    It's pretty cool. I'm pretty damn happy with this 4Runner in nearly all aspects. I'm getting a new clutch next week and then I'll be even happier with it.
    I had a clogged injector at one point.

    That one isnt too bad, I have done it twice,! My old Tacoma and my current 4runner.

    Tips:
    -Power tool for crankshaft bolt
    -remove radiator
    -get those wrenches with the ratchets. That saves you so much time. 14mm and 10mm
    -http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008EEYWYE?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00
    -get the stant thermostat
    -Napa has an "Asian" coolant that is red called "Zerex"

    I have a manual so I used a breaker bar. Stupid idea. The driveline stores the energy and whips it back... lol

    Ooo gotta be careful. Another reason I like power tools. There's far more pros than cons

    It must be the 3rd gens that are made in Mexico in addition to Texas than. I might rather have a Mexico truck. Just glad the 4runner is out of Japan

    I need to go see if I have any other misfire codes before I do anything else. Hoping I don't have any and not thinking I do.


    I had a local Mastertech who does work on his own do mine when I did my engine swap. Can give you his number if you want. He did my swap, timing belt, water pump, ect. For $500 in labor plus a weekend.


    My uncles 2011 was made in Mexico. He's had a pretty big turn off towards it once he found out.

    Ever see them at the Norva? They were just here about a month ago

    Quality isn't what it use to be. Gone downhill since they moved. Not worth dealing with. Might as well buy a good battery to start.
    I don't have one of those either.

    Yeah, he's a super cool guy that has his own at home garage and everything. I'll shoot you it via PM when I get home from the gym.

    Put me down for this deal too, plus I'm closer:D
