Default Noise while Accelerating

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 when my RPM's are higher. Does anyone experience this or know what I'm referring to?

Thanks in advance!

You have a HEMI... its just all the power being unleashed! But in all seriousness I have an interior plastic rattle when accelerating and/or at higher revs. It seems like there is a sweet spot in the RPM where it does it and then it stops. I also have a S&B cold air intake which made it worse. More air=more power especially when the temperature drops.

I have the same thing at higher RPMs. I have no clue what it is but I am assuming it is just a resonance. I'd just keep an ear on it and if it gets worse take it in.

I have interior rattles but I also have an exhaust leak type sound when accelerating, not sure if it is an exhaust leak, the infamous dodge cracked manifold or just normal noise, the dealer will be looming at it when I take my truck there soon.

I have a rattle/buzzing/screech sound on my '14, also had it on my '13. It's 2500RPM+, louder as the revs increase, and loudest during shifts.

I found on another forum, people were having the same problem. What someone found, was about the clamp where the downpipes meet the exhaust, there is a little metal hook/bracket thing (looks like it was only used for assembly). Once that was bent up out of the way, the rattle was gone.

I've yet to do it on mine, just been too lazy to put it on the hoist.

deathwarden5 - I had the exact same problem with my exhaust and took it the dealer 3 times, each time they tried replacing parts on the exhaust and didn't solve the problem until a mechanic finally noticed that (metal hook you mentioned), it was just to close to the exhaust pipe and at high rpms it would vibrate and rub on the exhaust. Its a simple fix once you know were that noise is coming from.

Ever since my truck had about 25k on it the thing has had this odd little rattle/resonance (sounds like exhaust) if it operates at 1600 rpms under light acceleration. It will make the noise as it passes the rpm if you accelerate a bit more briskly but after a certain throttle input point I think it passes the rpm too quickly to produce the symptom. It's a very hard noise to pinpoint because its one of those things when you sit in various parts of the cab it makes it seem as if the position of which the noise seems to originate changes. It sounds very much like a loose catalyst in a converter but I can't reproduce any type of noise in the exhaust system. I really hope it ends up being the cat so it will be covered over the 8/80 federal emissions warranty.

Thank you all for the info. I have an appointment Monday to have it looked at. Hopefully it's the exhaust hook issue. I'll keep you posted.
