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.
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.

Toyota 4Runner RecallsRecall 16V228000
The vehicle certification label may indicate the improper load carrying capacity rating for the vehicle. This is because accessories were added to them after the vehicle was built, changing the available load that the vehicle can handle carrying. Dealers will install an accurate label free of charge to resolve the concern.
The side curtain air bags may deploy unexpectedly, resulting in possible occupant injury. Dealers will replace the air bag control module with one that has improved programming free of charge to resolve the concern.
The accessory exhaust tips installed by the Southeast Toyota Distributors may protrude from the rear and allow contact with people, possibly causing burning and injury. Dealers will install a redesigned exhaust tip that is smaller in diameter and more recessed behind the bumper free of charge to resolve the concern.
