Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma
When I start my Tacoma, there is a whining when idling, and also when RPM's increase. Haven't noticed any issues while driving though, other than this annoying noise. I've replaced the alternator, and flushed and replaced the power steering pump, but haven't had any luck. The Issue started a few days after having my transmission fluid flushed, so I'm starting to think there is an issue there?
I never suggest flushing a trans
Just remove the pan & clean
If you want most of the fluid out,
drive it a week or so then drain again.
I suspect the noise is the trans pump,
but don't know exactly how any dirt sediment
flushed into it would cause a noise

SOURCE: whining noise
i assumed it was a vacuum leak from the start. i search for it for 2 days checking all the hoses until i finally broke down and took it to the shop. my mechanic immediatly told me it was a vacuum leak too but unfortunatly did couldn't find it right away and i would have to leave it for him to fix. so after not 1 but 3 days and $90 later he told me that upon removal of my intake i had accidentally losened my throttle body from the intake manifold and blew out the gasket.

check for vacume leaks listen for a hissing sound if you here one but cant pin point it you can use a spray bottle of gas of can of ether both very flamable so be gentle and spray around the sound when the engine revs up theres your leak thats where i would start

It could be the fuel filter, fuel pump, or even the fuel relay. First check the fuel pressure using a fuel pressure meter. You will disconnect ond of the fuel lines in the engine and connect the meter. If there is no pressure at all, check the fuel relay in the fuse box engine compartment. See if wiggle it or reinserting it can get the fuel pump to work. If not you will need to replace it.
If you are getting fuel pressure and it is low, normally we replace the fuel filter. It is a cannister looking device connected in the fuel lines underneath the car. It goes in only one way according to the arrow. It is clamped to the framd and usually only clipped onto the fuel lines very tightly. You can use a scredriver to remove the clips.
If that doesn't solve the problem then you will need to replace the fuel pump. First pull out the fuel pump relay to depressurize your fuel system. Then replace the fuel pump by removing all bolts and disconnecting from the fuel line.

In My opinion, they are trying make money with services that are not mandatory. I drove many cars over 100,00 miles and NEVER changed the power steering fluid. Brake fluid should be changed every three years I think, but there again I have gone 100,00o miles+ on the original brake fluid. If the brake fluid is still clear then you should be okay.
