    Yes. I like when mice carry food into those pumps on GX470s and it requires intake removal to access them. It does seem like the shut down is a bit delayed.

    To put things in perspective, the Tacoma is on track to outsell the GMC Sierra this year (140,000+ units). I wonder what the other 138,500 Taco owners feel about the air pump noise. :rolleyes:

    If this were a Lexus, you would probably be justified in your efforts. The Tacoma is full of squeaks, rattles and other weird sounds. Did you silence the ABS solenoid self-check at startup when you exceed 5 mph? Do your leaf springs squeak yet? What about the valve buckets ticking? No? Give it some time. :devil:

    Terras, believe me, you'll know when you step on some nerves around here. I think the response you received had more to do with puzzlement and disbelief than anything else. We have to get Terras and this guy to take a road trip together. With streaming video to TW, of course.

    Actually, you said, "It is embarrassing, and I do not know how Engineering was allowed to go forward into production with this making such a racket."

    So you aren't embarrassed, but your embarrassment is with the truck? Wait, you're disappointed. Is that embarrassed and disappointed, or disappointed, with just a dash of embarrassment? :notsure:

    NVH problems are worth addressing, but on the Great List of Tacoma Complaints, I doubt this rates very high. Frankly, I don't understand how someone could overlook something they find so embarrassing (or disappointing) prior to purchase. Whatever the future holds, don't ever buy a diesel powered vehicle. The embarrassment and disappointment would be too much to bear.

    Let me understand. I submit a paragraph in an effort to share knowledge about the Tacoma; and then get slammed. Got it. So I did hit a nerve after all. I thought so due to previous responses. Although some were cute like asking how to make your truck have that same ‘cool’ sound. It does not matter how many units are sold, or which product line the Tacoma might outsell. That is comparing apples and oranges where the smog injection pump is concerned. It appears your trucks are making a whole host of other sounds that you find more irritating. Out of the three other Tacoma’s I have owned (2-2WD and 1-4WD) I was fortunate not to experience many of the issues described as NVH. Hence my return to purchase yet another Tacoma. Trust me, the noise was not overlooked and is being addressed. Oh, and while living in Austria for 5 years I owned two diesels. I don’t remember either of them making the racket this smog pump makes, but they were German built cars. To aid in your quest for exactly how I feel: me embarrassed…No; is it embarrassing for the Toyota name and company…Yes; initially disappointed…Yes; will it ultimately get resolved…Yes. Not sure if a return here to offer whatever solution may be able to quiet that noise is worth the aggravation. But I probably will. One thing is for sure, this, like most open forums, is not dull.

    Slammed? Aggravation? I'm not sure TacomaWorld suits your temperament. Perhaps this forum would be more to your liking.

    I doubt anyone is on a quest to learn how you feel; I'm not. I was merely pointing out some of your contradictory statements. I also think it's funny to see someone get so twisted up that they apparently forget how to execute a hard return.

    If this cacophonous embarrassment of noise was noticed prior to purchase, why didn't you have it addressed prior to purchase?

    My 2013 is a couple weeks old now. I was about to take it to the dealer because I was positive there was something wrong with it because of this noise.

    This is my fourth Taco ('98, '05, '09, and '13, and I had an '07 FJ with the same drivetrain). None of them ever made a sound as atrocious as this.

    Every time I pull into work, I pray that none of the guys I work with are around when I pull in, because I know they'll bust my balls until the end of time about the racket this thing makes when it shuts off.

    ^What he said...I just assumed that the noise was okay. Glad it's nothing out of the ordinary!

    I've driven 3 differentnNissan Titan trucks for the last 11 years and recently bought my first Toyota Tacoma. There are a lot of things I like about it, but the noise when shutting off the engine is a big turnoff. It seriously sounds like something is wrong with it.

    Very disappointing function. I hope Toyota can make modifications at some point.

    Anyone know of a fix?

    I'm glad I found this info. I just purchased a 2013 sport and was wondering what the sound was.

    But that's just it, wondering. I couldn't give a flying f*#k that it makes a sound when shutting off...

    I don't have to deal with smog where I live (thank you Canada!) but I'm sure it's a step in the right direction for some areas...

    Do all manufact's have the same thing?

    Glad I know what the sound is now. Glad also that it doesn't bother me.

    I have driven cars with smog pumps all my life and yet to have one make noise like my new Tacoma. I wander if the Camerys or other Toyota vehicles do this? Keep complaining to Toyota maybe someone will listen !!!!

    I'm on my second tacoma. First was 1999 that I bought new and modded with pretty much everything at one time or another for 14 years. Toyota bought it back due to frame rust. New tacoma is exact same truck down to the black color with alpine nav/dvd, tint, de-badged, and softopper, so far.
    I just tell folks that it's the supercharger de-pressurizing as a safety feature.
