Why does my truck seem to buck when giveing gas after letting off of gas to resume speed while driving?


I think you have a problem in your drive line, loose u joint etc. Start the truck, leave it at idle, hold down the brake pedal, and shift from forward to reverse several times should not be any clunking noises

A delayed clump sound when I put it in reverse


Can you specify what vehicle, standard or automatic? Is the clunk as soon as you shift into reverse or when you press on the gas peddle? If it is when the peddle is pressed then let off does it clunk again? Does the car shake or lunge when it clunks?

2004 Jeep Wrangler - Clunking Noise when shifting out of Park


It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

When i put it in reverse it makes a loud clunk


Hi Ali,

This sounds like one or more of your motor/powerplant mounts is broken. Here is an easy test:

Have someone sit in the driver's sear with engine running and trans. in Park.
You stand in front with the hood open. Have them shift from Park to Reverse, and then Drive and back to Reverse and Park, taking time to stay in each gear and give some throttle while holding the brake pedal tight. This will rock or move the engine a certain amount as they shift through the gears and apply power lightly. It will move alot more violently with broken mounts.

If you have a clunking noise on Reverse shifts, you should be able reproduce this with the hood up and pinpoint the noise and/or sight the faulty motor mount with a friend's help. Good luck, I hope this puts you on the right track to fixing this annoying noise.

Sincerely, Tater Todd
