Newbie here just bought a used 07 PreRunner TRD OffRoad SR5 Quad cab.
I have a couple questions about possible brake noise and AT shifting.
When I apply brakes with the windows up I hear a noise that sounds like the brakes are grinding and need replacing. When I roll down the window I don't hear the noise. I have looked the best I can at the front disc pads and they appear to have about 1/4" or so of pad left. Is this noise from the brakes or maybe the drive train?
Second ?. When I am drive in town and keep the speed around 40mph and foot on pedal the at is smooth, same on highway at 65-70 mph. But if I let off the gas to slow down, no brake the truck feels like it is shifting to a lower gear or running out of gas. My guess is downshifting. I am not used to a 5 speed auto. My older 98 PreRunner is only a 4 speed and doesn't do this.
If anyone has any experience with these 2 items I would appreciate the input.
