2001 Toyota 4Runner

The 2001 Toyota 4Runner marked the end of the almost-universally panned I4; all 4Runners now came standard with a 3.4-liter V6 rated at 183 horsepower and delivering 217 lb/ft of torque. Let us rejoice! Toyota tempered the power with some additional control features, including TRAC (traction) control, and a vehicle skid control system.

Fuel economy reflects the new power, with 16/19 city/highway estimates. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, particularly with the leather trim. The high ground clearance allows those who still buy SUV's to take off-roading to hit the trails.

Reviewers love the new engine and continued comfort of the interior. Complaints about fuel economy continue, but these are typical numbers for a mid-size SUV.

Oil Filter Location

I can't find the oil filter on my 2001 4Runner with 3.4 liter V6. I looked all over! I read someplace to look in the passenger side wheel well, but didn't see it there either. Can you help? Thanks...
