SOURCE: Its sounds like a thump from back diff

If you have a 4x4 most likely your rear axel bushing is cracked, no big deal, just swing by your nearest Toyota dealer and order it. it goes for about $120. Easy to replace, use wd4 or nutsoff to spray inside the car body a few hours before trying to replace it. The accumulated dirt and road salt make it very hard to take the two long bolts out without a ¨fight¨. Please make sure you use a support jack to hold the rear axel in place when you get the bushing out.
Good luck.

SOURCE: what are the service interval for items on the 2006 toyota prado

For oil and filter - every 3 -5,000 miles. rotate tires at same interval. air filter is on condition, so check it at oil change and clean it until it needs replacement. trans. fluid is on condition along with filter or I believe 60k miles. Belts and hoses are every 3 years or based on condition. Get a maintenance guide from an auto parts store or go to the dealer for an owner's manual, which will have all of this information.

SOURCE: Rear diff whining noise

Give the old man a pat on the back! There is an oil plug on the rear differential. On a level surface, remove the plug; if oil starts to flow out, the fluid is full. If no oil flows, carefully put your finger in the hole and feel for the oil level. Your finger should go no lower than the first knuckle before you feel oil. If it goes further, you are low on oil and should either fill it up or better yet replace it. Rear axle oil doesn't get replaced nearly often enough in most vehicles and since your truck is 18 years old, would be a bad idea to have it changed. Best of luck.
