Question about 2008 Toyota Highlander
During normal driving, my 08 Highlander AWD Sport noticably flutters starting around 35mph and up to 45-50mph if gently accelerating or holding speed in this range. Occurs regularly. Have noticed that heavier pressure on accelerator (accelerating faster up through and beyond this speed range) resolves/eliminates this event in this speed range. Still concerns me. Will be taking vehicle to dealer service dept. Only 1 week since purchase. Wanted to spread the word to see if there are others who have had dealer able to fix the issue. Would like to know what was done.
If you have not adjusted the valves that would be a good place to start, 117,000 is not high miles for your engine, but valve lash should be done every 60,000 at least.

predetonation,called ping can result from poor quality fuel,and high outside air temperature,it happens at lower speeds under load. a rattle could also be from the heat shield around the catalytic converter,it would buzz more if you wer idling and turned up the fan,the fan pulls quite a bit of current,and tha a/c will load the engine a bit.
