2000 Toyota 4Runner ProblemsAutomatic 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.
Toyota issued a recall on the lower ball joint due to the possibility of premature wear from improper finishing in production. The ball joints will be replaced under the recall. This recall applies to 2001-2002 models only. Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.
2000 Toyota 4Runner QuestionsI have heard of many recalls. My breaks are sticky/sensitive sometimes stuck. (1 answer)
Many time I need to accelerate hard to get the truck to start moving after a stop. Also on occasion the breaks lock up at slow speed stops.To me it sounds like break caliper issues. It's like they are not releasing pressure? Thanks for your input.
The reason for replceing the parts. was it would run ruff when trying to speed up. but would idle just fine. thank you for your help...
Reset codes and engine light comes back on after about 12 miles with same code. In town and rural miles at different speeds. Engine runs fine with eng light on or off.
