Nope not rotten eggs. Maybe more like the smell of metal polish in a way. You can't breathe too much of it or you feel like you're damaging your lungs (at least that's how it makes me feel) or best case scenario get high.

Thank you for all the responses.

Some googling leads me to believe it could be fuel filter related so I'm going to replace that asap. No matter what I'm sure it needs to be replaced.

I'm ready to pull trigger on this pair of 5.5 inch mid-range speakers, leaving the factory crossover and tweeters in place:

DS18 PRO-X5.4BM Loudspeaker - 5.25", Midrange, Red Aluminum Bullet, 300W Max, 150W RMS, 4 Ohms - Premium Quality Audio Door Speakers for Car or Truck Stereo Sound System (1 Speaker) https://a.co/d/fpb8Gf1

My factory speakers are actually still in good shape, I'm not in a rush to replace them, yet..

That being said, I also installed an 8-in subwoofer under the driver seat:

Recoil SL1708 240 Watt 8" Under-Seat Slim Amplified Car Subwoofer with 99.99% Oxygen Free Copper Installation Wiring Kits https://a.co/d/6jlZ3Rk

The sub really rounds out the bottom end, and my Pioneer Bt4200 has a loudness feature that almost obviates the need for a subwoofer.

Hey everybody, just bought a 2000 T4R Limited and am excited to join the community. Have only done a few minor things so far: new nokian outpost tires (road force balance was NEEDED and made a huge difference with shaking at higher speeds), replacing rear hood struts as soon as they come in, and will be doing front brakes and rotors with akebono pads and centric rotors.

No big plans for it yet, but feel free to send any tips for upgrades that made a huge improvement over stock. Only has 109k miles with mint factory paint and I'm amped to see where it takes me.

Welcome to the forum. The two biggest failure points are the transmission cooler located in the radiator and the lower ball joints. When either of those fail it gets very expensive.

If your radiator plastic is brown or the coolant looks gross then I would suggest replacing your radiator and radiator cap. Generally recommended service interval for an OEM/Denso radiator is 10 years/100k miles. When the transmission cooler in the radiator fails it causes coolant to get into your transmission and ruins the transmission unless caught very quickly.

If you don't know when the lower ball joints were replaced (if they have been replaced) then I would recommend replacing the lower ball joints and lower ball joint bolts with OEM only. To accurately check your lower ball joints for wear is a whole procedure and requires a dial indicator. It's easier just to err on the side of caution and replace them if they are old or unknown. Generally recommended service interval is 10 years/100k miles. When a lower ball joint failure happens it gets very ugly and dangerous very quickly. site:toyota-4Runner.org/3rd-gen-t4rs/ lower ball joint failure - Google Search

Timing belt should also be checked/replaced around 100k miles. You can pull the 10mm bolts out of the upper timing cover to look at your timing belt condition. If it's cracked then it's time for a replacement timing belt/bearings/water pump/thermostat.

Thank you! Will definitely look into both of those as well. Going to do most of the work myself, but found McGeorge Toyota has a lot of good deals on OEM parts.

My new 4 runner restoration

I am restoring a 1996 toyota 4 runner limited 4wd and I want to put a front bumper on it but I don't want it to be a full bumper just a half bumper with a winch mount. This is my first car and I just turned 14 and I don't really know what to do.
