After the truck sit over night,when I pull out,start driving,go about 15 to 150 yards,I will hear a bang,a hard release,or a clunk. I grease my u joints and drive shafts every 5000 mile and change grear oil every 60,000 miles.I only hear it once,when I start driving to work. After work about 10 hrs I will start driving again the same noise,and hear it only once. I do not know,if this is part of the problem,but when I release the emergency brake,the light will stay for a little while.The colder it is the longer the light stay on.I know the senor is dirty,and I must clean it.Colder it is in the morning the lounder the noise.It sound like the noise is up front,around the front drive shaft,but noise can travel. As I said,feel like it is stuck,then release hard.Just once only.thanks for your help! Joe!

The next time the light comes on,the shop will kept it for a few days,try to fine the problem. The cats are walker ome,5 yrs warrenty,it will not cost me anything for replace of the cats.And i am having a hard time believing that the problem is,that i must put on toyota cats to solve the problem per,dealership says!!
