Pressure test the cooling system to locate the leak to start with. The clunking noise is coming from where? Pulleys don't clunk.

okay. and i dont know where the clunking noise is coming from. i just know when i move it out of gear and im driving it it starts making a clucking noise.

Does the clunking noise increase in speed as you accelerate?

Inspect the drive shaft before you drive it anymore.

For the clunking noise you should also make sure the transmission fluid was changed recently and is full.

Low fluid would not make or be the cause of an external clunking noise.
