Hey there, I'm Cliff. I've got a 2000 Tundra with lotsa stuff done to it and I'm not finished yet. I keep running into little issues with different noises that I've been hearing lately. I've taken it to Toyota and they never seem to figure out what's wrong. I know that I'm not crazy and hearing things so why is it so hard for the guys at my dealership to figure out what's wrong? I would like to meet up with someone in my area that has similar enhancements done. Maybe I can start getting everything fixed that nobody else can without holding on to my truck for a few days.

:mad:

i hear you loud and clear on this one! I hear a noise when i am at higher speeds 50+ and in some cases at lower speeds and when i accelerate i get a low ticking noise right under my feet! i have it to the dealer, the mechanic, the muffler shop and no one can answer me this one! i was told i have ticking injectors ( which i do have) but there is no way they are as loud as the noise i am hearing!!!!

I have a 2000 Toyota Tundra. Just hit 149,900 miles and started hearing a ticking noise on accelleration. I hear it anytime I accellerate regardless of how long the truck has been running. It is most noticeable between 1400 and 3500 rpm. It seems more severe weh I am doing 70 and accellerate to 75 or 80.

I brought it to Toyota here, they replaced serpentine belt, water pump (both totally unrelated) and of course it still ticks. I brought it back and they can't find the cause. They tested for exhaust leaks and find nothing.

Any suggestions???

Thanks,

Tim

Many have said it's the exhaust manifold. Search a little, there's lots of threads on this subject.

Exhaust leak:
Used a stethoscope?
Valves adjusted?
Sparkplugs tight?
Have you just...........looked? Could it be something touching under the torque load?

Next time you're up on our lousy roads in The Bay Area, I'll introduce to my mechanic, Dex. He can fix it.
