I'm fixing my dads 94 4Runner to use as a DD, and awhile back it overheated and my father just parked it. I've looked at the FSM and it looks like its a great time to go ahead and take a look at the timing belt. What other basic maintanace items should I go ahead and take care of while im in there? Of course it a V6 3.slow 2wd with 220k.

It ran good minus the auto, and a whine coming from the front, which I think is the steering pump or some bearing somewhere about to die

thanks for any help

Water pump and thermostat, belts and hoses. You don't HAVE to pull the radiator, but I highly recommend it. I did not need the special tool for the tensioner on mine - the bolt is long enough to get started before applying the tension.

also check to make sure that the timing is set to 10*, change out the spark plugs, oil and filter. Also wouldn't hurt to flush the tranny

Yeah im sure that oil has been in there over a year now but it only had like 2k since it was changed. I flushed the tranny not to long ago and my even swap in a r150 5spd I have in my garage later down the road and SAS it.

If it had overheating problems I would watch the headgasket as those are very sensative :xcrybaby:
Yeah I thought of that but it overheated on me and I shut it off as soon as I noticed it getting too hot. I checked the oil to see if any water got in there and rad fluid but both looked good. And didnt see any white smoke from the exhaust
