1999 Toyota 4Runner Problems

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Hesitation or Misfire Due to Failed Mass Air Flow Sensor

When a mass air flow sensor problem occurs, resulting in a loss of power or hesitation on acceleration, the Check Engine Light will illuminate, perhaps indicating random cylinder misfire. The mass air flow sensor may respond to cleaning, but replacement of the sensor is best.

Misfire and/or Check Engine Light Due to Failed Ignition Coil

On higher mileage vehicles, an engine misfire may develop and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a failed ignition coil. It is not uncommon to replace all the coils when the first one fails in order to prevent return trips to the repair shop.

Overall it's a good running car I've taken a lot of trips in it. The only problem that I have is my dash lights are out and I can't figure out how to get the dash out so I can fix them.
