    This was a new sound within the last few days. It is intermittent. After that start up I drove home and had to stop and idle at 2 areas. First at road construction for nearly 5 mins. Didn't hear any odd noises from drivers seat. From there I drove about 2 miles through town 30 to 35 mph to dd drive thru. No noises there either.

    I just drained redline trans fluid and pumped in Mopar. Had some metals in the drained fluid. Enough that the mechanic said he was a little concerned. Going to drain and fill again in 1000 miles or so. I'm not prepared to have to replace trans and do motor work. This truck isn't worth 10k in repairs. So this new noise is in my head

    Sometimes after an oil change this will happen, you have to give it time again, likley fresh detergents just cleaned some plate away. Give it 500 miles or so and report back? Thanks J
