My 4runner 3.4 finally completely blew the had gasket after a slow leak for a year. With 550k miles on it I'm not planning to spend the money for a head job or engine just to have my original transmission finally take a crap. Lol

Good luck with your rig.

Time to get me a new Tacoma TRD off road.

Talked with a buddy of mine who knows those trucks well, he says that's a steal.  He was saying those trucks are going for 10 to 12 grand, a buddy of his just paid 11,500 for the same truck.  unreal, I guess i'm just to old school because that should be a 2,500 truck.

The same people paying 12k for a clapped tacoma are spending half a million on a cookie cutter house. Have fun being a slave to the debt. :bdid:

Hey all,

Sorry for not getting back sooner.  After cleaning the throttle body and mass air flow sensor I still got the cylinder 4 misfire.  I switched the coil around and it ran better briefly but went back to sputtering.  I was hoping to see a different cylinder misfire so I could pinpoint the coil but it didn’t show a code again.

I just ordered a set of coils and new spark plug wires and installed them.  The truck is running well again.  Have driven it around for the last few days and it runs fine.

Appreciate all of the help.  Now I need to sell it.  It does have a slow coolant leak and I have used this truck as my daily driver and fun truck since 1997.  It has not towed much as 8 have a 2011 Tundra for that.

So it is a 1996 Toyota Tacoma Deluxe (chrome power mirrors and such, sunroof) with 226 k on it.  I was told there were not many of these deluxes made in 96.  Anyways has a Leer canopy and is a five speed manual.  Running boards need replacing as well as the antenna.  I still get about 17 mpg around town and 19-20 when I drive to Long Beach.

Any ideas what I should reasonably ask for it?  It’s not a garage queen but it would be cool to see someone get it that appreciates it and might want to work on it to improve it.

Thanks again for all the replies.
