Sound like the diaphragm springs on the pressure plate. are being worn by the release bearing. The release bearing seizes up and causes a whistling sound when parked, with out clutch depressed. You will eventually. lose you clutch if you let this persist. The best thing you can do is replace the clutch pressure, clutch, reliese bearing, and pilot bearing. All this comes with a clutch kit.
I also recomend resurfacing your flywheel.

-to remove your pilot bearing you can fill the hole with grease and take a 3/8 extention and hit the extention into hole. this usual allows the pilot bearing to come out.

I bet your pressure plate will look like this

3lt diesel hilux 2002 (5L-E engine, non turbo). when i slow down the oil light comes on and the gear shift shakes like the vehcile is about to stall. doesnt happen every time, maybe 1 out of every 5 times...


85% of the diesel engine problem is the fuel system. and rest 15%, if met, is a major problem. you have to check the filter. and make the fuel line solid. means no air in the system.

Humming Noise in the gear box


more than likely a worn bearing in your gear box, if it is every gear i would say input shaft bearing or output shaft bearing, unless it is while the car is stationary then depress your foot on the clutch if it goes away the its the thrust bearing in the clutch, also could be the spiggot bearing which will humm with car stationary clutch in or out. hope i have helped.

Hi there. i have a 1986 toyota hilux 3.0l turbo(knocking)


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.
