2004 Toyota Tacoma
Was just wondering if the 22re engine is prone to spark knock when accelerating heavily or when climbing a steep hill on the high way. I have slight spark knock only when doing this. The truck is an automatic. I feel kinda dumb for asking this because i think i remember reading something in the owners manual along the lines of "NOTE: it is normal to temporarily hear slight engine knock when accelerating or climbing a slight incline, but if knock is heard when holding a steady speed consult your Toyota Dealer". Do any of you guys out there with the 22re experience the same thing when climbing an incline or when accelerating? I also should say that the knocking im experiencing is only temporary and does go away when holding a steady speed.
