    My heater core went out in my 04 tacoma and my brother has a 2002 4runner that he is parting out will the heater core out of the 02 4runner fit my 04 tacoma? Also how can I check to see if the heatercore in the 02 4runer is good or not before I rip my dash apart?

    Some things are just better to buy new. It's a fairly involved job to change it in the first place so it's worth the piece of mind to have a NEW heater core...

    Agree. Such a pain in the ass to do. I would put in a new one and pray it wasn’t built on a Saturday.

    Don’t reuse a heater core - they’re circa $40-80 new so don’t risk it.

    Get new orings too
