2000 Toyota 4Runner Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2000 Toyota 4Runner

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.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

I purchased this 2000 4 runner used in 2003. It only had 50,000 miles on it. I have been completely satisfied with its performance and appearance. The only thing that could be considered not so good is the expense for repairs or maintenance, since after market parts are not recommended. But I have had not major problems with it. And it still looks really good
