When I put my car in reverse in makes a clunk noise then when I put it drive it does the same thing, but it doesn't do it all the time.... When I'm driving if i let off the gas and then give it gas it makes the same clunk noise... Any ideas what this could be???

Without a hint I would check the universal joints on your drive shaft first. Other then that it could be anywhere along the drivetrain; transmission, differential, wheel hubs?

This is a normal sound. It's the ring and pinion gear in your diff, "clashing". We get this complaint all of the time at the dealership...:)

Had the same noise issue... checked everything. Then I just so happened to look under the back seat carpet and found my spare tire jack loose rocking making the noise. I tightened it up in its holder and NO noise now...

Could be anything from a shot motor mount to a shot trans mount to u-joints, loose spare tire, loose battery, loose exhaust, anything.

We still don't know what year and model we're talking about yet...
