    So within the last week my truck has started to whine after 2000-rpm. I've always been able to hear the motor and the exhaust, but now on top of that is an additional noise. When I push in the clutch it goes away almost completely, and becomes very noticeable after 2000rpms. I don't know much about tacomas, but I was thinking it might be a bad bearing in a pulley? I've lifted the hood and I was pretty sure it was coming from the drivers side of the motor, I couldn't be entirely sure though. Has anyone else experienced this? Should my warranty cover the dealership to check it out and fix it? Any ideas what else it could be? My fluids are full, oil was done recently, maybe 1900 miles ago? :confused:

    I hope it is something simple, a transmission problem would be so shitty. I don't really want to take it to the dealership right away, but should I?

    It sounds like a throw out bearing is on its way out. This seems to be logical simply because when you depress the clutch the sound goes away, also above 2000 RPM the sound appears...more revolutions on the bearing. It is my understanding that Gen 2s have this problem. Hope this helps.

    Reminds me of the time I was working at a small auto shop and was talking to a customer when he was dropping his car off for repair. He was complaining of a whining sound coming from the right side of the car while driving. I told him "Well tell your wife to get out!" Wow! Did she get mad!!! and the look on his face was priceless.

    At any rate... sounds like a trans or TO bearing problem if it goes away when you push the clutch in. If it goes away when you lightly step on the clutch it is most likely the throw out bearing. If only when you push the clutch the whole way in, then probably the trans input bearing. Either way the trans has to come out. I would get a qualified mechanic to check it before committing to a major repair like this. If your truck is still under powertrain warranty, it should be covered.

    i bet you 99% its the Throw Out Bearing..


    which is a cheapish part (about $100 from a dealer) but it'll be a lot for labour...but you might be able to get it replaced under warranty...just do a search on here for Throw Out Bearing...there are a bunch of threads on the matter and things people did to get it replaced under warranty...it should help you and give you an idea of what to say/do to get it fixed for free :D

    hope this helps! and good luck
