Austin, your car is an automatic that has the option of shifting into a manual mode, so, what's the problem here?

Kelly, you're right, I don't think there's a problem.

I shifted for the first time last night and I was in 2nd and I didn't feel like driving manual anymore so I put it in automatic and ever since then the car makes and thumping notice as the center axle rotates
