Hey, everyone I'm new to this site and I have a 96 dodge dakota sport with the 5.2 V8 and a 5-speed tranny. when i take off i first gear and hit about 2500rpms i hear a popping sound coming from my muffler. Its kinda like a rattle pop sound. Ive checked the muffler no holes or clogs , Any ideas?

Welcome to the Z Family from Southern Georgia!
Glad you decided to join us.

Is it like a backfire or more of a metal type of noise? No ideas off the top of my head.

Its more of a metal popping noise , i have no clue at all . I dont like the muffler being off cause i lose gas mileage and power but ive tried a new muffler and it still does the same thing. I drive it every day and i have no problems at all. just when i put a new muffler on.

Welcome! We are sure glad to have you!!

it happens whenever you put a different muffler on? then i would think it is not the muffler
