Kymi is on a distinguished road
Default '04 Dodge Ram 2500 hum at 15-30 and cold

Words of wisdom out there? Moved from Florida to Tahoe in Oct. In about January I started to notice a loud, periodic "hum" when starting the cold pickup and then only at low speeds, say, 20-30 mph. once i hit the freeway, no more noise. i started off with having breaks redone (they needed it,) but the noise is still sporadically there. it was so loud at one time, generally right when i first start it, that I drove straight to the diesel shop, (only 5 minutes away) and Jason got in to take a test drive, and the BLOODY THING made NOT A NOISE!
What could this be?

S.C. Express will become famous soon enough

Possibly cold tires, hard to say from way down here. No car or truck I have owned liked temps below 40.. They do odd things until they warm up.

Diesel, gas engine? Does it only do it when moving? Just a wild guess would be the rear gears.
