There is aeveral things it could be. Check cataliac converter. As it gets older it breaks down inside and rattles. If you hear noise while driving it could be the brake pads on the front clapping.

My 2012 Chevy Silverado 4.3 liter 2wd drive has a clunk in the rear end and a rough idle no check engine light on


Hi Josh:
Sounds like you're dealing with 2 separate problems.
It's possible that the clunk in the rear end could be driveshaft universal, incorrect gear alignment in differential, or worn/loose suspension linkage bushings. It's a matter of checking all components to find the problem. WORK SAFE. Work with the vehicle on a hoist or on jack stands.
ROUGH IDLE? Check spark plugs. Try adding some carb/injector cleaner to the gas and going for a drive. (After you've found the clunk.

My transmission is clunking and grinding when I shift from park to reverse to drive


Does engage and drive normally? Because they only grind when you don't stop completely, gear grind. It is different to normal trans clutch plates engaging while you're riding on the brakes while shifting, they do make the 'clunk' - engaged - and then as you release the brake it grinds 'er er er er'.
So unless your trans doesn't drive normally, I'd say it's normal.

Turns over then cuts off


Clunking noise sounds like a piston to crankshaft problem. You can do a compression test to determine the bad cylinder.

That's an engine light so go to the dealer you may need oil change or something in the engine section that is abnormal.

My car makes clunking noises from the engine area but when the clutch is down at a stand still theirs no clunking just the engine ticking over. the battery light is lit staticly on the display too.


the battery light being on is not normal, this could be what is causing the clunking noises, whenever my battery light comes on i try and race home as fast as i can so i wont be stranded, because i know im running on pure battery power and it will only run for another 15 miles before she dies completely. Before she dies the car is making all kind of noises, clunking backfiring., so your alternator is probably going bad or your serpentine belt is very loose.

4x4 transimission clunks when engaged?


When engaging the 4WD system, you are pulling the lever on the Transfer Case right? Not the transmission, it's a different gearbox.
There were several versions of transfer cases that used both full and part-time 4 wheel drive.
From your description this sounds like a part-time transfer case.
Going with that, it is somewhat normal to hear and feel a mild clunk when engaging 4WD high range, especially if you are at a complete stand-still or under full throttle.
Try engaging 4WD High while slowly rolling at idle - no throttle. It should pull in fairly smoothly.
Once 4WD is engaged it will literally LOCK the front and rear axles together. So do not do it on hard dry pavement.
These older style 4WD systems need a little "give" especially when turning. The engineers assume you are not engaging 4WD unless you are in a somewhat slippery scenario.
Many CV joints, axles, U-Joints, differentials, and transfer cases are damaged and broken by folks who don't understand this.
Reading the owners manual should provide a clearer description of what you've got.
Bear in mind that when you come out of 4WD it may not completely release, again due to hard pavement binding up the axles. You can try this: backing up 10-25 feet in a straight line, or getting one set of wheels on the shoulder or in some gravel. That should allow it to release the transfer case and go back to everyday 2WD high.
I hope this helps.
:)
