Do you have reverse?

Yes with that loud clunk noise when you drive backwards

That sounds like the tranny has broken a planetary gear set inside the tranny, only a tranny shop can tell you for sure, but it sounds bad to me.

I had the same problem with my suburban in my photo and that wasn't the problem. Try this before someone tears into your engine: 1.Block your front and rear wheels up with cinder blocks put the truck in drive and then in reverse and if the driveshaft spins its the rearend gone bad and needs replacing. 2.If the noise is where the transmission mounts to the engine turn off the truck and check the bolts to the flexplate and torque converter buy if they're tight then go to step 3. 3. If the driveshaft doesn't spin being really careful listen for where the sound is coming from and if it's between the engine and transmission where you hear the clunking sound then you need to replace the torque converter and flexplate.

Put the truck in drive unblock the wheels let off the brakes and have someone look under the truck for whats happening if nothing moves it's the transmission but if the driveshaft spins it's the rearend
