Hi: Sounds Like you could have a Clogged Fuel Filter, Which you can Locate under your Truck on the Right Hand Side. Along the Trucks Drivers Side Frame. Thats the 1st Thing I'd Replace.Its not Very Expensive. If you can Get your Truck to say a Autozone,They will run a Scanner on Your System and will Probally Direct you in the right Direction. Other Parts that Could Cause this is Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor, Fuel Pump Relayor Fuel Injector Pressor Regulator. So I Would Get that Scan Done This Can Save you Time, Money and Pin Point Where Your Problem Is Coming From,It Could Be a Electrical Problem As Well. I Hope I've Helped You to let me Know The Quality of Help I've Given You Please Vote and Send a Testamony To Me. Thank You: From The WYOCWBOY

I am inclined to think that you may have gear teeth problems in the transfer case for it to lock up and make noises. Check the oil drain plug for metal bits.

Clunking/ticking noise during acceleration in 3rd and 4th gears

This sounds on the base of it to be pre ignition, if so the moment you take the foot off the gas it goes? The cure is to retard the ignition timing slightly, have you recently changed your octane of fuel? this will also cause this?
The noise is caused by the expansion of the compressed gases expanding before the piston reaches top dead centre causing the piston to \'rattle\' left unchecked will cause permanent damage and engine failure

Clunking and sputtering noise when driving check engine light on code 0300

air fuel mix is wrong, its a jumping code meaning its misfiring on all cylinders, broken valve spring would only do one cylinder, could be the timing is out or its being starved of fuel or air. or you have a vacuum leak or manifold leaking. can also be a clogged egr. . and also a clogged fuel filter, also induction flush can do more damage than good. if its not done properly the loose particles can clog up in the small veins in the engine. in away just moves a none problem oil problem to a motion problem.

Having a problem with my 93 camry v6. car shakes when it is idle, when i accelerate car makes a clunking noise and doesnt accelerate as fast as it used to. also check engine light is on. could it be dirty...

Most likely you need motor mounts for the shaking and clunking.
The check engine light being on could cause the accelerating problem. It could be something as simple as the fuel filter being old and plugged up. Have you ever changed the fuel filter? This could cause the engine to run lean making the check engine light come on. And when accelerating the engine will be "starving" for fuel causing poor acceleration.
