Question about 2004 Toyota RAV4
I tried putting methyl hydrate in the fuel tank as thought it might be water in the gas, didn't help it a bit. Took it to my local dealer and they haven't figured it out as yet. They thought it might be the ECM and sent for another one, put it in Friday , nothing changed, and its costing a lot to try this and that ?
The ECM is usually the last thing in the book to try after everything else. It's also pretty much the most reliable electrical component on that car.
Check spark plugs and high tension wires (spark plug leads).
Check condition of air filter.
Check and replace fuel filter.
Check manifold air pressure sensor.
Check MAF sensor.
Check O2 sensor
And then report if none of those turned out to show any faults.
By the way, the MAF and MAP sensors may require an OBD 2 diagnostic computer to read properly.

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?

turn it to the right and it just clicks? Turn it to the left and it won't turn, right? Well put some muscle into it and make it turn too the left, your dad undoubtedly turned it abot 5 clicks past stop and it's just tight. It will turn, Good luck.
