1998 Toyota 4Runner Problems
The evaporative emission (EVAP) system may illuminate the vehicle's Check Engine Light due to intermittent failure of the charcoal canister purge control solenoid valve or canister failure. Upon failure of the charcoal canister, debris may circulate around the EVAP system causing other emission control problems.
If the car will not start, the most likely problem is worn or corroded solenoid contacts in the starter. Usually, these parts can be replaced without purchasing a new starter.
The heater circuit for the oxygen sensor tends to have a higher than normal failure rate. Failure of the oxygen sensor heater circuit will illuminate the Check Engine Light. The internal oxygen sensor heater cannot be repaired, the failed sensor should be replaced to correct this concern.

I bought my 3rd used 4runner in 2002 (a 1998) with 40,000 + - miles. It now has 178,000. However, the body has a LOT of rust. I hope they now make them more Vermont friendly or any place where road salt is a necessity in winter. The only other fault I've had is with the brakes. Overall, I have loved it and it has basically been trouble free. I would buy another if they were more affordable.
