Driveline snap

A snap or clunk noise when the vehicle is shifted into gear (or the clutch engaged), can be caused by:

  • High engine idle speed.
  • Transmission shift operation.
  • Loose engine/transmission/transfer case mounts.
  • Worn U-joints.
  • Loose spring mounts.
  • Loose pinion nut and companion flange.
  • Excessive ring gear backlash.
  • Excessive side gear to case clearance.

The source of a snap or a clunk noise can be determined with the assistance of a helper. Raise the vehicle on a hoist with the wheels free to rotate. Instruct the helper to shift the transmission into gear. Listen for the noise, a mechanics stethoscope is helpful in isolating the source of a noise.
