2013 Ram 3500 SRW Aisin. I've been experiencing a rattling knock from the engine during light acceleration at lower speeds and rpm (predominently below 25 mph). It started a month ago and is intermittent. It appears to be more noticable when engine is colder but can happen randomly anytime. It also will occassionally shake somewhat violently while idling after first startup. Is this a symptom of a failing injector? The truck has 72000 miles and has otherwise been a good vehicle except for the 13 recalls that wasted many days at the dealer. Anyway, I'd like to catch this before it becomes a major issue.
Thanks

Check the cold side turbo tube. There are some power steering lines with metal clamps that can get close to the cold tube off the intercooler as it goes up to the air horn. I have had those hit before, sounds like a hell of a rattle, almost like a high performance gasser running regular.
