I have a 2002 Tacoma 4cly. 2.7 liter. I bought this truck from my brother and I was planning on fixing it up but I just don't have time for it. I would like to sell it. This truck has 220,000 miles. There are things wrong with it. I am going to be as honest as I can be so here goes. I had the clutch replaced this past fall. It cost about $900 for the kit and labor. This past weekend when I let the clutch out and the truck was in neutral I could hear a noise. I am not a mechanic and don't know a thing about how a clutch works. I took it back to the shop where I had it repaired and the mechanic seems to think it could be a bearing of some sort in the transmission. The noise is very faint and most of the time I don't hear it at all. The truck is still there and I am picking it up this weekend. I will post more pics on Sunday. I will have him write down what he thinks the problem is and post it.
Next the check engine light was on and I had the same mechanic install the "upstream" and "downstream" O2 sensors. He said one is in the front I think that is the upstream and one is in the back, I think that is the downstream. You guys probably know better than I do. He tells me this fixed the engine light coming on.
Next the interior is pretty dirty and the drivers seat is ripped a little. Again I will post pics.
Last the 4wd was not working. I had this fixed. He said it was the actuator and a relay that was the problem.Cost about $650 and the work was done a few weeks ago.
There was an exhaust leak coming from the manifold and I had the manifold replaced. No more leak.
This is a great project truck for someone who wants to buy it and fix it up.Mostly you will need to fix up the interior.The exterior is in pretty good shape. There is a dent near the drivers mirror that looks like could be pulled out pretty easily. I really enjoy driving the truck and it runs well. I have been driving it back and forth to work. I wish I had the time an money to put into it because it has a lot of potenital. If you are interested in buying it all I can say is you will need to fix it up if you want a "nice" truck. Or you can drive it as is. I am selling as is. If you want a nicer truck you will spend more money but if you want the truck to fix up this is a good one for just that. If interested send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are really interested after you email I will give you my phone number and we can discuss it. I will get more pics this weekend. Probably Sunday. The pictures I am posting right now where taken a while back.I live in Charlotte, NC area. You will have to pick it up if you purchase it.
