Ram van engine clciking under acceleration

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram Van 1500, and it has recently developed a clicking noise to the right of the engine when the engine is under acceleration. Not
apparent when the engine is idling or not under a load. Any ideas what it might be? Clark

Is it a rattle maybe coming from the catalytic converter? Or an exhaust leak maybe?

I'm inclined to agree that it's an exhaust leak, especially because the exhaust system is all pretty rusty. My mechanic claims there are no leaks. Maybe I should take it to a specialist. Clark
