Engine blew up at 160,000mi.
Nothing else important enough to mention.
These trucks are getting old, so be prepared to fix the little things that will break on you from there old age. just go to the junk yard and take what you need.
Well, when I bought My 4runner it burned oil and stuttered like one of the valves were bad. so I rebuilt the top end of the engine and fixed the rust on the rear wheel wells. For the last 2 years or so, I took the 4runner camping about once a month and did some off roading while I was there. needless to say, The 4runner performed flawlessly. I took it to montreal which is about 9 hours away. and it was fine. If you like that truck feel then youll love the older 4runners. There`s not too much power for the steep highway hills. but it will still get you there reliably.
The reason I'm writing this review is because the engine just blew up. I never checked the oil in the truck because it never leaked or burnt oil. but coming back from an offroading trip this weekend the engine was tapping real bad coming up a steep highway hill, I pulled over and, guess what. Theres no oil on the dip stick, it didn't leak out and I didn't see It burning the oil, so where it went, I don't know?
It needed 3 1/2 quarts! its my fault for not checking the oil before the trip.
