Has anyone experienced clunking noise from P while going into D when first starting the car during in cold weather? sounds like my linkage is getting stuck from its way down from P too D?

yes, my SXT does it when it sits over night and it has been very cold out. It sounds to me like it's in the rear area. It will do it 2x - when I back out intially from P to R and then when I first shift back into D. After that it is fine.

I definitely get some driveline noise when very cold - I was assuming driveline lash somewhere, but it does not appear to be inside the trans... More annoying than anything else - I always assumed it was normal, and I do not intend to do anything with it.

maybe transmision mount or drive shaft mount.. (they look like engine mounts but they are rubber and they keep everything tight

I haven't experienced the symptoms in this topic, but I tell ya one thing about the NAG1...after a super cold night and first start-up for the day, it takes slow upshifts or downshifts to a whole new level! :p Talking about an order of seconds, and forget about any sort of useful autostick control.

I only expriance it when really cold, the tranny is not at proper temp and the shift from p to d is harsher. When warm no issues. I have been under my car several times and I can't see any external linkage that would cause that noise.

Good luck

Try starting your car in neutral so you get those fluids pumping in the trans, see if that helps!
for those that have drive shaft noise that is a different issue...

You think changing the oil in your gear box would help? how many miles?
