2003 Toyota Land Cruiser 4.7L abnormal noise VIN: HD78RJMNZQ
could not pinpoint the source of the noise,but am sure it is coming from the fuel system,as the truck runs ok customer has decided to keep driving till something happens,noise has been there for some months,so i donot think it will be a major issue.
