Loud Bang from engine/transmission area


Vehicle Information: Year: 2003; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 7300; Transmission: Manual;

While stopped, clutch depressed,6 speed transmission in neutral, waiting to pull into traffic, I heard and felt a loud bang, my wife thought we had been hit in the rear. After the bang, I put the car in first gear and pulled into traffic without further incident. This has happened sveral times during the 18 months I have owned the car. When I first obtained the car the shift from first to second gear seemed sloppy- I have since become more careful and this hasn't been a problem. All other gear changes are precise.
