    Hey whats going on I have noticed a loud ticking noise coming from the engine :confused:. The sound only comes when the truck is hot and varies throughout RPM range. The truck has 62K on it. Does this sound like a lifter and why so early in the trucks life. Any info is appreciated.

    The Stealership says it's injector noise, and it seems that everyone with the 1GR-FE seems to have the same ticking noise. I had mine from brand new,and some people have never heard it... hit and miss a guess.

    Anyways, nothing is wrong with your engine. Just turn up the stereo and enjoy your truck!

    our trucks tend to tick on a regular basis. Did you notice this only after you lifted it? Or was it going on previously?

    you should pull a couple of your plugs and check em out. Look at the residue on them. Do you push your engine hard? When is the last time you changed your oil?

    Sometimes I have to with the 2 wheel and being up in Northern California. So yes sometimes over rev. I change the oil every 5K and I use mobile 1 Extended performance with a KNN oil filter. I talked to a local mechanic and he was saying its a lifter because of over rev???

    It could possibly but our engines have a limiter and I havent seen anyone on tw that messed up a lifter. Try and look for a user named: Chris4x4. Hes basically the TW mechanic. Shoot him a PM.
