    So hey guys... the story is a friend of a friend called me and wanted me to help him diagnose a problem with his dc2 integra, being that i also have one and have had to work on mine. So whats happening is if you don't shift spot on or dump the clutch a bit the car makes a pretty audible thunking noise, the owner of the car thinks that it may be the clutch engages extra-hard, but he's pretty sure its OEM so i was thinking it may be the engine mounts are past their prime. Also I noticed the shifter tugs forward, leading me to believe the engine is pulling on the linkage. I'm almost 100% sure its mounts but I thought I'd bring it to the experts before I told him to throw down $150 for some new mounts. So whatcha think?

    but the shifter does do that when the mounts are dead.

    sure sounds like the mounts. I've also had clucking noises and drivetrain movement when my control arms bushings were virtually worn away. A visual inspection of everything will tell you what's wrong.

    Have a mechanic diagnose it. If you can fix it, do it. If you can't, let him.
