There are a few sounds from my truck which are really starting to bother me as it sounds unhealthy:
1. When I accellerate fast in my truck in first or second gear it sounds horrible. Loud, resinating rough scratchy sound.
2. When I first press the gas pedal just a bit there is a high pitch chirp sound from the engine. If I hold the pedal in just the right spot the sound will continue.
3. When I start my truck and turn AC on there is a rough sound that comes from the engine for about 1 second. Doesn't sound good at all!
4. Overall it has a very rough throaty sound to it, espcecially compared to my buddies trucks (2009 SR5, and 2010 SR5). It's like night and day when listening to my truck vs either of theirs.
What are some things I can do / change that will improve the quality of how my truck sounds overall.
I'm going to put a dynomax super turbo muffler on ASAP and see if that helps with the throaty sound and also change my spark plugs this week. I did a full synthetic oil change last week.
Currently my 2x4 SR5 has about 51,000 KM on her and I don't drive her very hard at all.
