    I have an 06 tacoma trd sport 6 speed. Since i bought the truck it seemed to have a clutch squeak. A few months ago the truck started making a low grinding type noise, the closest thing i can compare it to is crushing rocks. Last week the truck started to make a whining noise. It The noise gets more distinct when accelerating. It gets louder as i accellerate and softer when decelerating. Its a whining, zining type noise. Im not sure if anyone understands what i am saying here, it is kind of hard to describe these noises. They are coming from the front end, motor area. Im bring the truck into a toyota dealership to get fixed i have the 100k warrenty that will hopefully cover what ever is wrong, but i'd like to try and find some feedback frist to see if its an issue i may be able to resolve.

    Could be an idler pulley or wheel bearing (as I just got this problem) seeing as it happens whenever you accelerate. 100k warranty should cover it. My extended warr. Didn't cover my wheel bearing cuz I have over 100k mi, now I have to shell out like 100bucks that I don't have :(

    Welcome to TW!

    Does it change when you depress the clutch?

    Do you hear it in idle as well, and as 98tacoma27 asked, does it go away when you press in on the clutch?

    The noise is there when im idiling, but its very low and indistinct. When i clutch the noise will die out. The noise is very hard to describe, it almost sounds like an electric motor that winds up when im accellerating then dies down when i let off the gas. When i get high rpm in a gear it will be loud, then when i shift into the next gear it will be quiet then get louder as i go through the rpm range

    I am thinking you have a bad throwout bearing.

    Have you checked out my thread called "Rattling Type Noise (Diesel sound)? I don't think we are talking about the same noise. yours sounds like a higher pitched sound than mine. Also, I can only hear mine in idle.

    someone else i talked to said it was most likely the throwout bearing. Dropped the truck off earlier today so i'll know whats up for sure tomorrow. Hopefully warrenty will cover it, im payin an extra 35 bucks a mon th for extended bumper to bumper 100k warrenty so hopefull i just get hit with the 50 dollar deductable. Thanks for the responses.

    Sounds like mine. Mechanic said idler pulley. Sounds like a metallic scrapping/rattling? I'll pick my 07-V6 up tomorrow afternoon from the local shop. They could only find the parts through Toyota. Didn't check a pick-n-pull.

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    I think I have the same problem. Mine sounds like taking your antenna, pulling and back and letting it fly, then it turns to a squeal. Let me know what you have done and if it fixes the problem.

    Sounds like everyone is mentioning the idler pulley. Is this a relatively easy fix yourself?
