My 09 1500 ram with the 5.7 has a rattle noise kind of like a rattlesnake tail lol comin from the engine area. It only happens when im driving not stopped, it rattles for about 10-15 secs on n off at random times. Wondering if anyone has had this issue?? I cant find it because id have to be driving for it to happen

Kinda sounds like a plastic knocking noise maybe but has a steady consistent fluttering sound and doesnt increase with speed or rpms

Does it happen under constant throttle or when you let off the throttle? Or both.....

Timing chain tensioner going out maybe? That slack could give you the sound you’re describing but of course no easy way to check this. If you search the board you’ll find some threads on this.
