View Full Version : 03 xstar "clunking" in transmission

I have a buddy that has a 03 xstar that has a minor "clunking" in the transmission when he goes from neutral to "in gear" forward. If he leaves the throttle at this point the clunking will keep going, however if the throttle is pressed forward the clunking goes away. Dealer worked on it and replaced the cupler, but the noise is still there. Now dealer says the 03's make that noise (normal). What do you think?
