Just bought my regular cab sr5 with the 2.7 ltr and manual trans 3 weeks ago with 35000 miles. I have taking a couple of long weekend trips with it already and it is quite nice. But when I am on 4 lane doing an indicated 80-85 mph and I take my foot off the gas I get a metallic grinding noise from the rear of the vehicle. I don't get it all the time and it seemed to settle down after fueling up? Any ideas on what to look for? I will be talking to the dealership but I would like to know what I should be looking for first.
Also when shifting I have noticed that the rpms when shifting do no drop when im shifting from 4th gear to 5th. I push the clutch in and wait to see and finally it will drop if I pause for 3 or 4 seconds but to me that seems very strange.
Thanks folks for any help you might have!
