    Is it a manual transmission? does it go away when you depress the clutch? I had an '86 XtraCab 4X4 5spd that sounded like it was blown up inside, ended up being a bad throw out bear!!

    Is the clunking constant, or does it follow speed or engine rpms. Does it go away as you get faster. About where underneath is it coming from. front or back and left or right

    yes it as manual, and it does go away when pedal is depressed. it also goes away when i put slight pressure on the gear stick towards any gate.

I have a Toyota Hilux 3.0 KZ-TE fitted with a intercooler and on Saterday on a 4x4 outing the engine light on the dashboard came on and the motor started spluttering and excessive white smoke came out of the exhaust. The problem persisted for several minutes and then went away. The verdict from other 4x4 owners was that the turbo needs an overall, I cannot understand this as it is fine again with no mechanical interferance.

I have a 2004 hilux 1kz-te turbo diesel. its suddenly made a vr loud tapping noise sounded like a belt broke but all belts including timing belt are all in one piece. the engine was cold and driven for...

Hi Gdw, I would have liked you to have given more details, such as, is the sound from start up and through the rev range, or does the knocking sound come at a certain rev range. I'm suspecting that the timing belt may have jumped and the valves are coming into contact with the pistons. The second suggestion is that combustion is escaping through a broken glow plug. If the injection timing has jumped and is out of phase that would also give a knocking sound. I think it would be advisable for you to have the valve and injection timing checked very urgently. It could be a tappet which has become loose, but as they are shimmed I doubt that could happen, unless a shim was not fitted correctly. Regards Johngee10
