I think you will find it might be the speedo cable, I had an 88 hj75 that had the same problem. I'm not sure about the 94 model though, do they still have a cable or have they already changed to sensors?

i recomend getting a cat with out a bell around its neck and let it loose in your car.
in no time at all the cat will try to find the bird just watch where the cat heads and you will soon find your bird.

check for body flex. while driving place a finger on both the windscreen and the rubber. if the windscreen glass moves inside the rubber it makes a nice squeaking sound.
Have had the same problem on an old subaru and then on the troopie. mine was an '87 model.
if you look at the body of a troopie the only diagonal bracing is the windscreen. hence the cracked 'A' pillars that toyota deny even though they have a repair kit for it. The later model troopies have additional strengthening in the 'A' pillars. Roof racks make the problem worse.
might be your problem might not.

I had a 94 with the same problem(speedo cable )then it stopped, then oil started to drip on my foot after a long run. Pressure in the old gear box to transfer, easiest way to relieve pressure=back of the instruments from speedo, do you think I could find a mech. to sort it out.$$$ later.I had a hydra. hose made up running from infill of gear box to infill of transfer ie. relieved the oil pressure by circulating.

well i'm glad it's not just me. Thought I was losing my marbles. Mine's more of a whistling (varied) Magpie noise. Intermittant. Not joking. Can go a couple of weeks without a dickiebird (sorry) and on another trip can't get rid of the bugger. We've become kind of fond of it now. Sometimes short and weak, sometimes a full-bloodedwhistling tune totally different from the last. At first thought it was coming from the glovebox area, now we think it's in the roof. Mine's an LC100.
