#106 of 122 Frame Rot on 2000 SR5
Feb 12, 2011 (2:49 pm)
Much like the tacomas...my 2000 4runner has a continuous 20"+ section on the bottom inside edge of the frame completely gone. It is as much as a half inch tall as well. This is on the right side, just in front of the rear springs. As far as I can tell it is the only location on the frame where it is occurring. I stopped by a couple dealers and they said there is nothing in the way of recall for the 4runner and after filing a complaint with Toyota, they told me the frame warranty is only good for 3 yrs/36k miles....apparently nothing they can do. Unreal.
Who else has their frame rotting on their 4runner? Have you had any success in having it remedied by toyota?

#109 of 122 2000 Engine stuttering @3000 rpm
Mar 19, 2011 (5:26 am)
I have a 2000 v6 auto 4runner, works great up to 3000 rpm, thens it shakes & stutters & won't go past. The exhaust is really hot, but I told the converter is ok. Its dumping raw fuel as far as I can see. Changed the MAF, o2 sensors, but to no avail. I see other posts with similar issues, but none ever give the final results. Please Help.

I never got it resolved. I traded it in. The only things that I tried were new spark plugs and ignition coils.
#112 of 122 on 4th Catalytic Converter in 5 years, 2001 4Runner
Dec 19, 2011 (7:49 pm)
We have a 2001 4runner V6 which has overall been a great vehicle. Unfortunately we didn't realize we bought one made to California emissions standards, which has dual catalytic converters so it's more than twice as expensive to replace them, it was almost 2000 just for parts, maybe more now.
We've replaced the cats along with the O2 and AF sensors 3 times already - first was expensive as heck, OEM, and went out while under a 2-year warranty, was replaced with an aftermarket set to save $ but we had to pay labor. That set went out a year and a month later. We again replaced and again, they went out a year later in late 2010. Our mechanic replaced the sensors and blew out the system and got the check engine light off long enough for us to get to emissions and pass and then believe it or not - the light came back on, on the way home.
Meanwhile the check engine bulb must have burned out recently, it's been on so long, so even though the light's out I know we've got to address the cats again as it is annual emission time once more. We can't afford this every year, the state could care less about the financial burden, and we'd like to keep the vehicle (can't sell anyway without an emission sticker in-state). Why is the cat going out every year when we're replacing the sensors and keeping up with tuneups and maintenance? We've had a nasty sulphur smell too the last year. (I read that thread btw).
#114 of 122 1998 4runner back sliding cover

I misplaced my back sliding cover and went to a Toyota dealer ship to order a new one and WOW, 618 dollars? Does any one know where I might be able to buy one? I don't need the whole installation kit, just the cover. I really enjoy having it since its great for covering any expensive items, etc.
