Took the car for a little spin today and found a new noise when I got back. Was pulling the car into the garage and pushed in on the clutch and let the car roll back maybe 5 feet, heard a clunking sound. Did it a few more times, and sure enough, the sound was still there. It's defnitely coming from the ass end of the vehicle. Doesn't make any odd noises when going forward, just backwards. Any ideas? Later next week hopefully I can get it up on a lift and see if there is anything that jumps out at me. I'm pretty sure I need to replace my pinion seal, but not sure if that could cause any problems. I changed out the rear diff fluid a few weeks ago, so I know it's topped off. Seems like one thing after another with this car.
