To be honest, if I can make mine last to 500k miles, I don't care how loud it is. If the "tick" is just a Toyota thing, I can live with it.

I called my buddy who has a 2004 V8 4runner and his sister has a V6 4Runner, they both said they have "ticky" motors.

Yeah I think my 1st gen is pretty loud. Like you said especially the fan but I love the sound of the 3.4.

I like engines that make noise. My buddy has a Honda Ridgeline, and that thing is silent. It's almost impossible to hear it start.

My buddy's car is a VW Diesel. He was walking to school one day to pick up his kids and I was driving so I stopped to give him a lift. So I'm running through the first couple of gears shifts when he turns to me and says/asks "This is a diesel?".

On the plus side, not a lot of sound insulation to get soaking wet ...

Mine is very quiet at idle. The fan does make some noise on the highway.

I've changed to Mobil 1 Synthetic, changed plugs. Don't know what else I can do to quiet this thing down.

I'm probably just so used to the Accord and my wifes TSX and how refined they are and need to get used to the fact I drive a truck now.

Other than that, really liking the Tacoma. Fits my needs perfect.
My daily drive is a Acura CL-S so pretty much the same engine, I agree the engine noise is different. I would have to say is the nature of the best. Your not going to get a 4.0 liter engine to be as rev happy and smooth to red line as the smaller J series engines. Just turn the radio up louder or roll the windows down!

It is always that. People just like to bitch. My engine ticks and I did the mod to try to quiet it down. It didn't help so I said oh gee and I just go about my business driving where I need to go.

Wow sounds like a cool job
