    First off, not 100% sure this problem is specific to this area but I'm not sure where else to post since I don't know the problem. I have a 2003 PreRunner-4cyl 85K miles. Bought it used and since I have owned it, when its cold or colder(i live in Atlanta) upon first start up inthe morning I hear this clicking noise coming from the engine. This noise goes away after the truck warms up. But if it is 55degrees or colder, the noise appears.

    2nd problem, after that noise goes away and I am 5 minutes into my commute(truck is warmed up by now) there is a screeching noise coming from the rear. Nails on a chalkboard and its consistent, doesn't vary. If I floor the accelerator it will go away, but then occurs again at speeds of 45mph to 75mph.

    Please Help. Toyota repairs guys locally aren't sure and of course it doesn't make the noise for them.

    I'll provide more information if you think you an help.
