rattle noise during acceleration

I recently caught a noise in my 06 ram with 52000 miles. Ive isolated the noise to only happen during acceleration going forward. no noise parked reving the engine. no noise acceleration going in reverse. i mosly hear it at low speed but i can faintly hear it at higher speeds while accel. Cruises without a problem.

The noise can be described as metal rattling. Kinda like if the exhaust had a break in it.

I looked under the vehicle nothing looks broke or missing. Everything is tight U-Joints and such. I was thinking rear end but the noise doesnt sound like it would be coming from that.

Any ideas? Thanks much.

Most likely one of the exhaust heat shield s ready to fall off. Not a big deal, it happens on a lot of makes and models.

I have the same problem, but the noise sounds like a washer rattling on a bolt; it's the weirdest thing, and it only happens under light acceleration.

i just went out to check the heatshields and all i found was the tranny cable clamp was hitting the drivers side cat. i doubt that was it. the search and mystery continues.

there are also a few other things that it may be that is common with our hemis notorious with the hemi tick. could be piston slap or it could be the valves hitting. i really dont know much about either thing but that is what i have briefly read around here.

could also be loose flywheel-torque converter bolts or other internal torque c converter issues but you usually get a whirring sound with those or odd shuddering from the tranny. My vote is also on detonation or gas ping. Hemi tick is usually only heard at or near idle speed and will be a light to moderate and steady click-click-click.
