My 2005 Toyota Tacoma makes a weird noise only sometimes when I go up or down a hill, it sounds kind of like a rumbling/roaring noise and it only lasts a few seconds

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Zachary, you may referring to a simple "whine" in your transmission when labored, depending on your mileage your may want to have your alternator tested for a failing stator.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Could be brakes or suspension. You should probably have an inspection performed by a mechanic.

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Hi Zachary, When it comes to a diagnosing noises, we've found the best way to do this saving you both time and money is a road test with the customer in the vehicle. Verifying the correct noise and when it occurs is very important. Trained technicians will hear, feel and notice vibrations, noises and issues that vehicle owners may not or may have grown accustom to. I suggest a shop that will road test the vehicle along with you. Good luck.
