The 4Runner remains a sound choice among midsized SUVs, especially with its available stability-control system. The pickup-truck ancestry is still apparent though in its jittery ride, tight cockpit, high floor and low roof. On the other hand, improved emergency handling and capable off-road ability do help offset those flaws.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2001 Toyota 4Runner owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Fuel System

Check engine light, sensors (includes O2 or oxygen sensor), emission control devices (includes EGR), engine computer, engine computer, fuel cap, fuel gauge/sender, fuel injection system, fuel pump, fuel leaks, stalling or hesitation.

What Owners Say

Emission control devices (includes EGR)

"it was a frayed wire underneath the 4Runner between the spare tire and the vehicle. The biggest issue was trying to find the problem because I wan't able to pass the California smog check"

Anonymous, (2001 Toyota 4Runner Limited 3.4-L V6)

"failure of charcoal canister - needed replacement to pass Illinois emissions test -not bad after about 185000 miles"

Anonymous, (2001 Toyota 4Runner SR5 3.4-L V6)

"OBD meter threw error codes P0442 and C1201 after the check engine light and posi-trac lights came on. This remained after two OEM gas cap changes and a charcoal canister change. Eventually discovered this model has a plastic check valve at the top of the gas tank that is connected to the emissions system, and 4runner blogs verified that a small leak in this valve would cause these error codes. I personally dropped the tank and changed the check valve - and over 3000 miles later, everything is fine and I passed state vehicle inspection."

Anonymous, TX (2001 Toyota 4Runner Limited 3.4-L V6)

"Significant troubleshooting was required to ultimately identify problem which was a gasket leak on a rollover shutoff valve requiring removal of the fuel tank. Still a great vehicle."

Stephen K., AZ (2001 Toyota 4Runner SR5 3.4-L V6)

Tie rods

"Replaced at same time as linkage, don't know if there was a problem."

Anonymous, CO (2001 Toyota 4Runner SR5 3.4-L V6)

"Since the vehicle is driven primarily by my wife, the timeline is rough. About December, 2019 she noticed a vibration in the steering that was not an imbalance with the wheels. In late March, she took the vehicle in to a mechanic who diagnosed a worn tie rod as well as a rotten area on the lower part of the radiator and a couple of other small items. As the vehicle is 19 years old, I attribute some of the problems to age & wear. The smaller items are just wear parts. (i.e. rear brake shoes) All items were fixed & the cost was reasonable and the vehicle drives smoothly."

"Starter failed to engage and turn the engine over. The issue seemed to be an electrical connectivity issue. However, the mechanic replaced the starter unit entirely. The problem then appeared to be solved until within 24 hours the starter no longer would turn the engine over again. I felt I was cheated when the mechanic cleaned the electrical connections and the starter then engaged and turned the engine over perfectly. I felt the new starter had been unnecessary but could not prove it as the mechanic had disposed of the old starter."
