    i've had my 2005 tundra for almost 6 years. I haven't had very many complaints with it. well, within the last month i had done an oil change on it and everything had been going good up until about a week ago. i noticed that when i stepped on the accerlertor the engine, or what i believe to be the engine, starts making a rapidly moving ch-ch-ch-ch sound. i've noticed the sound around 35 mph, 45 mph, and once it hits 50 mph it stays constant. I noticed that it has no correlation with the rpms, due to the fact that it isn't doing it while it shifts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    power seems about what it was before. Also, the noise is more of a loud humming/vibrating not like previously stated.

    So only when your moving right? 35, 45 and above 55? Not engine rpm related u stated.... does it change with decel? Or not and purely speed related?

    Do me a favor, go a steady speed when it's humming loud. Wth out tragic around. Turn left a bit, a little harder than a lane change. Did it get louder? Or go away? How about turning right?

    Ok I will try. It goes away almost immediately after decel. And comes back as soon as I step on the gas.

    Regardless of speed? Pinion bearings in the rear differential change noise on decel/accel.

    Wheel bearings typically change when steering side to side....

    I took it on some curves while maintaining a constant speed where the humming/vibrating was loud. The sound didn't stop nor get louder. It's in between 30-35 mph now, when the humming starts. I'm curious as to why it wouldn't be doing this at a lower speed.

    I checked the rear differential for any leaking seals and didn't find any.

    Get a grease gun and grease up the joints via grease fittings. When you see grease start to come out of the ujoint area stop.

    When I first got my Tundra I noticed a sound when I was accelerating hard. It was a high pitch scream. Then I realized it was me.
