  3. Noise while Accelerating

    2013 Dodge Ram Forum
    I hear a strange rattling noise only when I accelerate in drive. This is my first HEMI, so I wasn't sure if it was a normal "HEMI" sound. It's hard to tell where the noise is coming from, but I would guess either engine, transmission, or exhaust. It does it every time I drive, and it does it...
