Looking at a 03 4Runner, 4WD, V6 with 187,000 miles on it for $6,700.
The guy said the previous owner told him he replaced the timing chain but he wasnt sure if the head gasket was done. Is it safe to assume both were done at that time or should I keep looking?
Others have given you good advice, but I'd also be questioning why the timing chain had to be replaced with less than 200k? IIRC, poor maintenance (oil change cadence, etc.) is usually the cause of timing chain issues so that would be a red flag for me that warrants deeper investigation.

Good luck!
