Re: Clunking noise when acceleratiing
Is it a single 'clunk' or a series of clunks?
Mine (98 XLT SOHC) did the same when pulling a loaded trailer up the last
hill before home. We determined it was the transfer case (advice from two
sources) and decided to have it serviced by the dealership. I guess they did
an oil change, that's all.
25,000 miles later, its still good. The clunk went away, and this is the one
and only time I have ever been satisfied with the advice and work of my
I suggest that you do a service on the TC for starters.
