Wierd Clutch / Gear Sound

Does anyone else have a really horrible sound when driving in first gear and letting it wind up to about 3k rpm's then push in the cluth and it makes a clunking / rattling sound under the hood?? And when comming out from a dead stop, the 1-2 shift is quite jerky....all other gears are fine, can't even tell I shift, no jerk no clunk....just a very sketchy 1st gear.

Re: Wierd Clutch / Gear Sound (s60rdood)

My volvo has that now at 7000 miles and it is so annoying. When I depress clutch in 1st to 2nd, really loud clunk followed by a slight jerk. You can search the forum but it would seem like the axle ping issue. I'm taking my car to the dealership and hopefully get it fixed at the 7500 mile service. I know it's going to be an uphill battle. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

mine has done this from day one, and my dealer swears that it is not the axle ping, but that it is normal. I'll have them revisit it again next week. <p>

When I got the s60, the clunk wasn't really there during the shifts but has only gotten bad in the last 1000 miles. It is annoying and it can't be normal since it wasn't there originally.

Shouldn't be there.<br>What SHOULD be there is a death rattle kind of a noise when you shut it off (6 speed)<br>That is the flywheel, nothing to be alarmed of but it is a weird noise<br>There should be NO clunks<br>But also, if you do strange things, like depressing the cluch for no real reason at a higher rpm and not shift, or rock the car back and forth you may get some strange noises <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

"But also, if you do strange things, like depressing the cluch for no real reason at a higher rpm and not shift, or rock the car back and forth you may get some strange noises"<p>Sure, but why on earth would people do things like the above? Unfortunately, the there should be No clunks seems to be contradicted pretty commonly with this car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

I can take ANY car that normally would be quiet and I'll guarantee that I can have it make some noises if I do strange (not normal) things with it. <br>(Like rocking or jerking it back and forth)

Re: Wierd Clutch / Gear Sound (JRL)

Well I have def. never beaten on the car at all (dump the clutch, wind out every gear, drive like an a$$hole, ect....) It's just wierd, sounds like something is loose, but I am very mechanically inclined, and I poked around and looked at everything, and came up with nothing. The clutch doesn't slip or chatter at all, so it's not shot, I'm just baffled by the noise.

Re: Wierd Clutch / Gear Sound (JRL)

The point is not that we are doing strange things to make the clutch make sounds. Haven't we made that clear? MY wife and I have always driven manual cars and never have we heard this clunk/click sound so no, we are not abusing our clutch. So, what is exactly your point? That all of us abuse our clutch to say that we can say that our car is screwed up? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

I can get this noise to show up if I'm slowing to a stop in 3rd or 2nd and the car is under engine braking - right when I depress the clutch there is most definitely a "clunka-clunka" sound. I don't think that is abnormal behavior on my part, just a strange noise that I wish would go away.

have them chang the bolts that are behond your volvo symbols on your rims. If u put the car in nuetral pull the ebrake up, then you rock it a lil you can hear where the clunk comes from....
