The vehicle has new water pump, thermostat, radiator recently flushed. When I drive on flat surface temp gage reads normal however, when I drive up an incline road temp gage goes to red but engines shows no sign of overheating.

Sometimes when I attempt to start my car it will turn abs continue to turn then stall. I attempted a few things and finally opened up the air filter area and was able to start the car. I changed the filter Even though it still looked good. Same problem. I too out to the dealer and asked, they said battery was low and I had it changed. Same problem. Any suggestions for what I try next?

New tires 2 weeks ago. Side to side wobble under 8 mph. Steering wheel not jerking, it just feels like the back of the truck gently moves side to side. Gets faster when the truck goes faster then becomes less noticeable above 8 mph.

Piston was like clean of carbon and looks new

Any time temperature gets below about 30 degrees

Transmission was overhauled. When put back. Transmission was overhauled due to water/oil mix up at the radiator resulted in poor pull up on D, worked fine in 2, and L.

4wd will not work

Start whistle sound oct 2016. Got louder late dec. Was told my transmission is going out. The gears don't slip,or jerk. Do i need to replace it or is there another cheaper method that can fix it. It has 211,000 miles. I bought it at 196,000 miles

First I had my 4 wheel drive lights flashing so I had the actuator replaced so 4 wheel drive lights no longer appear and it functions fine. Now randomly I have the VSC off/on, ABS, Brake warning lights come on as well. I have a steep driveway and I am noticing when I give my 4runner power to make hill, my gas pedal maxes out and my tires are spinning as if my 4 wheel drive is not working and I have to back down and retry.....getting no where. I feel as if my 4 wheel drive is not functioning when this happens. Why would my 4 Runner be bogging down and loosing power, and why do these other lights randomly come on. Any ideas. I never have trouble with engine light coming on. Engine never bogs down and looses power on otherwise plowed or good roads.

I ran diagnostics on it and no trouble codes came back

4Runner starts in Neutral and will engage drive and reverse. Will not go into park. I can turn the engine off in Neutral, however since it won't go into park I can't turn the ignition switch all the way off.

I have to wait for my truck to fully warm up for it to shift into 4th gear and overdrive but if i drive it while its cold when she shifts into 4th gear she will downshift automatically and the rpms will skyrocket

First it started out like a lifter ticking so i put more oil in it and it was running fine but a few days later it sounded like something went boom under the hood and now its running very rough i cant even start it

reverse? After doing this several times the car works normally.

the truck had the trans rebuild at about 150k it is a 4x with v6. i swapped out the solenoids thinking that was the possible problem and an easy fix. truck also has an intermittent issue with the lock up on the converter after a bit of time on the highway.

Want to know what other years/models of 4runner can I use for interchangeable parts? body, interior, mechanical?

Failed ABS with buzzing alarm
