Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4
The Rav has been dying for almost 2 months now. Sometimes while your at a red light or a stop sign, the car's rpm would drop causing the rav to hesitate and die or sometimes just hesitate and then it catches itself again. (sucks really bad when i'm on a busy road and it dies, then i have to restart the engine, feels like im driving a manual and stalling first gear even though i don't, lol.)
Tried Changing spark plugs, spark plug wires, flushed out all the water from the gas tank. Planning to change the distributor cap tomorrow. The car starts Perfectly fine, Perfect when rolling, It just hesitates when your about to accelerate from a red light or a stop sign.
Any inputs to whats wrong with the car?
Thanks, I remember doing what you said above a few times and it doesn't seem to work.
on a side note: if it was the fuel pump, wouldn't it be hard to cold-start it?

Most likely its your fuel pump. when the rpm's start to drop just give the gas pedal a few pumps and you should be good.
