I notice what sounds like lifter noise when I start my V-10 every so often. Haven't noticed any noise around 2000 rpm. But maybe if I turned down my radio I might. But my thing is it can make all the noise it wants as long as it continues to run as strong & good as it does, & gets the gas mileage it does.

Hey everyone, I am not a mechanic, I am a contractor. I have a 1996 Ram 2500 with the V-10 and i was looking at this page to find a solution to the hesitation that my truck has at low end and I came across the rattling issue. Good news, it is likely not internal. I noticed with mine that the exhaust pipes are in sections that are not welded, but clamped. By tightening the u-bolts the sections don't rattle and create the horrible noise at a low end or start up. Just a thought. mine did the same a while ago and I tightened the bolts and it went away for a while, came back recently, but I know that my rattle is from that. Check it out.
