Hello,

I'm having the same click under acceleration coming from what seems like under my dash. I have absolutely no idea what it is either. I'd really like to know. I just bought my truck a week and a half ago. It isn't coming from the engine either.

at this point I have replaced all 4 rotors and pads, new tires. I think it may be a joint or bearing some place

I've witnessed mine even while revving the engine when it's in park. I honestly don't think it's from the engine though.

Exhaust leak at the point where the exhaust manifold attaches to the engine. Makes a loud "click click click..." under load, goes quiet when you're coasting or at idle.

Could also be a head gasket, but much less likely.

I agree with an exhaust leak. I think broken exhaust studs are common on the 4.7L...

could also be detination underload, dirty valves/dirty injectors, run a tank of 93 octane and a good fuel system cleaner !!!!! this should help, in not after that a good sea foam carbon cleaner should do the trick.

He said it does it even without load in park and revving the engine, I doubt the engine is detonating especially without load.

It's neither exhaust nor engine, I'm serious. I have no idea what the heck it is though. It's a clicking noise, not a tick. Most unexplainable thing I've ever heard, wish I could show one of you in person. I've already run 93 octane and seafoam. The engine ticks when first starting up, for a short time till oil gets flowing and warmed up. This noise is completely different.
