#2513 of 2607 Re: 2010 4Runner 4WD torque setting for oil element question [warreb]
Jan 15, 2010 (6:12 pm)
I have the generic metal oil filter grabbing tool, but I went to Wal-mart and purchased the SST (FRAM brand 65mm 14 flutes) for under $4.00 which is a hard plastic (the more expensive one is metal). I have not used it yet, but I did find the torque settings for the oil change (after I had to correct multiple times Toyota Customer Support providing me the incorrect info for the wrong engine type). Here are the torque settings for the oil change in a 2010 4Runner:
1. Oil drain bolt/plug (bolt to drain the 6.6 US qts of oil) 30 ft-lbs of torque
2. Center cap drain plug (small O-ring to drain the oil from the Oil Filter element) 10 ft-lbs of torque
3. Cap with Oil Filter Housing element (big O-ring to remove the Oil Filter housing element with the 65mm 14 flutes special service tool) 18 ft-lbs of torque
I had to buy the Craftsman torque wrench (5-80 ft-lbs), since the one I had was for higher torque setting (25-125 ft-lbs).

I have a 1990 V6 4runner and on random occasions when the 4runner is warm and only when I press the brakes the idle jumps between 500 and 1500 rpm like im reving the engine. I was wondering if anyone knew the cause of this doesn't effect the running its just really annoying.

Jan 23, 2010 (6:44 am)
I have a 2010 4runner limited and brought into the dealer for an oil change at 5k miles as instructed in the owners manual. Service told me this truck has synthetic oil and should not be changed until 10K. I am somewhat concerned that I am not following the owners manual.

I bought a 2002 Toyota 4runner SR5 a few months ago and yesterday afternoon it started sputtering under load at low rpm's. It's been snowing and raining a few days now and I thought it might be a fuel issue or a electrical issue. Thoughts on problem solving to determine the issue? Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The solution - New Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. Replaced it and have not had a check engine light (or P0171 Code) or any problems since.

Did you find out the issue or the dealership? What was the total cost in parts and labor?

I'm haveing the same problem in my 4runner. You have a leak somewhere in the vacume line. My suggestion is to listen for a suck or a hiss. Then replace the hose where you heard the sound. If you can't find a sound, then ONE BY ONE (can't emphasize this enough) check each hose for cracking, tears or splits.
#2521 of 2607 A.D.D. is not locking in.
Feb 24, 2010 (9:17 am)
I'm sporting a 90 4Runner with a 3VZ-E V6 and a manual tranny. Every time I try to lock in to 4WD the front diff dose not. I have checked all electrical connections the seem to be functioning properly. So then I checked the gear box for low fluid. Still full. I'm trying to see if there is a vacume leak. Thus far there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary. I'm starting to run out of ideas for simple solutions and just might be looking into more complicated and more expensive ones. If any one has any tips before hand let me know.
One thing I have been thinking of is removing the ADD system and repalceing it with mannual "lock-ins".

yes mine and many other 2004 4 runner has this issue. toyota put me off until my warranty ran out.. i opened a case a year into owning the truck and was told over and over by the dealer that it was normal for abs, until two days ago when another dealer informed me that it has aq bad master cylinder and wanted 3000 to repair it.. i think we need to unite everyone and get a file opened for a recall on this issue.. chefkelly99gmail.com
