I have an '01 4.3 with 45,000 miles on it. When I am at a stop and take off, I hear a fluttering noise coming from the the engine compartment (I think?). After about 2nd gear I can no longer hear it, whether it is because it stops or the engine gets too loud I don't know. I took it in and the shop said it was the rearend, so they rebuilt it (luckily I got the ext warranty). But when I got the truck back today it is still doing it. Any ideas what this is or has anyone else had this problem? It started about 500 miles ago.

Mine's got the same thing happening. Mine's mostly in the beginning (1st, 2nd gear) but its fluttering. It does not appear to be detonation on mine -- though a new thermostat and fuel filter are going in today so if that fixes it, I will definitely let you know!
