Default Truck in shop for tranny problem

Truck started having a metal rattle while accelerating and when towing under load. Took it to the dealer today and they diagnosed the sound coming from the tranny. They have a tranny specialist and might have it all week. They have offered me a truck to drive while they have mine. This is the first one they have seen this sound on. I'll let you know what the problem was and the outcome when I get it back.

I commute daily in this truck 52 miles round trip and don't flog it.

So far the following problems have happened with my truck:

1.Rear window had to be removed and resealed to stop water leak.
2.Loose exhaust manifold caused exhaust leak. Had studs replaced.
3.Tranny noise - yet to be determined.

Still love the truck, just wish it wasn't in the shop so much in the 3 months I've owned it.

The first two items would have been taken care of had the RRT's been released before you bought it. COnsider yourself lucky to have gotten the manifold issue taken car of so soon. There are over 1000 of those studs on back order.

Torque converter.
They replaced it and no more rattle under moderate accel or while towing.
7 so far for my dealer on 2010 1500 hemi trucks.

$2300 for the "lifetime bumper to bumper warranty" doesn't sound so bad. My dealer will even finance it 0% for 12mo. I def. plan to buy it, though it means I'll never get to supercharge or turbo her

What is the build date of your truck... I am having a noise like you have and will be bringing it to the dealer next week. Mine only happens in overdrive.

Thanks...

Default towing issues

I just got my boat out today and also noticed a problem while towing.Mine wasn't so much a rattle but a shudder under while towing.Thought the tongue weight maybe changed driveline angle and caused a u-joint issue.Only problem so far.

Hey Weeser, I have a 2009 and my truck started shuddering at 4200 miles without towing anything. Took it in and guess what, torque converter. Good Luck.
