What causes the CLUNK noise in reverse in the morning?

Almost every morning when I shifted in reverse (with one foot on the brake and without touching the gas pedal) I would get a clunk noise. It only make this clunk noise once at first start in the morning. It wouldn’t make anymore clunk noise for the rest of the day. The car is parked on a leveled street, no hill.

What is going on? Need new ATF? Is it coming from the transmission or engine?

Sounds like you found a procedure that works for overnight parking.
Parking on an inclined slope may not affect your vehicle but if you do it regularly and continue parking on an incline it may have detrimental effects on some parts of the car which are not good for your car.
