    How to repair engine ticking knocking noise
    04 Toyota 4runner sr5v6. 200k milestone.
    She runs li like a CHAMP all power, no check engine light no codes. Just this annoying ticking knocking that I cannot resolve.
    I read that from lots of people that it's normal, but I dont believe its normal. Its noisy when on idle. Has anyone accomplished repairs? Would like to solve this problem.
    Thanks a head to all u toy lovers.

    Pretty sure your ticking is injectors, I have a ticking sound at idle but it goes away while driving and I cannot hear in in the cab. Mine is a 2007 V6 with 230k miles

    ticking is caused primarily by the vacuum switching valve, or vsv, thats the loudest tick you hear
