I thought I was alone in this phenomenon. Now I won't worry about my new 2013 DCSB.

Gotta love tacomaworld.com!

Just bought a 13 with this same sound. Thanks for letting me know what it is. Does it seem odd that they're selling Tacomas with California emission control equipment out here in Nebraska?

So how to we make it go away

Why do we have the only car made after 1980 that makes a horrible sound after shut-off. How do we make it go away? If the 11's don't do it, then there must be a way to get rid of the sound??

My 12 made this noise found out it was the smog pump, My 13 does it. I would be worried now if I did not hear it.

Just curious--is this normal? It sounds kinda goofy...

Thanks

Its normal all 2013 tacomas do it. Its the smog pump.

Today's engines and emissions systems are quite well engineered and are not the power-robbing clusterfucks that we dealt with in the 70s.

There is virtually no power to be gained by removing any modern emissions component. Even removing the cat provides only marginal improvement.

Yes... it's 2013. It's not 1975 when your engine was running 7.5:1 compression and you barely got 200hp (crank) out of a 400 cubic inch engine.

Hi I have a 2014 doing the same thing. Talked to the local experts and they say working as designed btw. they say poor design and we need to lodge/regester our complaints/concerns by calling 800 331 4331. Toyota corp does not think there's a problem. If we don't call they will continue to crank out this version. Our hope is that they can retro better version that does not make noise and have it available or issue a recall. Call now!

You were fed a complete line of bullshit.

There will NEVER be a recall for this. Recalls are issued for safety related items that may lead to an accident, or severe engine/driveline failure.

ALL 2nd Gen Tacomas do this. It's nothing new with the 2014. Some do it after shutdown, some after startup, but this pump is in every 2nd Gen Tacoma and there is nothing Toyota can or will do about it.
Bug the piss out of them, and best case they might issue a TSB to pack a pillow around the pump to deaden the noise.


I think the melting DRL turn signal lens issue is a bit more important than a minor noise that doesn't bother most owners.

It's normal. Mine is a 2013 and I have done research on the web on this. They all do it. It doesn't draw attention from others though. If yours is that loud I would take it in.
