I've got the same engine noise in cold weather; worse when it's really cold. This is definitely valve tap or lifter tap in my opinion - that's why I haven't had it checked out. I had a 99 GMC Sierra that also tapped but the problem continued (but lessened) as the engine warmed up. I plan on changing oil types to see the affect - right now I'm using Mobile 1 5/30. Let me know if anyone figures this out.

I have been to the dealer twice, and the service manager is blaming my after-market camper shell for the squeak/churb noise coming from my rear suspension. I told him that I will remove the camper shell to prove that it's not the cause. Thanks for the info re the Service Bulletin. It may save me the hassle of removing my shell.

What has the dealer said about this? I have a 7 year warranty on my 7 month old Tundra, so I'm not too concerned, but the noise is annoying. I own 3 other Toyota cars, and none of them have this problem during cold weather.

sorry to hear about that they gave me all new brakes,calapers,turned drums,rotors,backing plates hardware the service manager told me it was a few grand worth of parts and labor! They are not calling it a recall though! Got it done at about 33,000 and now at just about 60,000 brakes are starting to have that catch and release feeling when breaking AGAIN!! I think I am going to try to go with ceramic rotors maybe they will not have same prob!!
#63 of 490 There is a bulletin out for the belt tensioners
Jan 03, 2005 (5:23 pm)
Toyota replaced my belt and told me there was an upgrade on the tensioner if this helps anyone! I have a K&N air filter in and it has a hissing sound out side of the truck and also inside the cab when the tranny shifts into gears. So the tech thought is was the belt and replaced it and also gave me the upgrade!
#64 of 490 Oxygen Sensors
Jan 04, 2005 (5:52 pm)
I own a 2001 Tundra SR5 with 41,000 miles. The first Oxygen sensor went bad at 35,000 miles and was replaced under warranty (3 year/36,000 miles). The check engine light recently came on and the Toyota dealer told me it was another O2 sensor but now OUT of warranty. Wanted $252 plus labor.
I called Toyota North America and was told that there is an "Enhanced Warranty" on the O2 sensors, good for 7 years or 90,000 miles. I brought this to the dealers attention ("gee, we didn't know about it"), and they are now ordering the parts.
So be aware of this and if you have paid for oxygen sensors, go back and demand a refund.

Just be careful the "enhanced warranty" only covers 2 of the 4 O2 sensors. If you get lucky the one's under the warranty get covered if the other two go out you have to pay for them.
