Question about Jeep CJ7

Loud Clunking when jeep starts moving in drive.

Anytime i start moving in drive from a dead stop i hear a clunking in the rear of jeep.
I opened the rear differential and noticed the ring and pinion gears were worn so i replaced them and the noise is still there. The universal joints in rear shaft are also good. This clunking noise also happens when the jeep is on a steep incline.
If i drive slowly on flat road the clunking goes away but if i give engine power the clunking is heard.

You need to check the gears in the pumpkin, take off the part of the driveshaft that connects to the pumpking (front, and rear) and spin the part the comes out from the pumpkin by hand

spin it fast in one direction then move to the other, like my jeep you will find that the sound is comming from binding of the gears. if they bind you now know what you have to do. take off the cover inspect for metal and chip teeth

I hear a loud clunking noise coming from the rear of the truck every time i take off from a stop


Three things: Either the rear brakes are releasing, causing a clunk, try service and adjust rear brakes. If not, go to the drive shaft, check the u-joints and/or jack up the rear of the truck and rotate your tires by hand to see if there is a clunk in the rear end itself.

My 85 f150 is making a clunking noise when driving down the road. Sounds like it's coming from the front. The clunk starts when you start moving and and the clunking increases the faster you move. No...


Possible broken belt in one of your tires. Move the 2 front tires to the rear, see if the problem follows the tires. Or run your hand around the circumference of the tires to feel for a bulge. Other, more expensive problems could be in the suspension. A-arm bushings, or wheel bearings.

My car makes a loud clunking noise at around 65mph.


Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front bumper....it was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.

Good luck!!

Clunking in rear end Jeep Liberty 3.7 automatic


Nearly impossible to tell you what it is without actually hearing and seeing it. I recommend that you check the rear universal joint, pinion bearing and wheel bearing assemblies for looseness. If it's that loud it shouldn't be too hard to find.
Good luck!!! If you need help doing the repair or have other questions just ask!!!
