    hey guys!!!!! new to the site and a proud new owner of a 2007 prerunner sr5 d-cab. i love the truck, i have only had it a few weeks and it currenty has 79k on it. my question is that i have noticed that when i put the truck in reverse (its a automatic) it makes some wierd noise, its not a grinding noise kinda like a humming noise maybe. i cant tell if its the transmission or maybe even the steering gear cuz it seems like when im turning the wheel in reverse. im just wondering if this is normal or if anyone has encountered this problem or maybe knows a fix. thanks for all the help

    The whurr is usual for a lot of cars in reverse. Coming and going though...not so much.
