    So i've noticed a rattle from the front of my truck (i think in the engine compartment or under the truck) and am wondering if anyone has come across this problem. I'm a little worried, i hope someone can help me here this site has been a life saver for me so far.

    does it smooth out once you get up to speed and are finished accelerating?

    mine is doing that and once Im up to speed its normal again. I have an exhaust leak that im too cheap to fix and too lazy to find,sounds like its in the area of the passengers feet

    Yeah it does go away. And its usually just when I'm in first and second gear and accelerating harder than normal.
