alignment or actuator body this TSB does NOT apply. Refer to Repair Manual procedures
for further diagnosis.
Repair Procedure​

Pretty scary. No MILs here. I'll give it a couple more years.
The tick doesn't bother me. But, the repair above, along with the competence of the dealer technicians, does.

I'll probably ignore it until a MIL pops up.

Is the ticking noise referring to the noise at start-up that tends to go away as the engine warms to normal operating temperature?

MIL what?

The dealer can't change the oil good enough let alone take the engine apart. I wouldn't let them touch my car. Although if they mess it up, you could get a new highlander out of the deal

i am thinking of buying a used sienna but it has this clicking also. Anyone of you have a sienna with the same issue? I'm wondering if I should stay away if this is a real engine damage type of issue.

What is MIL?

I have a new 09 Highlander that ticks and has less than 2000 miles.

I thought it was breaking in. But who knows now.

What does MIL stand for?

MIL = malfunction indicator lamp. Basically the check engine light and the code it represents on the computer.
