Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4

Oil leak after accident repair

I had a little fender-bender. Rear-ended an Acadian when they stopped suddenly going through a light. Thought the radiator was the only internal problem. Got all the outside parts replaced and the new radiator in only to discover an oil leak that wasn't noticeable post-accident. Apparently something got shifted around to cause the leak. Any ideas? Trying to find the oil filter to check it without pulling motor...

    more info... can't get oil pressure. when the engine warms up pressure disappears. Think the lines could affect that?

    not usually... oil pump...or crank bearings (maybe end of crank got hit and jacked up thrust bearing and/or bearings causing low oil pressure are main suspects i think if this is an internal problem.... check oil filter assembly thoroughly and any oil cooler lines (if any) be sure oil level is up to be sure that is not why no iol pressure... does top end of motor rattle and clatter when running once warm or?

Where is the fuel pump reset on a 2000 subaru forester


No such device. It sounds like you are not getting fuel. Try this:
* disconnect the battery for about 30 seconds. This will reset the ECU, which causes it to re calibrate the engine management.

Check if the ECU is throwing any sort of error code.

Your fender bender may have damaged some wiring, or the repair may have left something disconnected.

Has the car been in a fender bender ? check for wiring going to the front and rear lights to see if on has rubbed into a ground wire or the body. ( even if there has been no accident.)

Trac Off, ABS, and VSC indicator lights are on...I was involved in a front end fender bender but nothing major just the fender and bumper damage. but these lights would not go off. 2010 Toyota Sienna LE...


It is very common for all of these lights to come on all at the same time. They are all related to your Antilock Brake and Traction control system. ABS = Antilock Brake System, TRAC OFF = the traction control system is disabled - either because there is a malfunction in the ABS system or you have turned off the traction control button. VSC = Vehicle Skid Control. - (which uses the ABS and the Traction Control to function.)

The most common cause of these lights coming on is one or more defective wheel speed sensors. Although there are many other possible causes as well. Your ABS and Traction Control system must be scanned for fault codes to diagnose the problem. If you had damage to your wheels/axles during your "fender bender" this may have something to do with it. Otherwise it may just be coincidence that part of these systems failed right after your accident.
