Strange little chirping noise
I just got my 2008 RAV4 Limited about 2 weeks ago. Had a 2000 4Runner for long time before that, and an old-school FJ40 before that.
My question is what's the typical sound I should hear when idling and accelerating. I've noticed this little chirping sound coming from the car when I am idling a little bit when I am accelerating.
I've heard some of these engine sounds before, but I am curious if a 2008 RAV4 with 51k miles on it should sound like this or if there are typical causes that would be investigated?
I've got an extended warranty that seems pretty comprehensive - I guess the question really is, a.) what does this sound sound like, b.) is it normal and typical or something to get checked out, or c.) something to get checked out right away or wait for normal service?
I've included a clip of what it sounds like because that might be the best way of describing it.
