My 2004 Ram 2500 recently starting making this ticking sound. It only happens when it is in gear and gas paddle is being pressed. Sound like its coming from the gas paddle area on the other side of the firewall.

While driving, if step on the gas hard the ticking sound would also trigger a metal vibrating sound. It sounds like a very stiff peace of metal is vibrating, not a loose heat shield sound.

Does anyone have any idea? I am can't step on the gas in gear and look in the engine or under the truck at the same time. And I also don't think it would be wise to do that even if someone was to help me. The thought of being under my truck while it is in gear and gas is being applied is not a safe or smart thought.

Best.

A broken exhaust manifold bolt and/or an exhaust leak at the head will make the tick more audible.

That's what I am thinking too. Hoping it's not the Hemi ticks that people often refers to since it only happens in gear and with gas. But wouldn't that throw a code?

Yesterday..an extended cab Ram 1500 was passing me in town..and had a heckuva 'ticking' going on!

I first thought it was a diesel...but no..it was a gasser. It was running good it seemed..and sounded fairly normal except the loud ticking.

My 2008 with 4.7 don't tick.
