    Saw on the 2009 TSB thread that this issue should have been corrected for 09. Did I read that correctly? My 09 sounds horrible!!! never heard so many ticks from an engine. it goes in on Wed for the trans TSB, I'll have them check it then. Is there something I can reference for this issue. I'm a Toyota buyer, but wonder about his truck sometimes...maybe I should've bought the F150

    Hmm. I've never thought an engine needs to sound like an electric motor, so I am not bothered by the sounds of mechanical action.

    Nobody's stoppin' you from selling your Tacoma and buying an F150. You wouldn't hurt our feelings!

    I have an 06' and mine ticks as well. I worried about it to but my buddies is the same way. There's a thread made by chris4x4 where you use some rubber washers and it helps with the ticking sound to go away.;)

    The 1GR-FE has a total of 3 chains in it. 1 Main timing chain, and 1 for each set of cams. Also is a shim under bucket valve. Along with a plastic intake manifold, which tends to amplify internal noise, and an emissions purge system bolted to it, as well as other things, this makes for a noisy engine. Its normal though. :)

    Thanks for the intelligent responses guys. It seems to have gotten louder as time's gone by, now at 7Kmi. Will ask the dealership while my trans TSB is getting done tomorrow.
