i am having an issue with the ol ram that has had me and several other professional mechanics scratching our heads for some time now... the fam and i took a trip to south carolina and on the way back i noticed a knocking noise coming from under the truck. i stopped to check it out but could not find anything obviously wrong. i continued to drive home apx 70 miles. the temp gauge never went up oil preesure was normal no loss in power shifted and drove normally except loud noise of corse. changed oil no metal shavings. the noise sounds like a nut or bolt bouncing around in the bell housing of tranny. stuck a stethascope on the engine block right in front of tranny and could not hear the noise, moved back to bell housing and could hear it plain as day.the farther back i went on the tranny the quieter the noise got. pulled the tranny out and found everything to appear normal. replaced flex plate and torque converter and still nothing has changed. at idle the noise comes and goes but gets louder whenu give it gas. if any one has any suggestions or thoughts they would be very much appreciated! thanks in advance guys

Please excuse my previous. I accidently copied and posted the original message by BRIK12210.
I'm having the exact same issue with my 2012 Ram 2500. Did anyone ever find a solution to this problem? I would appreciate any guidance. My truck is currently sitting at the dealers shop, and they are not finding the cause of this issue. I thought it might be a starter gear that is not retreating once the truck starts, and was partially colliding with the flex plate. I now have a new starter, but the problem continues.. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
