Question about 2003 Toyota Tundra

Open Question

I have a 2002 Toyota Tundra 4.7 V8 4WD truck. The engine is making some strange noises. It has recently gotten worse. It originally sounded like a bearing problem, but it sounded like a super charger or turbo. Lately is making a clinking noise as if a piece of metal is bouncing around. It sounds kind of like a penny inside of a vacuum cleaner. It gets worse with acceleration. It goes away when I can keep a regular high speed like on the interstate. It sounds terrible. I thought it might be the power steering pump or one of the pullies. It sounds like it is coming from the fan. I dont know what to do as it is my daily driver.

Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: grinding sound on pressing clutch in at high revs

The grinding sound may be a throw out bearing or the pilot bearing. The sticking throttle problem sounds like a linkage or cable binding up from possibly damage due to the impact from the accident.

SOURCE: my 2006 Toyota Highlander is making a DRONING

You probally have a bad front wheel bearing , when the noise changes when you move the wheel is typical of a bad bearing.this should be covered under your powertrain warr.

2002 tundra humming noise from front end while parked


That is your electric fan. Normal, especially in the summertime. Just make sure that you have enough coolant in your radiator, and that your engine temperature isn't abnormally high.

I need help on how to change a headlight bulb on my 2000 toyota tundra


  • 1 Open the Tundra's hood and locate the back of the headlight assembly inside the engine compartment.
  • 2 Unplug the electrical connector from the assembly and remove the rubber cover from the bulb socket.
  • 3 Release the retaining spring to loosen the old bulb, and then pull it directly out of the socket. Carefully dispose of the bulb to prevent it from cracking or shattering.
  • 4 Align the tabs of the new bulb with the cutouts of the mounting hole. Then, carefully press the bulb into the socket until it's secure.
  • 5 Install the rubber cover in its original position and reattach the electrical connector to the headlight assembly. Make sure the rubber cover is fastened to the socket before continuing.
  • 6 Start your Tundra's engine and test the headlights to make sure they work before closing the hood.

Golf 2002 mk 4 130 making a strange noise when revs up


If you think it's the timing belt, get it replaced or inspected.

Even though there are other things that might make a noise, the damage you might do by having the timing belt fail while the engine is running are not worth the risk.

90 Toyota 4Runner pinging noise


hi the pinging you here is ignition firing before it should but if you have a knocking noise i would suspect the worse but try doing a compression test first see if everything is in order then if this seems ok have you put fuel in it just before it started if so change your fuel if not see if the electrical system has a knock sensor if so run the engine and tap the block close to it see if engine revs drop if not replace but the knock is a piston best of luck yates210456
