Metalic Noise from under Right side on hard accleration
Hi all,

Been having an issue with 2013 SRT8. On hard acceleration is emits a metallic sound from under the drivers seat (Oz model so right hand side of car) dealer has had a look and still no joy. They said it was a heat shield but still makes it when hard (to the floor) acceleration from standstill) only for a short time or if slowing down for a corner then hard acceleration out of it if in lower gears. I suspect some sort of g/bow issue or transfer case gremlin but want it sorted. Car now has 20K on her and been doing it since about 3k as took it easy with her when new.

Any ideas?

Also oil leak from filter and suspect as have read other posts filter is at fault. will see how it goes. now showing oil change info warning at startup but still 4k to go till service interval.

cheers all

I had a similar problem with my '12 SRT8. I had a metallic grinding/slipping sensation whenever applying torque (acceleration, especially when going uphill or on on ramps). It ended up being a universal joint. The U joint and transfer case were replaced and the problem resolved.
