FRS Clicking/Tapping sound

So I've been hearing this noise for quite some time now. Its like a clicking or tapping sound and I can hear it at idle which sounds normal but it gets significantly louder as I push the throttle. The higher the RPM's the louder the clicking sound gets. Its almost unnoticeable at low RPM's but god forbid I give the car a little gas because that sound gets really loud and keeps going until shift gears to lower RPM. Anybody know what this is? I've searched but cant seem to find any info on it.

Oh and I just recently started getting the crickets too. They are really loud and can be heard from in the cabin even with the music turned up.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I don't have a video of it but it sounds just like this. Only happens when I accelerate, at ANY speed. It gets louder and faster, the harder I push the gas pedal. It stops when I let go of the gas pedal instantly.

Only thing u can really do is take the car to toyota to get a new fuel pump.other then that if you're running lower grade gas try 91 if not best bet is to deal with it until toyota finds a cure for this disease or get a replacement at toyota that will only last u a couple hundred miles before it starts making the noise again

Yea I'm going to the dealer tomorrow after class.. I have no clue what it could be. Idk if its the fuel pump but I'll take a new one if they can do that for me. At least it'll quiet the crickets for a bit haha. But I'm worried about this other noise. I don't know what it could be, all I know is its coming from the engine bay area. Toyota better not try and pull one of those "its normal, don't worry about it" type BS

I'm thinking it might be an exhaust leak, maybe a bad gasket or seal in the exhaust system up near the headers. Good luck at the dealer.

Seriously doubt that's a fuel pump. Interested to see what they say it is.

Does the noise happen when you rev the car in neutral as well? or only when in gear?

It sure does.. I revved the engine in neutral today and the sound occurs the same way. The higher the rpm on the rev, the louder the sound.

Yeah I doubt it's the fuel pump that's causing this particular noise. I'll update the thread when I get back from the dealer and let you guys know what they say.

When I was a kid my cousin had a car that sounded like that, remember him saying it was something called a doughnut gasket IIRC? It was exhaust related somehow. No way thats the fuel pump.

I'm not trying to be a ****, but you seriously don't have a smartphone so you can make a video? If you're gonna ask about a noise on the internet, it would really help. Having a recording of a completely different car doesn't help, no matter how similar you think the noises are.

That being said, the car in the video does sound like it has an exhaust leak. Is your exhaust stock? If not, I'd double check the gasket at the cat-back.

I'm going to attempt to record it when I get a chance. Maybe even later today. I just got back from the dealer and I'm not happy. They ended up pulling the "we don't know where it's coming from so nothing we can do" type crap. I don't even think they bothered to look. They also told me that they couldn't do anything about the crickets because there is no fix for it yet. So absolutely nothing was resolved today and my car is still making those noises.

Lol who's he? I'm the one with the strange sound going on haha

Well here's what the dealer gave me today regarding the crickets


As for the other sound, the clicking sound I'm more concerned with, they couldn't find anything wrong so they just let it be and told me to have a nice day. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I'm going to record a sound clip and post it tomorrow for you guys.

Yes find another dealership.and act very concerned and also make threats with lemon law. I had the crickets and some other issues I went straight to the dealer and told them I didn't want the car and wouldn't pay the note on a messed up vehicle. They replaced the throttle body and fuel pump. Bout 300 miles later it started up again and is progressing:/ worse comes to worse ill buy a different fuel pump or look into dropping the new legacy ej20 into my frs with turbo.its the same block as the fa20 throttle body is facing opposite direction and has turbo!!

Heres a quick sound clip of the noise. My phone didn't do so great at capturing the sound tho. I'll try and make another one with my camera and see if it works, but here is this one for now
