I noticed the day after I picked up my truck, there is a ticking sound behind the driver side of the dash when I am accelerating. The harder I accelerate, the louder it gets. As soon as I let off the throttle it goes away. Anyone experience this? I have an appt on Friday to take the truck into the dealer, and I want to have an idea before I go in.

Is your truck a 4x4? Maybe the driver side CV joint going bad? I know if the boot around a CV joint gets damaged the lubricant will eventually leak out and it will get noisy under acceleration. That happened to my 77 VW Rabbit. That's all I can come up with.

I've had bad CV joints before and it's definitely not that.

Turns out it was something simple. The shift cable was loose, and rubbing against the front drive shaft.
