Talking Kansas City 08 SR5 V6 4x4

Greetings!

I am the proud and recently new owner of a used 4Runner!

Plan on doing some mild off-roading, ski trips, camping, backpacking, etc.

I have already taken it on a road trip and it was awesome cruising on the HWY.

During the test drive we went off roading a bit and I was really impressed with its off-road manners.

So far this thing pretty much rocks.

The only issue with it is the noise that the dealer called "fuel injector or lifter tick", they say it is normal and I have read some posts on here that say it is normal, but it sure doesn't sound normal. I will be taking it to an independent mechanic pretty soon to get another opinion.

Looking forward to lots of good information and discussion on the forum!

-Brandon

Welcome to T4R.org.

The ticking sound in the V6 is normal. Here's a write-up CJ3Flyr did to reduce the noise.
