I would not recomend driving under these conditions, if you have an axle broke or part of the drive train , it could fail and cause not only damage to the tranny and gearcases, but the wheels could lock up or cause you to lose control. If your not sure what the problem is, get it looked at ASAP. Also don't ever wait that long to check your oil. If your using that much oil you should check it everytime you fill your gas tank.

I heard a loud clunk like i ran something over in the back rear tire, now it has a constant noise as the tires turn, any idea what it might be

What you ran over --no idea

What the noise is--no idea

What damage may have been done--can't
guess without the vehicle to check over,you
knew that

Did you not raise & support the vehicle & examine
things & check over the tires real good !

I would park it-- until I resolved the issue

Ok I have a 98 z71 on my way home from my friends house tonight every turn i made I heard a LOUD popping clunking noise I could feel it in the floor and steering wheel it's on the front left side.....

Be aware of any changes to steering control. Is it pulling to one side? I have an 01 z71 and my issue, which sounds "similar" to yours is a dry secondary steering shaft which,apparently is common among these trucks. Ask your Mech. to check for that possibility while you're there.

100.000 miles on a 1998 Jetta 4 cyl gas,, what maintenancee is required?

hi if your talking about service then you need to find out when the timing belt was done last if it has not been done then its due.

other than that you need to check gearbox oil level
change oil and oil filter
change air filter
change spark plugs
change fuel filter
check tyres and tyre pressure
check lights working
check washer bottle fluid level and check its working
take it for a drive on a bumpy road and listen for any knocking noises if any are heard then bottom ball joint needs replacing.

i hope i have given you enough to be getting on with.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.

It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive

I have a toyota corolla 2001 and I am wondering if a P17570r14 would have a smoother ride than a p17565r14?

the 70 has a higher aspect ratio so it will ride smoother becasue it is taller between the wheel and the ground.

My oil pressure light comes on at very low speed on 96 camry

Take a gauge and check you oil pressure. If its not low then change the pressure sensor. If the pressure varies and the pressure is not where it is supposed to be, then drop the oil pan and look in the bottom of the pan. If you see slivers of metal then the bearings are going out. Eather the cam bearing, rod bearing, or main bearings.

Car shut itself down?

If the engine overheated for any length of time, it may have some fried rubber hoses and worse, a blown head gasket. If the latter has occurred, in the next couple of hundred miles, oily deposits may show up in the coolant overflow bottle or an emulsion of coolant and oil on the dipstick. This will look like dirty hand creme if it happens. If the gasket fails badly enough, there may be leakage of oil or coolant on the block below the junction with the head. If the gasket fails between cylinders, the engine may seem really tired or misfire and eat fuel. 
Worst case; damaged piston rings, rod and crankshaft bearings along with damage to other seals and gaskets.
For right now, I would make sure the cooling system gets tight again, the oil is changed (it may have chunks of burned oil in it) and drive conservatively with ears open and NO MUSIC for a few days to listen for irregular engine noises that could be caused by the engine damage described.
