Rattle noise when I turn my AC on and pushing at the gas pedal. Once I take my foot off the pedal it will stop. Only rattles when the AC is on. If the AC is off and im pushing on my gas pedal there is no noise. Advise please.
Do you

Could be "spark knock" which is the premature detonation of the fuel in the cylinder often caused by excessive temperatures in the cylinder (engine running hotter than normal), ignition timing advanced too much (this is computer controlled so its not likely the problem), poor quality fuel, etc.
Have you noticed the temperature gauge when this is happening?
Are you using the same type fuel as before (when it didn't rattle)?

Is you check engine light on? If so have the codes read and post them here for more help. Many parts stores read the codes for FREE.

With the truck in PARK and the engine running, turn the a/c on a push the gas a couple of times to see if you hear the noise. Let me know what you find.

Hi, Engine light is not on. I did run the truck in park with AC on high and pushed on the gas a few times at 5pm. No noise. It's only when I start driving off it makes the rattle noise while the AC is on. Then when I take my foot of the gas pedal it stops and then after a few mins of driving it will stop. I did notice that in the mornings around 715 when I turned my AC on driving off it doesnt make the rattle noise.

With the engine off, check the belt tensioner. Pull on it and shake it to see if the bearing are loose.
