#4 of 31 Downhill Assist noise

I have a 2006 Sport , and finally got to go on some serious 4wheel dr roads here in Colorado. Going down a steep incline in 4L L, when I engaged the Downhill assist it was effective, however there was a rubbing, grinding (mild) noise that made me a little nervous. Has anyone experienced this? It wasn't extreme, and may be normal, but it was a "noise" .

I just bought a new 2008 4Runner and spent a few hours reading through all of the owner's manuals and guides. Pretty sure I saw something that said there would be a little noise emanating from the DAC. Perhaps you can check your operating manual and see if you can find what I think I found.
#7 of 31 Toyota 4Runner 2004- Deep loud repetitive pinging in engine
Dec 18, 2007 (5:40 pm)
my toyota has 48K miles on it. about 6 months ago I noticed a slight muffled pinging in the engine-mostly when going slow or in city traffic--its grown into a large deep ping-sounds more like a hole in a muffler than an engine problem--but its coming from the engine. I just took it to the dealer--they called and said I put too much oil in it--that isnt so-I have it serviced religiously and just checked the oil 2 days ago--they went on to say it was going to cost 5K to fix-but didnt tell me what the problem is--except said there is too much oil in the crankshaft. Anyone ever heard of the noise I am having with the car??other than the noise it drives great and I love the car? Suggestions? advice?

Rather hard to diagnosis over the net but it from your description, it sounds like a bearing noise. Does it happen when accelerating, under load?
Too much oil will cause "foaming" and if left that way for a period of time, it will cause bearing failure.
Dealer didn't tell you what the problem is and said it's going to cost $5,000?
Get a second opinion from another shop, preferably a local shop.
Let us know.....

Downhill assist uses the anti-lock brakes to control the speed. I suspect that is what you were hearing and feeling.
