Clutch Clunk Noise

Hey My 2002S has 70K on its clutch. It was replaced at 60K before I purchased it. At times when starting off I occasionally hear a clunk when engaging or releasing the clutch. The noise sounds like something heavy was loose in the trunk. It doesn't slip. Any thoughts?

It could be that your front engine mount it's gone..

Yep, if your front engine mount hasn't been looked at it needs done. That heavy clunk is your engine moving.

With bad mount, you may also notice a slight vibration at idle and/or a resonance at 3K rpm.

I hate and/or but wasn't sure how else to say it.
