If it is slight clicking noise,could possibly be lifter tap,could be caused by low grade oil,low oil,and depending on mileage wear and tear.

But there are a lot of older tacoma,s and toyota,s that have produced over time a slight ticking sound,and as long as it dosn,t get louder,the yota will run a long time.

Thank you so much ! I think it is the old Toyota finally showing its age. Should I still run my truck by my mechanic to make sure ? Great answers and VERY fast ! Thanks
