    Hello all, just picked up my first taco (2003) couple weeks ago, loving the truck, just sorting out a few things on it. One of which has been a bit disconcerting is when the truck is well warmed up and you place into park/reverse keeping foot on the brake there is a click, click noise or almost like a gear not meshing properly noise. I Just had it to the Toyota dealer ship and they advise me this is a common ailment with this vehicle, the tech tells me that the other tech at the shop told him (his tacoma same year) does same thing, just what they do??...has anyone else encountered this nagging noise, if so is there a fix?? thank you for any responses, new out here so not sure if there has been a post on this already.

    discovering some interesting stuff as i investigate this noise, the culprit appears to be the slip yoke, grease it up and it stops for a period of time, you can also change driveshaft97-2004 were infamous for this, newer trucks apparently do not use the slip yoke... so there we go
    thx all
