I think you will need to be a bit clearer with your description of the problem. Are you saying ... It runs bad until you hear this thud then it runs good. But it is still slow taking off from a stop? Or ... when you take off from a stop it is very slow until you hear this thud then it takes off as normal. Are you certain this thud is coming from the engine. Does it sound like it is coming from any particular location under the hood? For someone to be able to help you on an online site like this you need to be very detailed in explaining the problem.

Hi my hilux has developed a clunk when pulling away and changing gear sounds like the prop???

Apply parking break. Gently rock vehicle forward / reverse. Thud location should be more prominent. Either drive shaft cradle, U-Joint, or rear differential bump stops.
Other issues may include wheel lug torque / loose wheel, or loose axle U-Bolt Hanger to leaf springs.
If clearance permits, crawl under vehicle and move, shake, twist drive shaft with your hands. The cause should obvious... Good Luck!

Our 1995 Dodge caravan starts fine dies.

Do the following

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Need help diagnosing engine problem, 2.4L 4-cyl engine.

Sounds like your catalytic converter may be clogged. I had the same problem a few years ago. Jack your up and tap on the converter(when it is cold) and if it makes a rattling sound then the glass beading on the inside has broken down. The replacment cost is about $300.00.

Rev'd up engine high loud thud now engine wont start

sorry to tell you this but the final gunning of the engine your mate did sounds like the cambelt has gone ! to check try turning engine using spanner/socket on the crank pully if it turns backwards but not forward ? this indicates the pistons are hitting valves this can/will be expensive damage considering what happened prior to sudden failure and it is more than likely that the belt squeal you heard was in all probability the cambeltand tensioner failing ? you will need to remove cyl/head to investigate damage ? consider milage of engine? b4 you decide repairing and it may well be a better option to fit a recon or 2nd hand lower milage from breakers ? hope this helps? please come back with update or if you req info/help

Less sudden pick up

A Coil is bad, there are 3 coil packs, you should change them and the plugs.I know what you mean when you say after you turn the car off and then back on the problem goes away and then starts after a a few minutes or when you slow down or stop, this is because coil gets hot and does not function as supposed to.
