So, I just bought my first Tacoma last week. It's an 06 with 123k miles. So far I love it and already have a laundry list of mods I want to do... but first I want to work out the small things. One being a strange sound that I can't identify.
I have been hearing a weird sound coming from somewhere behind the driver side of the cab that I can only describe as a hollow bouncing noise... like someone dropped a wiffle ball in a bucket from a short distance. It's always nearly the same sound, and happens (that I've noticed) when I'm below 10mph and I jar the vehicle, either from tapping on the gas pedal or going over a bump. I was once able to recreate it by closing the driver access door, but only once. I can't figure it out for the life of me and it's going to drive me nuts eventually.
Anyone have any ideas?
