Picked up this Avalon a few years ago. First year was glorious. Second year people started complaining of a high speed tick when I was using my hands free ear piece with my cell phone. At first I thought it was just a cheap ear piece, but I have 3, all different brands, and it happens with all of them. Does not happen when engine is off. I do no hear the tick, only the person on the other end hears it. Over the past 6 months or so the same high speed tick started happening in the low end FM band (NPR station range.) It definitely sounds like an ignition tick. If you are old enough to remember vehicles with ignition wires, it sounds exactly like the tick a bad wire used to create on AM. My AM band does not have the problem, at least with any stations I tried. Again, if you turn the car off the problem goes away. Took to my local mechanic who replaced the factory original spark plugs with the factory recommended plug. The car now has 130K on it so it was getting close to time to change plugs anyway. Problem still exists. The 06 Avalon uses coil-on-plug technology instead of good old ignition wires. I no longer own a hand held AM/FM radio with telescoping antenna which is how I used to diagnose these problems in days past. Any insight would be appreciated.
Hi I Have a 1991 Hilux V6 3.0 Extended Cab, it was my Fathers' truck which he bought a few days before I was born, passed down to me when he bought a 2009 Tacoma V6 SR5, It was and still is relatively well taken care of, I'm trying to find some performance parts for it, I'm not looking to turn this thing into formula 1 race car, just want to get some more performance out of it, and also to get the best mpg out of this 22 year old truck. I know that there weren't many performance parts made for these trucks anyway. I was wondering If anyone knew where, or who made performance ignition coils for the V6 engine, so far I have only found stock replacements. On the other hand I have found plenty of performance ignition coils for the smaller 4 cylinder engine version of the truck, but why they would make performance ignition coils for the smaller engine baffles me... If anyone has any info on this, it would be greatly appreciated, and if anyone could give me a few other performance upgrade options it would also be appreciated.... thanks!
