Engine failed at 85,000 miles
By rfrank5356 on
1998 Toyota 4Runner 4dr SUV 4WD
3 cylinders diagnosed with very low
compression at 85,000 miles - Toyota
says this is normal wear and tear!
Warranty book says listen for loud
tappet noise, but dealer says that
valves elongate so they get quieter.
Unless owners get a $600 valve adjust
every 40K miles, valves WILL FAIL. No
service buletins were issued on this.
We got the locking rear differential as
we camp a lot.
