Kind of like a diesel engine sound? I think i know what you mean. I have it when i step on it from a stopped light etc...I am having it looked at in 2 weeks when i get my first oil change done. It is concerning for sure!

Mine idles rough like that when it's idleing (sp?) down on a cold start, but only for a brief moment. Before the rpm's fall below a thousand. My Ram did the same. I'm not worrying about it for the time being.

What your talking about ( predetonation sp? ) should have been taken care of with the recall. I've had the recall done & mine still does it, but not nearly as bad as before the recall was performed.

Sound kind of like crackling/dieseling?

Didn't get a notice in the mail eh. Tell your dealer man, warranty is your friend. LOL. Good luck.
