I work for Toyota, and I will be glad to provide you with the actual answer:

The RAV/4 product is available in two models, a 4WD model and a 2WD model.
The difference between the two is on the 2WD model, there is no driveshaft going under the vehicle to the rear wheels, and no rear differential. There is no "RAV/2"; both models are called RAV/4's.

There is a lot of common confusuion about how the 4WD works. It is full time 4WD. In other words, it is always in 4WD. It does not "kick in/kick out/automatically engage", or anything like that. It is 4WD all of the time. But, when I say "4WD", that is sometimes mistaken for "all wheel drive", and, in this case, the RAV/4 is not "AWD". What this means is that if you raise the RAV/4 up on a lift, and put it in gear, 1 rear and the other side front tires will spin. True "all wheel drive" would have ALL 4 wheels spinning. This is not the case with the Rav/4. What the RAV does have, making up for not having "True AWD" on the 5 speed model, however, is a switch that locks the center differential in the transfer case, which, when engaged, applies a method of "locking" the 4WD system for maximum traction, but it is still not AWD. The automatic version doe not have this ability.
The last "true AWD" vehicle for purchase was a 1970's International Scout.
If you are considering purchasing a RAV/4, that is a very good investement. They hold their value quite well, and are virtually bulletproof; I do not make any "money" off my RAV/4 customers...
Just "gas station work". Very nice cars. I hope that this helps you, please feel free to comment back with any otherr questions...Glad to be of assistance.

Hw can i fix toyota hilux d4d 3000,2006 model cannot rev over 1500 revs


There are alot of factors that could prevent the engine from revving over 1500RPM. Some sensors like the crank angle or cam angle have to be connected in order for the engine to even start, other wiring loom plugs like the turbo controller need to be connected or the car goes into limp mode and it won't rev past a certain point.

Then there are the automatic throttle controller area wiring loom type plugs near the inter cooler, sometimes people forget to put them all back and the engine won't rev high. Making sure the vacuum pipes in this area are all connected properly, one unplugged pipe, no vacuum, the injector pump relies on the vacuum system and if it doesn't work then not enough fuel delivery, engine can't rev high. Also if the fuel rail is leaking or if the fuel filter is clogged then engine won't rev high.

I would suggest having your universal joints checked out , sounds like a bad joint or bearing somewhere in the rear end, if you can get your speed up to about 50, put your rav in neutral and let it coast if it stops vibrating, it most likely is your problem
