Haha I like your username. 3.OHHHH YEAH.

Anyways, seafoam may help you. It is good to use it to clean out the gunk.. namely carbon deposit buildup. When I do mine, I use the brake booster line to suck in a bit at a time and let it sit about 15 mins. Then I start it up and rev it.. cleaned out a lot for me. Smoother and lower idle afterward. My buddy's 01 Taurus stopped misfiring after seafoaming it the same way as well.

Ha it is all good! Anyways, so yes if you were interested in Seafoaming the car, I'd be more than happy to try to walk you through it. A very good process that shops charge a lot for to do.

It does sound like a mount *could* be going bad especially with the clunking. It may not happen in reverse just because of the low rate of speed. Does anything appear to be sagging, especially at an angle? And if you could have someone hit the gas while in park while you are observing when the hood is open to inspect the amount of movement.

it doesnt really look to be sagging i havent had anybody pull it in gear with the brake on yet but ill have to. as far as the seafoam that will be a piece of cake. im pretty knowledgable on cars but it never hurts to be more knowledgable then i already am im not afriad to ask questions when it comes to a car that somebody has way more knowledge then me
