Question about 1996 Toyota RAV4
RAV failed smog..ran car MD and the cause read VSV...How do I replace it?
The problem on your Vehicle related with the VSV.
VSV . VACCUM SWITCH VALVE..
But the problem is you have 3 VSV On your car.
And all of 3 affect the Emission or smog TEST.
1---- EGR VACCUM SWITCH VALVE
2-- EVAP VACCUM SWITCH VALVE
3---- VAPOR PRESSURE SENSOR VACCUM SWITCH VALVE..
All are located on Left side of Engine compartment.
the EGR VSV on left side of the angine.
Are a Small selenoid with 2 small hoses and one connector of 2 wires.
Ok.. But I recomend get the Vehicle SCANNED for get the right codes.
You can go to some autoparts, Advance, Autozone, Napa, Pepboy's,
They scan your vehicle with no charge , is just a complementary service.
With the Codes you will FIX or REPLACE the right part.
OK... I hope this hlep on your problem.
If you need more information I will able to help.
Thank you for use fixa..
