Hi yall. I have been without a 4wd Toyota truck since 2007 and ready for another. I sold my Tundra and have missed it. I am now wanting a T100. I have found a 1997 T100 for $3500, stated to be very nice, but the 4wd is not working.
Not sure of the details, but what is the most likely cause and is it costly to repair the worst case scenerio? Is $3500 too much for a nice T100 with non-operational 4wd? I really dont even need 4wd... just like the look of the 4wd better.
Thanks in advance.

It's most likely the VSVs because they probably didn't work the 4WD system 10 miles a month like they were supposed to. It's pretty easy to fix. ;)
Auto or manual transmission? If manual, check the clutch bracket fer cracks. How many miles? $3500 is a great price. Post up some piccies! :D

Thanks. Its an automatic.
Well he said the light would come on and everything, but its just like it would not engage. He thought it was something electrical.
I am not sure about it now though... he said the engine had been changed and it seems to have been slightly modified and I wanted one that was pretty much stock. I may still take a look at it.
He also said the heater core was replaced. I didnt know this was really an issue on these. I wonder what all has to come out to replace a heater core on one of these?

Heater cores are only issues on vehicles that didn't git the proper maintenance. To do the heater core...you have to pull the dash...not fer the faint of heart. ;)
