Are you sure it's the hood or is the sound from the dash area? If it's a back corner of the hood I would suspect loose bolts on the hinge. If those are all tight, I can't see how the back of the hood would be able to vibrate. There is a known issue of the plastic cowl under the hood at the base of the windshield vibrating. Toyota fixed mine when it was relatively new. I think there is a TSB for it. They basically pulled the plastic cowl off and attached some adhesive foam to the bottom. You could use some thin weatherstripping.

Thanks Zinger for the reply, When I look thru the windshield you can see the back of the hood vibrating. I will try the weather strip on the plastic as that is what supports the back of the hood.
