    Anyone else hear this? When I allowed my truck to roll back a little in drive it made a grinding / clicking noise. I did it again to see if would happen twice and it did. I don't intend on doing this again but was just wondering what it was.

    Thanks in advance

    My driveway is steep including right at my house. I pulled too close to the garage door. I took my foot off the brake to roll back about a foot and heard the noise. My other vehicles don't do that. I was wondering if there was some safety feature on the Tacoma to prevent it from rolling back while in gear.

    Its not a good thing because you are putting the weight of the vehicle againsts a gear that is. Being driven forward. Grinding gears is what it is most likely. If you need to roll back a better choice would to be either put it in nuetral or reverse. As for stalling engine its like when you are driving a manual and you stall out the car due to not enough rpms to keep it in motion. I would defiantly avoid rolling back on forward motion gears as it can cause damage

    I do have HAC but wasn't sure how it operated. I did not get a beep or light in the dash. It didn't roll back very far and it did feel like the brakes were still holding some. I won't do it again. Thank you.
