Hi there, I am new to this forum and forums in general, but I was recommended by some friends to check you guys out
I have a 1993 Toyota Pickup and on Sunday, driving home from camping, I noticed my fourth gear had a really high pitched chirping sound. I figured it was bc I was accelerating uphill, and thought nothing of it.
Monday night, I was driving down the street and it started again. In fourth gear. It literally sounded like crickets in my engine…
It’s only in fourth gear, and it’s only in mid fourth - like if I slow it down (like I’m about to shift into third) or speed up (like I should shift into fifth), it fades out.
My brother in law the mechanic said I should try getting my transmission serviced, which I did, the next morning. It still makes the chirping sound.
It doesn’t make the sound when I have the clutch in, even a tiny little bit, but the second my foot it not resting on the pedal, it starts.
Some uneducated searching on google recommends checking the thrust bearing. I figured I’d ask for advice here too
Thanks for your help!
