Exclamation Rattle/humming under the hood @ low RPMs

I do not believe this is the same rattle "ticking" noise comming from the passenger side that many of you are having. Mine sounds like its comming from under the hood. it's a bad rattling/humming sound that only occurs in low RPMs when i barely have my foot on the accelerator. Usually happens around 40-45 mph and 60-65 mph when in 4th gear and SLOWLY accelerating. PLEASE HELP!!!! I have taken it to the dealership about 4 times for this problem and they can't figure it out. This sound is really pissing me off, so if anyone could help out, you have no idea how much i'd appreciate it!

Re: Rattle/humming under the hood @ low RPMs

I had a drivers s ide rattle under my hood after I installed my AEM brute force CAI. It turned out it was the hood latch cable rattling against the fender wall. I put some dynamat on the fender wall and the rattle went away. It only took me about 2 weeks to figure it out.

Re: Rattle/humming under the hood @ low RPMs

I had an annoying rattle, it turned out to be the hood itself! I just adjusted the rubber/plastic things.

Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time,
But always enough time to do it again?

Re: Rattle/humming under the hood @ low RPMs

I have some type of rattle when Iím idle or at low speeds. I can also hear the rattle when Iím parked and close my door which leads me to believe itís my heat shield. Iíve crawled under my truck when itís rattling and canít find the source and neither can the dealer, itís horribly annoying.

It's loud, but I like it. Between that and my magnaflow exhaust, I don't have to hear the kids whining in the back seat anymore.
