My Ml500 driveline makes a clunking noise only when starting from a dead stop. If I am real easy on the gas pedal it won't make the clunk, but if I give it just a little too much it clunks. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Joking aside. Check your motor mounts. Open hood, hold brake firm, put it in D and blip throttle to 1500 rpm. Observe engine if left motor mount is broken engine will lift and fall back with clunk. Do same in reverse.

check motor mounts!

had similar problem and trusted my mechanic to order new drive shaft (from transfer case to front diff) and it turned out to be the left motor mount.
changed them both.

you'll need another person to check the engine when you're giving gas...
