have the dreaded clunk in the rear when shifting gears. I checked the motor mount and tranny mount and both look fine. I video'd it and was hoping you could help me isolate the cause.....bearings, subframe mounts or driveshaft, etc?
