THE EXHAUST SYSTEM ON MY DODGE HAS GOTTEN LOUDER OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS. I HAVE ALSO NOTICED THE ENGINE POWER FLUCTUATING AROUND 50-60 MPH. IT SHOWS ON THE TACH AS WELL. THERE IS SOMETIMES A TICKING SOUND COMING FROM UNDERNEATH THE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE TRUCK. THE TRUCK HAS 73K MILES ON IT, AND IT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
