Toyota lifter noise

Dear Barbara,

I have a 2010 Toyota 4Runner SR5 6 cylinder. The engine runs very loud with what seems like lifter noise.

Can something be done?


Dear Chase,

Changing oil on time and using the proper oil is the biggest thing that you can do above and beyond all things. Oil is the lifeblood of our vehicles, without it, we can not get from point A to point B.

Your Toyota should still be under warranty if it's making a noise like that I would take it in as soon as possible as this sound can't be good for it or your pocket book in the long run.

Thanks for writing in,
