1996 4Runner &Quot;Hissing&Quot; During Acceleration.?
I Have A 96 Toyota 4Runner And There Is A Noise That Gets Louder The Faster I Accelerate. It Stops A Few Seconds After I Let Off The Gas. What Could Be Causing The Problem? My Friends And I Joke That It'S A Turbo Because It Sounds Like One And We Have No Clue About Cars. Note: It'S Been Drivin Through Water And Mud Up To Its Headlights. Not Stuck In The Water. I Make It Through Everytime.

The most common problem is vacuum leak on the intake.

You might want to take that truck to a local dealer there was a recall for the head gaskets to be replaced free of charge.(if it is a six cylinder) the recall was x01. Then you could get your vacuum leak fixed for free. U may have got mud in the bearing on the front of the alternator or idler pulleys as well.

I Changed The Thermostat Last Week For A New, High Quality One. Sent It To Shop Last Week And They Said It Had Blown Head Gasket, However, I Think They Might Be Wrong Or Could Be As I Noticed The Above Still Happening. No Water In Oil Found And No White Smoke From Tailpipe Either. Clog In Radiator?? Thanks Btw-- The Car Is A 1997 Toyota Camry With 284,000 Miles On It.

hoses are normal. par.
t-stat giggle valve up top and a bled system with the heater temp on full.

head gaskets can be bad w/o cross contamination of fluids. not uncommon at all. can still cause over heating and further damage. check w/your mechanic to find out why they think it's a bad gasket. heed there advice.

i see nothing out of the order with the mechanics at this point. don't know enough about the symptoms to support any other conclusion.

How Much Will It Cost To Fix A Head Gasket On Your Own On A 1997 Toyota Camry?
I Have A 97 Toyota Camry, And My Husband Wants To Fix It Himself, Because The Mechanics Want To Much To Fix It. If Anybody Has Any Idea Or Knows Exactly It Would Be A Lot Of Help. Thanks.

Have to laugh at Betty's answer, almost all competing GM products have Mexican made engines, Toyota's are largely U.S. built.

To answer your question though, your husband will probably wish he just put in a few extra hours at his real job that he already knows how to do, as opposed to trying to jump off the deep end into a fairly difficult job even for an experienced mechanic.
The Camry head gasket job will be complicated by the necessity to do the timing belt at the same time. Not fun, especially if it's a V6.
