Question Knocking sound!

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and I am hopeing to learn a little about what kind of problem I am having. I have a 2001 Ram 1500 sport/off road pkg. 5.9 46re. The truck runs great after just putting a new plenum gasket on yesterday. But for a few weeks now I have noticed that when I start the truck up and let it idle after about 5 minutes it will start making a knocking sound around the bell housing, when I put it in gear for give it a little gas it stops. It only does it in park when at an idle. It sounds just like an engine knock but its not consistent like a rod knock would usually sound like. I have had some people tell me its the torque converter so the other day I pulled off the dust cover and checked every bolt on the torque converter and they were all very tight... I can't seem to find anyone having the same problems. I have 127,000 miles on the truck and change the trans fluid and filter about every 30,000 with atf+4. Anyways if anyone has any insight what this may be I would love to hear some ideas. Thanks

Hi neighbor, I'm in Boise. I don't have an answer to your problem, but we have a ton of smart folks here and I'm sure someone will be along that can help.

We have a lot of forums for all kinds of topics, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to post questions.

We LOVE pics of Rams.

Here's how to post them: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=73
