Whats up forum, I need some help from the people that know their sht and have some experience with the guts under the hood.
2 weeks ago I bought a 2011, 4cylinder, 4x4, Automatic, regular cab Tacoma. A couple days ago I noticed a noise.
I start the engine - put it in drive and once it starts moving you can hear a noise that last about a second or 2 (pretty sure its comin from under the hood). It sounds like a noise a cat would make if ya step on its tail. Its quick, sounds like a unwinding noise. It only seems to happen after the cars in park, then I put it to drive and go. So basically every time I start the engine put it in drive, once i start moving it will happen. Everything about the truck seems fine and it its not interfering with the trucks power, its just the noise seems abnormal.
Also it doesnt happen when I come to a stoplight and then go. Only after PARK to DRIVE then GO.
Its been raining everyday so I thought maybe it was cuz of the rain and a belt was wet or something but its been dry for the past couple days and it still happens so I guess that idea is debunked.
Anyway, The dealership I bought the truck is like 200 miles away, so before I panic and bring it back, I just wanna see if anybody knows anything before I take a trip back to the dealer. ...any ideas?
