The vapor recovery system applys a negative pressure to the gas tank, so that it can pull & store the fumes into the charcoal canister for use in starting & running the engine.

SO, if you don't have any vapor system trouble codes, or aren't having engine stalls, what your hearing when removing the gas cap, is likely normal.

If your having engine stalls after driving 10-20 miles, suspect an actng out vapor recovery system, or a faulty gas cap not properly venting the tank.

Not sure about the clunk, maybe time to crawl underneath & have a look-see!!!!
