Are you hearing this from the inside of your car? where exactly is the sound coming from? I had the same problem awhile back. The noise came from my glove compartment. Turns out that the cabin filter wasnt securely in... and missing the filter itself.

I went to change mine some time back and it was gone too. Who is stealing these filters?

For some reason they don't come with the cabin filters even though there's a space, guess toyota wanted to save a couple bucks.

yes the celica does not come with a filter, most people go out to home depot a pick up some 3M filtering media and cut it to shape.

I'll cut you some slack and agree to this fact but I think maybe you should make a better rhyme next time ;)

I'm guessing the Toyota Dealership. it was fine up until i brought my car in for a 60k at the beginning of this year. Either that, or it got sucked into vents.

Sounds like the clearances on your valves are a bit too high. If I remember right the GT-S uses a rocker arm so adjusting em shouldn't be too hard, probably have to mess around with some sort of adjustment screw.

Negatory.........each valve has its own shim........you have to get the right sized shims from toyota,
