2004 Toyota 4Runner

The 2004 Toyota 4Runner is nearly identical to the 2003 model, which was a complete redesign from 2002.

The base engine is a 4.0-liter V6 rated at 245 horsepower and 283 lb/ft torque, with a 4.7-liter V8 rated at 235 horsepower and 325 lb/ft of torque available as an upgrade. The V6 gets 18/21 (4x2) or 17/20 (4x4) city/highway fuel efficiency, while the tow-intended V8 gets 16/19. Reviewers for both 2003 and 2004 have noted that the V8 is only necessary for heavy towing jobs; the V6 is so well designed that it should be able to handle 99% of what is put before it.

The 2004 4Runner-like the 2003-is larger than any of the earlier generations of 4Runners, with an extra 4.5 inches of length and a wheelbase that is 3 inches wider. Somehow, Toyota manages to make the 4Runner as easy to corner as the earlier, smaller models.

My 4-runner Has The Low Tire Pressure Light On.

We checked all four tires and pressure is fine. Is this on because the spare may be low? (Just came on when it got cold.) /the spare is a real pain to get to, so can I just leave it?
