2004 Toyota 4Runner Questions
Car will turnover fine, but will not start.
I own 2004 4runner. My question is will the A/T oil temp light go on in the case where my transmission oil was 2 inch below cold? I assume that because of the low fluid my transmission would be overheating.
Recently I have my drive shaft boots replaced, the mechanic forgot to refill the trans oil. I realized that after driving the car for 2500 miles. Many times when it was warmer I would smell burnt plastic and strong heat coming from the car. I finally checked the transmission oil and it was abo...

2004 Toyota 4Runner Reviews

It is still under original gray paint. Still shiny after each wash. I've drove my truck down to CA from WA at least once a year. It has been through rain, sleet, and snow. LOVE IT!
Had a grand cherokee before that went to 167,000 miles. 3 sets of brakes, 2 sets of tires and 2 water pumps. This 4-runner is much better. I have 127,000 miles on this baby and I love it!

One set of brakes put on f...
The best car I've ever had. I use it for a couple of long trips a year, pulling the fishing boat in and out of all sorts of conditions, and a 40 mile commute every day. 108k on it with no repairs. I keep the tires rotated and aligned and have gotten 55-60k each set. Still drives like new and gets 21mpg overall. I'll drive this one 'till the wheels fall off and gladly buy another..
