Not sure about the clunking noise. But the compressor always turning on probably means you have a leak in your rear shocks. It is a pretty common problem. You can't repair the oem shocks you have to replace. Many posters in here including myself have avoided the dealer for ordering these parts because of cost. (Looking at $400-500) instead buying from amazon

Hope this helps

Re: Please look!!!! Escalade owners help

I saw somewhere in another post that an O-ring on the compressor is a known source of the air leak and not the shocks. Hope it helps if you can find it. Does the truck have any of the warrantee remaining or Extended Warrantee on it?

If it's clunking when gears shift its most likely your transmission. Don't beat on the truck. If it's clunking over bumps theres something loose under there

It's just when accelerating you hear the clunk when accelerating and it goes from. 2nd to 3rd gear

It's possible but I wouldn't rule it bad just yet. Does it do it all the time? Strictly from 2nd to 3rd?

Check with your dealer, I thought there was a TSB for the clunk.
