I'm going to look at a '95 V6 5spd 4Runner this evening. Any common trouble areas? I got the VIN so I can find out if the headgasket needs to be done, anything else? It has AC, cruise, tilt, etc.

Thanks <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Don't know about rust in those parts but check underneath the rear for possible rust areas. I have a '93 v6 SR5 5 spd and has been trouble free since I bought it. Replace all fluids when you get home and replace with synthetics (don't mind what anyone tells you about synthetics) I have personally tested them and know they are and do make a difference. Make sure the cv boots are not torn, make sure it does engage in 4X4, it has a hydraulic clutch and the shifting should be smooth not rough. Make sure the motors in all the ewindows (if power) operate smoothly. I may have forgotten a lot of things but this should get you satrted.
