Whoa Nellie. My Tacoma had been making a faint knocking sound. One mechanic said it didn't sound like anything bad. Another mechanic said he & his second mechanic thought it could be a crankshaft bearing, but he thought it was the piston - a "piston slap."

Since none of those mechanics inspired any confidence, I took the car to the Toyota dealership. The guy there could not hear the sound at first, I had to clue him into it.

Just got a message on my voice mail, that's its engine bearings, they need to tear down the engine and it will be $3,100.00!!! This is a 6 year old truck, worth at least $10K so I am not going to ditch the truck but holy cow, what now. No Christmas here, I guess. I am going to take it to yet another mechanic, the dealer is so much higher than everyone else.
