#289 of 598 2003 Tacoma- Strange noise from engine
Feb 27, 2005 (3:18 pm)
Hi there... I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma V6 with 21k on it, and I have noticed a noise coming from the engine; it only seems to happen when the car is good and warmed up (after driving 20 miles or so)... it is a rapid "clicking" sound that becomes audible at around 2k RPMs, and gets louder (but not faster) when I press the gas. The "clicking" sounds like metal-on-metal... I'm thinking valves, maybe? It is still under warranty... is this something I should have checked out? I don't want to be a "hypochondriac car owner" or anything, and start bringing the thing at any strange noise, but... any advice and/or possible diagnosis would be great! Thanks
#290 of 598 Tundra DC Tire Wear
Feb 27, 2005 (6:38 pm)
My 2004 DC 4X4 Limited has around 10K miles on it now. I am on the second set of front tires, which were replaced at 3500 by the dealer after extreme wear was found. The front end has been aligned three times, and it is still not correct. It still pulls to the right, and the tires have wear on the outside edges. Has anyone else seen this problem, and what was the solution?

It's your vehicle, so I'm sure that you know when a new engine noise is present. It wouldn't appear that it's normal, but don't be shocked if that's what Toyota will tell you. They will resist addressing any engine issue short of complete or partial failure. If something bad is developing, they hope that it'll happen after your warranty is up so you'll have to shoulder the burden alone. Sounds a bit paranoid but its true.
Hopefully you have had scheduled work done on time with documentation and ideally by a Toyota service department. Toyota, like most manufacturers, will promptly blow you off if work was performed somewhere else when a warranty issue arises. Good luck and please post Toyota's response.

Flytundra: I only have 13000KM (6800 mi) on my 2004 Tundra and have the same concerns about front tire wear. At this point do not have a solution as I am still trying to get the dealer to acknowledge that a problem may exist. Would also welcome any replies from others if they hed a problem and the solution.

#296 of 598 2004 Tacoma engine failure
Mar 02, 2005 (8:00 pm)
We have a 2004 Tacoma that the engine hydrolocked on. Toyota is refusing to replace the engine under warranty, because water is an outside source. They say the water got in the heads thru the intake. Does anyone have any history of this happening or do you have any suggestions?

1993 TOYOTA PICK UP W/MAUAL TRANS.
THE PROBLEM IS THIS: SHIFTING FROM 1ST GEAR THROUGH 3RD GEAR IS ALRIGHT. BUT AS SOON
AS I SHIFT TO 4TH GEAR THE ENGINE STALLS OUT.
IT KEEPS STALLING ONCE IT IS IN 4TH. ANY IDEAS
OF WHAT THE PROBLEM COULD BE?
