enjoy reading mostly stupid questions and getting no replies to the serious seeming ones. Even more entertaining when the question posted is actually the answer.When help is actually desired (like uh- if you reply to a post) , I will do my best to lead you to a fix , or at least suggest what might be the most cost effective , depending on resources and skill level.

LIVE data , scan & watch spark advance. --Is the check engine light on? I'm guessing the timing is off a tooth.

Question Answered: 

SERIOUSLY....If you open the hood , then have someone start the car and you watch in the engine compartment , does the noise happen when the fans are on? Turn A/C off then on---see if a tool was left under the hood and dropped around the fan. Had that happen on an Accord---came from a body shop , pliers fell down and intermittently were hitting the fan on drivers side-sounded bad , was kinda bad , cause it damaged the fan blade which had to be replaced , but fortunately didn't get close enough to radiator. IF really concerned , and this symptom was part of why you had it at the dealer in the first place , I would bring it back and ask.

Question Answered: 

Check your brake lights! NO , Toyota (and all others , have certain features designed in) decided that if it doesn't see the brake pedal depressed , when attempting to take the car out of park(like when parents leave little kids in the front seat of a running car-that's kinda what got this feature started I believe) it won't let it out of park. IT is a SAFETY feature-not a problem. The problem occurs when a switch , wiring , or PCM goes bad. AGAIN , check your brake lights. Switch can be tested , also fuse (if that's the case , you should have some other inoperative items) and wiring from switch to PCM AND switch to brake lights....ALL can be tested and verified , BEFORE parts are bought. Have fun! ..Drive safely.

Did you check the timing belt? Sounds like it stripped , jumped a few teeth and bent a bunch of valves.....just a guess , but checking might save some time .
