Q: I hear a cluck when I let off the gas.

asked by on

I hear a clunking noise when I release the gas pedal. The clunking goes away when accelerating or braking. Could it be an axle problem? I recently had the transmission worked on.

Depending on what was done with the transmission you could have an issue with the transmission mounts. The noise if it is more than one clunk then the axle may have an issue but would need to be checked by a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic.
