I think it's important to note that this type of brake failure only applies to 01 and 02 (and maybe 2000) 4runners. The older ones have a different master cylinder/abs pump unit.

I think a problem under the "KNOWN ISSUES & RED FLAGS" section is in order to warn about the ABS Power Brake Pump Master Cylinder Booster Assembly leak/failure issue and the approximate cost of the repair, common in the 2000-2002 T4Rs. As these vehicles are now reaching an average age of 180,000+ miles (probably higher) I am seeing more complaints about this issue across many automotive forums. Its a $1200 part (OEM) and 5-hour shop time charge, costs that could be the deciding factor between a purchase or "walk away".

My recently purchased T4R's assembly is leaking. Had I known to look for this I probably would have passed on the purchase, despite the great price.

Just my $.02
It's DIY with a $300 part, NBD. My dos centavos worth.

My 2000 had a brake booster failure with about 165,000 miles. Replaced with junkyard booster, been fine ever since.

Thank you to the OP & everyone that has added to this thread. Like some others I am late to the game. I will do my homework before asking any Questions, that I already have. I just bought a '97 that shows 119,XXX. LBJ & Tbelt have supposedly been done. Radiator needs flushed & Trans cooler will be installed before it's driven much. Is there someplace to run the VIN # to see what it came factory with?

Thanks to everyone who contributed to all of the nice guides. It helped me dodge some bad 3rd gens I was looking to buy a while back.

Yeah, that's the cheap booster.

Question re VIN and Rear E-Locker/RR Diff Lock

Can it be determined if a 2000 Limited has the Rear E-Locker option by analyzing/breaking down the VIN?

Thank you in advance for your time; I really appreciate it.

Might be worth adding the Radiators - Koyo vs The Rest thread to the Radiator Resource Threads section.

Specifically, I found this post about the differences between the OEM part numbers super helpful (16400-75181 is the original japan-made part that came stock, and the cheaper part numbers like 16410-AZ011 are Taiwanese-made parts re-badged with OEM labeling that Toyota introduced to compete with cheaper aftermarket options)
