Question about 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser
The vibration starts after a period of warmup (usually a few miles) and the original noise started after driving for 1 1/2 hours, parked 2 hours, driving additional 1 1/2 hours. Sounds like "wharfwharfwharf" then gets progressively louder unless you let off the accelerator. The rpm's are between 2000-2500 and do not change when the noise occurs. Shop changed the bearings in the wheel thinking that was the problem because the were heavily worn. Noise started back just after I picked it up from shop. You can feel the vibration under your feet and it sounds as if its coming from the middle back of the engine near the gear box but the gear shift doesn't vibrate. Using OD does not change noise or frequency of occurance. Noise does change when brakes are applied either slowing the noise or stopping it all together. Tightened all belts and found a little play in right front wheel as compared to a tight (no play) left front wheel. This LC is an AWD with good tires and plenty of tread left. 181000 miles with all scheduled maintainence. Knuckles were replaced by dealership for the former owner. Small oil leak from bad seal. No other noticeable leakage from the engine. I am totally stumped by this one!!!
