2004 Toyota 4Runner Transmission Fluid and Filter Change (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Discussion about this video:
To be honest if I were to do this job again I would just change the fluid
and leave the filter alone. It's much less of a headache and you won't
have to worry about the Exhaust which
would be the most challenging part in my opinion. Aside from that it's not
likely a filter change will have any real benefit since it's a closed
system. In addition there is some speculation as to what the service
interval actually is for the transmission fluid and filter is. Lastly be
sure that you have some sort of pump to get the fluid into the transmission
before you get started because as I show in the video there is no dip stick
for this transmission that you can fill through. You also need to be sure
to use the proper fluid, I've got my fingers crossed that the MaxLife that
I used will hold up fine, so far it's been about 2 months since I shot this
video and it seems to be fine. In all it's not a bad job there are just
specific procedures that need to be followed to be successful with it.

This month we're plugging a funny video about the Infiniti IPL and the fact
that our salesman was completely misinformed about why it is called the
IPL, discovering only in the end that he has completely embarrassed
himself. Take a peek if you have an extra couple of minutes.
Hi, this is Joe Tunney at Infiniti of Kirkland bringing to you a
comprehensive catalogue of hundreds of great vehicles from throughout the
automobile industry. Although we specialize in Acura, BMW, Lexus,
Mercedes, sports cars, SUV's and of course our beloved Infiniti product
line, we also like to carry and review exotic cars from time to time like
Ferrari, Dodge Viper, turbocharged
all-wheel-drive cars like Mitsubishi Evo and Subaru WRX, as well as
affordable vehicles that fit into every budget. For 2014 we are going to
make a point of reviewing everything we carry, demonstrating for you the
interior and exterior features and condition, the wheels and tires, trunk
space, as well as an overview of power, technology, economy and driving
characteristics to give you factual information as well as information
unique to this particular vehicle so that you can enjoy a more intelligent
shopping experience without ever having to step onto the lot.
A little about me. I have been the manager at Infiniti of Kirkland since
2004 and prior to that I ran a high end car boutique in neighboring
Bellevue, Washington. For my career I have sold over 10,000 cars so I hope
to bring you far more insight than you might ever know to even ask. I show
you in some videos how to see if a car has been in an accident, how to make
a great buy on a car with a bad Carfax, or why I wouldn't personally buy a
car even if it has favorable reviews. Every once in a while I'll even have
a little fun to keep the videos fresh but I want to make certain you know
that you can always email me at email@example.com if you ever
have any questions or feel I have made a mistake or used poor judgment or
I am truly thankful for the hundreds of thousands of views and more
importantly, perhaps much more importantly, I am honored to have been
viewed in over 200 countries around the world. We all are ambassadors for
the things we believe in regardless of where we were born and from my
little corner of the world here outside of Seattle, Washington I want to
express my sincere gratitude for you having invited me into your home, your
place of work, or for simply taking a minute of your valuable time to
listen to what I have to say. Maybe we will never meet face to face, but I
am forever in your debt for giving me the opportunity to share with you the
things I have learned.
2003 Toyota 4Runner SR5 Overview, Start Up & Rev, Walk Around
Probably the best generation of 4Runner. My favorite being the 06-09
models. Interior is lovely and luxurious compared to the cheap current
generation. The 03 has a 4.0L V6 with 245 hp and 283 ft lbs, later it was
re-rated at 236 hp and 266 ft lbs linked to a 4 speed auto from 03-04 and 5
speed auto with 05 and up models.

Even though the 4Runner was refreshed for 2014, little has changed over
time for the Toyota's mid-sized go-anywhere SUV. That means the 4Runner's
body still sits on a frame. That also means the 4Runner, Nissan Xterra and
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are the only mid-sized non-luxury body on frame
SUVs left in America. (And I'm not sure I'd even call the smallish Wrangler
a mid-size SUV.) Of course I can't go further without mentioning the
4Runner's modern nemesis: the decidedly unibody Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The gentle refresh to the interior consists of a new steering wheel, radio
head units, gauge cluster, seat fabrics and plastic color choices. The new
steering wheel is essentially shared with the Tundra and features a thick
rim, well places sport grips, soft leather and well placed radio buttons.
While Toyota claims that the front seats are unchanged from 2013, they
seemed softer and more comfortable. This could be down to the new fabric
choices, but I think some foam was changed as well.
Ergonomics in the 4Runner have always been secondary to the off-road
mission, and because little substance has changed for 2014 that remains.
Window switches have gained an Auto feature but are still in an awkward and
high place on the door, possibly to keep then out of the water should you
stall in a stream. Radio knobs and switches and the 4WD shift level all
require a decent reach for the average driver. Unlike the Grand Cherokee
you can still get a 7-seat version of the 4Runner in SR5 and Limited trim,
Trail and TRD Pro remains 5-seat only. The extra two seats are an
interesting option because the Nissan Xterra and Grand Cherokee, the only
two rugged off-roaders left, are strict 5-seaters.
Yes, Toyota continues to add creature comforts, and I'm sure they will sell
plenty of the RWD Limited model in suburbia, but at its heart the 4Runner
is an off-road SUV. This is quite different from the Jeep Grand Cherokee
which has been on a constant march toward the mainstream. (Albeit with an
eye toward off-roading.) This is obvious when you look at Jeep's switch to
fully independent air suspension, constant size increases, a plethora of
engine options and curb weight gone out of control. Don't get me wrong, I
love the Grand Cherokee, but if you want to climb rocks, it's not the best
choice. Meanwhile, Toyota has in many ways re-focused on off-roading. The
4Runner offers a myriad of off-road software aids and the retention of a
mechanically locking solid rear axle and rugged frame. In this light,
keeping the old drivetrain makes sense: it's tried and true and there are
plenty of aftermarket accessories designed with it in mind.
The 4Runner may be a go-anywhere SUV, but it's not a tow-anything SUV. The
V6 and 5-speed combo limit the 4Runner to 4,700lbs, down from the 7,300lbs
the defunct V8 model could shift. That's thousands of pounds less than the
Grand Cherokee and even 300lbs less than the Ford Explorer crossover.
However, even this can be seen as a refocusing on the 4Runner's core
mission. As I've noted before, nobody seems to tow with their mid-size SUV
except me, and off-roaders prefer the lower weight and better balance of
the V6 for true off-road duty.
With Toyota canning the slow selling FJ Cruiser at some point soon, the
4Runner will soldier on as one of the last rugged SUVs. For a model that
helped ignite the SUV/CUV explosion, it's refreshing that the 4Runner has
stayed true to its roots: providing a daily driver capable off-road
machine. The Wrangler Unlimited is a better rock crawler with solid axles
front and rear, better approach/departure/breakover angles, better ground
clearance and a lower range gearbox, but the Wrangler is too off-road
dedicated for the school run. If you're one of the few that drops the kids
off and heads over to the off-road park on your way to Costco, the 4Runner
is for you. If you're the majority of SUV shoppers, there are more
"conflicted" "compromised" options out there that will fit your lifestyle
better. Jeep will be happy to sell you one.
