  1. Sequoia Forum
    Hey guys! 2016 Sequoia. I got in my truck after working 12 hours and heard a subtle noise when accelerating. (Truck was fine when I parked it before work) Immediately looked at my gauges and noticed when I accelerate, the oil pressure gauge rises pretty quick. There is no check engine light on...
  2. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    My 2008 Corolla S engine makes a sound that is something like a sputter when accelerating. It's not a hard knock, and it is very noticeable when moderately accelerating up to 30-40mph. No noise idling, and I don't think it happens or it's not nearly as noticeable with acceleration while already...
  3. Camry 7th Generation (2012-2017)
    Hey guys, I have a 2014 Camry SE with the 4Cyl, 117,000 miles on it and about 4 months ago I noticed a rattle in a drive thru that seems to only happen in drive or reverse with my foot on the brake. It sounds like a jackhammer in the distance. Like something metallic flapping really fast. If I...
  4. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have a 1999 Solara and the car makes a loud high-pitch squeaking noise when the car is on. It eventually dies down once the car has been running for awhile but sometimes starts up again when I'm accelerating. The noise comes from under the hood and it first started whenever I would turn on the...
  5. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Have a 2001 Highlander and I recently had the timing chain, oil pump chain and the tension guides replaced because it sounded like and old diesel engine. It worked fine for about three months but now I have a rattling sound like if a lifter was stuck. I have placed a recording of the sound with...

  7. Prius 3rd Gen - Hybrid (2010-2015)
    I just read in The Washington Post that auto manufacturers are digitally enhancing engine noise for a more macho rumble or growl. The article also stated, "'Enhanced' engine songs have become the signature of eerily quiet electrics such as the Toyota Prius". Recently, over the past few months...

    I have a 2002 Corolla with a 4cyl, 1zzfe, engine and it has 151, 200 miles on it. This engine had the disappearing oil problem so at 139,000 I pulled the cylinders and drilled four new oil drain holes in the third ring grove. No more oil disappearing! Now it uses about half a quart every...
  9. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello all! So, my Camry just started making a noise today. I was able to find the exact noise it was making on YouTube, to use as a reference for you all. Basically, it's a low pitch whine that raises pitch during acceleration. Once at highway speed, it's completely gone (probably due to...
  10. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi everyone, Just finished a timing belt job on a 98 Camry 5S-FE (4-cylinder) with auto trans. Whenever I start the car it makes an audible rattle/clanking noise for 1-2 seconds and immediately goes away. It only happens on cold starts and doesn't come back while running. On top of that, if...

    Hi there, I'm facing two new problems on my 2004 corolla (1.8 1ZZ-FE); First is oil leak behind the engine / passenger's side. I've done some research and find out that its common problem of chain tensioner. Can you confirm this in my situation? And how easy is it to fix? Here is the video...

  14. Celica Forum
    Hi guys, I just got done rebuilding my 7A-FE engine and I noticed that at idle its somewhat noisy from the engine bay. With the hood popped it sounds like its coming from the valvetrain area, like around the valve cover/intake manifold noise. I'll have to get a video up of it. It's not a...

  17. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have an engine noise that sounds like an exhaust leak but not sure if this sound is normal for a 2000 Camry LE (4 cyl). It doesn't sound like lifter noise, but not sure. I read that a noise can be generated from the timing belt, or possibly a bearing. Any help will be appreciated...

    2001 Camry CE 4cyl - 5spd 90K miles I drove this car for 2 hour on the test drive to make sure it was solid and the carfax showed a single owner who loved is car. So I bought it.

    Hi, My 1999 corolla started blowing white smoke from the exhaust. It is an automatic transmission car with a remote start. The smoke only comes from exhaust and not from under the hood. I recently realized that the engine oil levels are dropping really quick but the coolant levels are fine...
