Bought mine with 116000km, now done 153000km. Has made the same taPping sound (not injectors or vacuum valve) since purchase, sometimes i feel like its a little slow compared to some of the others we get traded in here but at the same time im running with extra weight. Had a light misfire when taking off early on after buying. New coil packs, plugs and fuel filter and never happened again

Just bought my 1st FJ, 2010 with 88k, hope to enjoy as many miles as you all!
Should I have the timing chain done around 100k miles or nah.?.

That tapping noise is just your VVT Solenoids actuating ............. just doing their thing. The sound resonates being they are in an aluminum engine block. :)

Everyone thinks its lifters/tappets, something out of adjustment, etc, etc.

My truck just hit 70,000 miles yesterday.
