Default rattling during acceleration

Every time I start to give my 2000 Ram 1500 anything more than half the pedal, I hear a faint rattling noise and it sounds like it's coming from the front of the vehicle. Any ideas?

i just had that problem. If i were you id check the u- joints. If they are loose that could be the problem. If they have gone bad replace them and if the noise still happens then ill bet its the 4wd actuator fork. It sits on the front axle underneath passenger side. The seals on it may have come loose and its could be vibrating or rattling. Be careful looking at it though because the cover for it is crap. Hope that helped

where in the front do you hear the noise ? is it near passenger door ? if so possibly a blown cat converter and the guts are rattling.

I just had a similar issue and it turned out to be the heat shield above the cat had broken away from its mount and was hitting the top of the cat.

Bad cats are known for making a rattling noise. I have an old Toyota with a bad cat and it rattles almost every time I step on the gas.

Any chance you are hearing 'ping'. It sounds like a faint rattle. Have you had any engine service work done recently?
