Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
For several weeks, I will hear one to ten seconds of this sound a few times per drive to work, but not on every drive to work. It can happen at 10 MPH or 60 MPH, whether you are turning or going straight. It happens when it's cold, when it's warm. I haven't been able to pin point any particular thing that brings it on.
The Toyota technician rode with me Friday and heard it. He thought it might be plastic under the vehicle and moved some things around to help. We drove it again, could still here the sound. He worked on it some more but it was pouring down rain, so couldn't tell if the sound went away or not. It has not. It was probably as bad or worse today on my 1.5 hour drive. Does anyone have any ideas??
Catalyst converter heat shields or muffler shields. Do you live where you got snow?

SOURCE: whats going on
most likely the problem is you have blowby. the oil is coming up past your worn piston oil rings which is causing oil everywheres. start your car and remove the oil dipstick and see if oil comes out. if not you need a engine rebuild or new used motor which would be cheaper in the long run.

You are cupping air in the vehicke. To eliminate it, don't open opposing windows the same amount. If you have the driver's window opened, also open the opposite side rear window. Baffels on the windows will help.
