  2. 2001 4Runner Limited making awful racket on startup for about 30 seconds from the Engine Fan area.

    4Runner 3rd Generation (1996-2002)
    It's sporadic. Doesn't happen every time on startup. Mostly when it's been sitting overnight and I start it for the first time in the morning. The noise sounds like it's coming from the engine fan area. Almost like plastic hitting plastic. But I've turned the fan with my hand and it's not...

  4. 2009 RAV4 Front End Growling Noise

    RAV4 3rd Generation (2006-2012)
    Our 2009 RAV4 front wheel drive has a roaring noise in the front end at speed that sounds like a wheel bearing failing as the pitch of the noise is directly proportional to the speed of the truck. I have put a stethoscope on the bearing housings while the vehicle was jacked and the wheels were...

  8. Winding Down Noise After Park + Releasing Brakes

    RAV4 5th Generation (2019+)
    Alright, so I've never heard this noise before in any of my cars, but I keep them so long it just might be that this car is more advanced. Car is brand new, off the lot so I wanted to see if you guys/ladies experienced the same. It now has 1000 miles (but has done it since day 1), but wife...
  9. 2009 Toyota Matrix XRS MT transmission humming

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    As the title says, my 09 matrix XRS (225,000km) has a bearing hum, suspected to be coming from the transmission. The hum gets louder with vehicle speed, doesn't matter what gear I'm in or if I'm in neutral and coasting. Both wheel bearings have been diagnosed as not the cause of the him, and...

  14. Where is the microphone located on the 2019 Camry SE?

    Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    When speaking to a caller through CarPlay I’m often told it sounds like “running water” or it’s difficult to hear me. Wondering where the microphone(s) are to determine if there is something near it causing the noise.

    Avalon 4th Gen - Hybrid (XX40/2012-2018)
    Hello all! I bought my TAH about four months ago and I have noticed a couple of months ago that there’s this clacking sound whenever I’m slowing down or in EV mode. Not sure what’s causing the noise yet but I do know that it’s coming from the rear passenger side. Any ideas?

    Hello! First post here! The car in question is a 2004 Camry 2.4L 4-cylinder. The car started making a somewhat periodic noise that I thought was coming from right side of the car. Initially, the sound awfully sounded similar to the wheel bearing noises I been hearing youtube videos, so I...

    RAV4 5th Gen - Hybrid (XA50/2019+)
    Not sure if this is an issue, but when I start off moving slowly I hear a quiet whining sound and more noticeable when coming to a stop. I've had my Rav4 Hybrid for about 3 weeks and I am a little concerned.

    Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I saw a video of a guy that put a CB on his 2010, have any of you done this? If so how does it sound? I'm looking around so if you guys have done stuff that sounds good I'm open to suggestions, (though keep in mind I can't afford a $500 system) Thanks!

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Owner of Toyota Echo 2004 1.5L VVTI manual 200k, we have heard a grinding noise only when accelerating or shifting. Took it to a few mechanics only to be told by all of them to change the clutch plate. So we changed it, but taking the old one out, we realized nothing was wrong with it. Having...
