Question about 2001 Toyota 4Runner
I have a 2000 4Runner that has developed a knock when I first start the engine. It goes away after the car warms up....any ideas of what is causing that?
Sounds like a lifter noise. worn lifters can't keep oil in them anymore so over night the oil leaks out. when you start the vehicle, you will hear a ticking noise or knocking noise till the lifters fill with oil again. only remedy is to replace the lifters.
you could try an additive but it's temporary.
