    I have a 2011 Taco, DC, TRD OR, 4X4. Love the truck, not my first Taco. Anyhow, the blower on low whistles(truck is so quiet you can hear a mouse fart:eek:). Doesn't matter whether it is on fresh or recirculate(louder on rec). You can hear it best on low. Not sure what would cause this, not the motor, sounds more like a flap/door not closing completely inside the HVAC system. Any ideas?

    There's a TSB for the blower chirp. Print it out and go to your Toyota dealer. I had mine replaced with the new redesigned TSB one at no charge about 2 months ago on my 2009.

    I went to the stealer yesterday, they replaced the motor and the noise is still there.:mad: As I stated in my original post, it sounds like a whistle, wind going past a small crack, like a door or flap is not closed all the way. I will go back to stealer today or Friday.:argue:

    Back over 50 years ago the rage was engine swaps, you never knew what pulled up alongside you at the lights.

    My first car was a '50 Chev hardtop. The first thing I did to it was to stuff a '54 Olds V-8 into it. While it was fast, it wasn't 'that' fast. There were some '57 Chevys, some 'vettes, and surprisingly, the '57 Rambler Rebels could occasionally beat me.

    Well I soldered a couple Captain Crunch whistles to the fan blade. In those days the fan was belt-driven and spun all the time the engine was running. Those whistles sounded just like a McCullough 'blower' (supercharger) with the whine/whistling up and down with the RPM's.

    Bluffed my way through a lot of drags. ;->
    Years later I was able to afford a Latham blower with the 4 Weber side-draft carbs.

    I'd have a mechanic ride around the block with ya. If that doesn't work you're probably just nuts :p
