  1. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I've been having a sort of grinding noise coming out of my transmission area that I can't pin point.

    Hi - purchased my 03' this past April with 66,000 miles and good service records. It seemed to be running fine until October, when the engine took a crap on me. Toyota said it was beyond repair and quoted me 13k for a new engine/cat replacement - 8500 for used. I obviously had a local shop give...

    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere...didn't see anything. I'm new to the forum, so I'd appreciate your patience. I have a 2003, MT, 61k miles. No performance mods, precats not yet removed but appear to be intact from the O2 sensor vantage point. I noticed that for the past several months...
