I own a 2000 MT with 190K miles. The car is in exceptional condition, however, I have a pretty significant clunk when the transmission is loaded (letting the clutch out from a stop in 1st gear or reverse and going from 1st to second). I really have to feather the clutch to avoid the clunk and shudder. After reading all the threads here discussing similar issues, I replaced the rear engine/transmission mount, which improved the condition a little. The other two mounts look to still be in good condition while observing the engine when loaded (in gear). I'm wondering if this is normal or if I should be looking somewhere else (front struts, driveshafts, etc.). Shifting, once the car is up to speed, is like butter between all the gears.
