    I have a 2000 Tacoma PreRunner with the OEM tow package and tranny cooler. When pulling our 3000lb travel trailer after about 1hr of towing i start to notice some odd kinda grinding noise or ratchet like noise only when on the gas. If i take my foot of the gas it goes away. Any ideas what this might be. Temps have been in the 60's here fwiw too.

    Thx

    Not OEM.
    Differential fluid low or in need of replacement? I've heard them whine, but not sure on the grinding.
