    Hi all, my 2.0 I-VTEC Stream (2001 auto) that I bought last year for 600 quid has just gone straight through MOT un-real, my new Smax is at FORD more that its on our drive.. anyways, just wondering if the missus and kids have finally killed the old girl.
    If I hit the accelorator from a standstill I get a clunk then a grindy sound as I accerate through 1St gear, if I nurture the car off the mark theres no issue.
    Transmision changes smooth and sweet, no leaks and no lights on the dash.
    Where would you start?

    Oh and if I try to gently take off on a major incline I also get the same loud whirlly grindy noise.

    Im thinking its an engine Mount or geabox Mount.

    doesn't seem to clunk and grind when taking of fast in reverse, only in forwards.

    Yes tried it in tiptronic same noise same issue... it may well be a failing box but it just sounds so clunkish, and it goes into gear smoothly changes smoothly, if I nanny the car along she performs floorlessly.

    Maybe im wishful thinking, hoping its a mount rather than an auto box issue ""
    Need to dig up some info on where these mounts are located and give it a visual insp first I think
