There have been several complaints of ticking when brand new, but most say it goes away after a while. If you can hear it inside the cab you have something different them what most speak about.

Are you running a lower grade fuel? I know they recommend 91 octane.

If I were you I would try to rack up some more miles & change the oil. That puppy is just breaking in. If it gets louder or doesn't go away...then back to the dealer she goes.....

eric had me over to verify that he was hearing something and it wasn't just his imagination
I concurred that there is indeed a sound, when the truck is idling and when you drive it you can hear it under acceleration
it is sort of a wow/flutter sound, moreso than a ticking sound
I drove his truck for a few miles and was surprised at hom smooth the truck drove, it has been many years since I drove a new tacoma, especially a 4.0 V-6
I am not sure it is a seriously bad noise or just a quirk of a new engine design

The ticking gets much quieter as it breaks in. Doesn't go away completely by any means. It is much more noticable in cold weather too. I'm at 5600 miles and it still ticks some and I too use premium and synthetic oil.

Spend $10-15 and go to a parts store and buy a mechanics Stethoscope and place in on different locations around the engine. Warning the noise can be very loud. If you find a general area then move around that locations to zero in better. More then likely you are just hearing valve train clatter and it will decrease as the engine breaks in. If you seem to isolate it to the bottom of the engine then drain the oil early say 1000 miles or even 500 and send in an oil sample. Cut open the oil filter carefull so as not to contaminate the inside and unfold the pletes looking for metal fragments.

This has been a common issue brought up in the forum here. Most 05's Taco's and 4L 4Runners have the problem. I've got 6,500K on mine and it's real prevalent at low RPM's. In my own opinion I think it has something to do with the VVTI causing the valvetrain chatter. At first I thought it was gas and ran premium for months but that never helped. My best advice is to save some coin by running regular gas in it because it doesn't make an audible or even power difference running premium.
