So ... I have a new issue that just came up the other day or I just never noticed it.

It doesn't happen all the time, it's very random.

As soon as I start the car (sometimes), I will hear a grinding noise that matches idle speed. The noise also stays when it is put in reverse but the other gears are fine, no noise.

Anyone ever come across this?

Wouldn't hurt, especially with your mileage.


It could really be something as stupid as a loose heatsheld.

I've got 104k miles on mine and had similar but milder symptoms as yours. Did a drain and fill x 2 on the tranny fluid and bam! Back to normal. Make sure you use Toyota transmission fluid. You will need 2.5 qts. per drain and fill. Good luck.
