    Got an 2002 v6 tacoma 4x4 5 speed manual.These is a noise coming from the engine area that sounds like a bad power steering pump. Only when I take off the power steering drive belt it still makes the sound. Sounds like it is coming from top of engine, but it's hard to tell. Any ideas.....Thanks

    Welcome to TW!
    many times, if the sounds isnt from the steering, it could be an idler pully, or clutch fan.
