    I'm less than two weeks into owning my first Tacoma. I had a 22re before this truck and another before that. My question is; my current truck sounds like a hovercraft when running. Is that a Tacoma thing or is it something I need to address?

    I have not had the pleasure of running a hover craft- so I might be a bit off base- but it's a loud blowing sound??
    Is there a point that it comes from or just an "all over" sound??

    Have you looked at the exhaust piping to make sure you have no holes?? What kid of tires does it have??

    It's the engine fan, super loud. If I took off the radiator and installed wings I swear I could get airborne!

    could be a bad bearing or belt associated with the fan?
