Question about 1992 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Possible transmission problem

When I let off the gas pedal and coast there is a rumbling sound comin from what I think is my transmission. My girlfriend describes the sound as someone snorkeling as if the exhaust pipe was under water. If I hold the 4wd shifter up when the sound happens, the sound stops. Can you help me out on this one?

In all probability the drive shaft universal joints are running dry or need replacement. Try greasing these before you have them changed.

If your transmission is an automatic, it sounds like the torque converter is locked. It could be something as simple as a bad solenoid. You need to get it to a shop and have the computer scanned to see if the solenoids have triggered a trouble code. Also, check your transmission fluid while the engine is hot and running.

Intermittent rumbling sound in transmission at ~30 mph when going uphill and easing up a little on the gas. very much like driving over a rumble strip on the highway like they put in front of toll booths....


Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.

Rumble strip problem. acceleration makes it go away???


look at your coolant. if it looks like coffee or its thick or beige in color, than you need a transmission and radiator replaced. your radiator failed. the build in cooler to be specific, which caused your trans fluid to mix with cooant and trans got contaminated,. your trans is junk.need to replace it with new radiator. make sure to flush out your trans cooler lines also. some of the contaminated fluid gets trapped inside of them. you want to have the system clean as much as possible.

Is this rumbling wheel bearings or transmission?


If the sound is all the time, no matter what you are doing then it is the Transmission going bad. CV Joints, Wheel bearing will only make the noise when in rotation.. Also remember that this is a front wheel drive car, so it will throw you off thinking it is the wheel bearings or CV joints due to the front wheel drive
