Strange sound from Engine

Just bought a 2009 Tacoma 700 miles on it and I have been having problems with a loud ticking. dealer says its fuel injectors but sound like to me a rocker arm, felt the cover and there is a definite vibration. I wouldn't think that a fuel injector would make so much noise. since I belive the fuel rods are on both side to fuel the engine. there seems to little or no noise on the passenger side. Dealer gurus say its normal. I say no its not. next stop Toyota USA. Anyone have a similar problem.

that is the toyota tic, do a search in the second gen forum and you will see a ton of threads about this, it has to do with the emissions, it's normal don't worry.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

No lifters. Shim under bucket valve train.

OP, the "Ticking" is cause by a variety of things, valves, emission purge, fuel injectors, etc....they are noisey engines. The trade off is they are dead reliable.

My truck was doing it earlier @ idle in my driveway... Annoying as hell. Easy fix too, cranked my music louder.

x2..i had an 89 4runner run with a broken lifter for a long time. Proves toyotas reliability.

Even after i fixed it and adjusted everything, it still ticked.

Welcome to the Tacoma ticking club.
My 09 sounds the same and was told the same by the dealer. I have had it in the shop three times, once I had it inspected by the Toyota Rep, (DSPM) and was told the same by him. My plan is to bitch each and every time I take it to the dealer so that it is in writing over and over again in case something does happen to go wrong. In all the searching I have done, I have not found one failure that remotely points to this as the problem, that comforts me somewhat.
