Two noises occur, the 1st is the trans gear lash noise at various rpm's due to engine design of uneven cylinder firing within the V-10 configuration. the 2nd is the clutch damper system reacting to the cylinder firing timing, this is amplified when some aftermarket clutch assembles are used, instead of the Chrysler matched clutch package for your partiular vehicle engine generation and model year.
