I get a very loud clunk when I put the transmission into drive or reverse. I remove my foot from the accelerator to allow the transmission to go to the next gear otherwise it goes above 3,000 rpm to shift.

Try replacing your fluid filter in your transmission first. If that does not work, your tranny could have the gears wearing out. To solve the shifting problem, have a shift kit put in your transmission.

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

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

When i take it from park into reverse it pops really loud


Do you park on a hill, and not use the parking brake?? When folks don't use the parking brake, the car rolls a bit after you put it in park, and take your foot off the brake. Therefore putting pressure on the transmission to keep the car in place. Then when you start up, and throw it in reverse, it will pop, clunk, make an awful sound.
