confused EEEEEKKK! Bad shakage, no good!

Eh dudes,

I was reversing my car today and gave it a little too much stick, it shook really violently, like the gear lever went 10cm in each direction for about 2 seconds. Scared the hell out of me. Anyway, the car ran really badly for a little while, like hunting for idle and blowing black as smoke. I had a look under the hood and to my surprise I found the MAP sensor vacuum hose pulled clean off the nipple!

Anyone who has pulled the hose off knows it takes a little bit to get these hoses off. After seeing this I thought to my self weather such 'shakage' could have done any lasting damage anywhere. This sounds like a 'Yagz question'™ (sorry Yaggy ) but are the transmission mounts strong? Can it come loose?

I sometimes have a ticking noise coming from under the car when it misses sometimes (not lifters ). I thought it was the exhaust manifold heat shield because it's missing a bolt, but on listening carefully it was found to be coming from the trans or exhaust to the right of the box. Any idea what that could be?

Might be a bit of a tech post, but I thought I'd get a better response here. I mean with all the experts and everything

Re: EEEEEKKK! Bad shakage, no good!

You might have buggered engine mounts Sunny. The transmission has 1 mount, its right where the tailshaft goes in, apart from that its bolted to the engine which in turn is held there by the mounts. I know the autos can be stalled up to see if the mounts are ****ed. I suppose you could do it to a manual as well. Put the handbrake on and into first and let it ride the clutch. Get someone to watch the engine and see it it tries to twist.

No thanks, I had enough that one time Whenever I reverse it hard it jumps around real bad. The engine always tries to twist, I thought that was normal? Always happens on Mum's car.

I can afford new engine mounts, but I hope my transmission is okay! That's my main concern.

Re: EEEEEKKK! Bad shakage, no good!

when im in reverse and give it some it just axle hops and sounds bad. my engine mounts are also suspect, when going from still taking off it will make a clunk just as the clutch it out and im applying gas.
