Hello motorheads, it was suggested that I try asking this question here. I was wondering if anyone knew if the new V6 in the 2003 4Runner is shared by any other Toyota vehicle. I am trying to get to the bottom of this noisy valvetrain clicking/clacking noise when vehicle is under load. This noise is especially noticable when vehicle is driven next to a wall or cement highway divider. If this new engine is shared in any other Toyota, perhaps I could go to those Edmund's discussions and get valuable info.
Also, even if this engine is exclusive to the new 4Runner, would any of you have suggestions for this repair, since Toyota has been unable to resolve this issue with myself and others.
