Can you describe the noise? I mean, my engine makes noise when I accelerate but nothing out of the ordinary... Just the roar of an underpowered 3.3 v6

Removed intake resonators, side steps, mud flaps, and rear sway bar
Factory installed brush guard(soon to be removed/sold)
Cb radio+Pa speaker

You have 6 hamsters in running wheels under your hood. One of those hamsters got his foot caught and is screaming at you.

If you could please describe the noise. Is it a rattle, whining sound, or a clunking sound. The guys on here are sharp but they have to know what type of noise your hearing to diagnose the problem.

its more of a whining or rattling sound. it happens mostly when truck is operating at normal temp. doesnt happen when truck is 1st started. it usually happens when vehicle is about to change gears.

Whining and rattling are completely different, could you try to spot us a few more adjectives?

Mine sounds like a "buzzing" at first or when cold then goes away.
