Q: Truck making thunking noise and not starting.

The most common problem for the engine that will not crank if the battery is good is the starter. I recommend that starter is checked for proper power getting to it from the battery and the ignition switch before replacing it. I would recommend having a qualified mechanic check the system and recommend a repair.
