Alright, Well for 1, im new to the forums. Figured fellow tacoma owners may know my problem.
I own a 99 prerunner with 195k on it, ive had it sense it had 60k.
Ive went thro having my CAT stolen, to having my vehicle broken into.
When my Cat got stolen, at least my insurance took care of it and did the exhaust from the manifold back to the tailpipe, but anyways its not about that.
I have this humming coming from the rear end, when im going around 40+ and when im barely on the throttle it makes the noise.
If i let off the gas, then it stops making the noise completely. If its making the noise and i give it some more gas, then it goes right away.
It appears to happen when im going uphill or a flat the most, and when its about 2k rpm.
Its an automatic btw too.
I went and got the U-joints replaced, thinking it would be a simple fix, and i had no luck there.
I just need to see if any other tacoma owners had this problem, or if i should just bring it into toyota to get it checked out.
Only been happening for about 10k miles. And seems to of started happening more lately.
Its not a everyday thing, somedays i can get in it, go for hours and not hear it 1 time.
Seems to happen more in the cold mornings too..
Could it be the pinion bearing?
