Light clank when put into drive
Recently purchased a 1996 Ranger XLT 4.0L V6 and on occasion when putting the truck in Drive there is a metallic clank that can be heard.
Even rarer is that I will hear it as I pull away from a stop sign or light. Is this the drive line failing, ujoints, or something else all together?
There are 118,000 miles on the rig. Any suggestions shy of hitting a dealership would be great. Thanks!
