Clunking Sound????

Hi everyone,

I just saw a 1994 300e for sale but when I drove it there was a clunking sound when you accelerate. It was just one clunk and only when you accelerate. It sounded like something was in the trunk - I open the trunk and there was nothing. Any idea what this could be?

Thanks for the help

U-joints certainly clunk when they were going bad. But at some point MB replaced those with flex discs. Search around on the W124 forum (that's what a 1994 300E is) to see if this problem has been reported before.
