Sometimes I hear a single clunk like noise when I start the engine, it is almost like a backfire but sounds more metalic. Any ideas on what may be the cause? 06 XT

Not sure if noise your describing but sometimes the starter motor gear can get clunky and noisy - usually pulling the starter out and cleaning/ spraying the crap out of and lubing the shaft it slides out on etc fixes that

Thanks Cam. I don,t think it is related to the starter motor, it seems to happen with the torque from the motor on start up. I am thinking it may be a engine mount or something like that.

Exhaust hitting something? Check clearances arround body/steering/suspension.

see if you can replicate it whilst hard cornering, this would confirm that it could be steering knuckle hitting dump (if its aftermarket dump) a set of group N engine mounts will stiffen it up & fix it
