Hi all,

Just started to notice that if I am cruising along with my foot all the way off the gas pedal, when I step on the gas again I will hear and feel a "clank". It happens every single time when I do that. But if I keep my foot on the gas pedal (even ever so lightly) and then press it harder to get it going, i wouldn't get that clank.

Another situation is when I come to a complete stop. I will get that dreadful clank moments before the truck comes to a complete stop.

Any idea what I am looking at? Transmission? differential? The sound seems to be coming from right underneath, though sometimes it seems to be coming from the back.

I have extended warranty so hopefully it is covered.

Thanks!!!
