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.

I can get you a diagram on monday but it goes from the alternator to the power steering pump then around the tensioner pulley then around the crank pulley then to the a/c compressor then pull on the tensioner to give you some slack and slip it on the waterpump.I hope that helps.Let me know if you still need the diagram

B2796 is no communication in Immobiliser system, which means you or some one else try to use a key transponder to start the car.
you need some one to clear that code. it doen't affect the car performance.
P0750 is shift Solenoid malfunction, you hsould have engine management light on the dash. this you can call the dealer, I believe this is cover by Toyota service bulletin.
P0420 is O2 oxygen sensors.Toyota has issued a service bulletin regarding the P0420 trouble code that could apply to your vehicle, to be sure if this bulletin applies to your car I will need the VIN# and e-mail to email@example.com with that information.

Chances are, it's going to be either 1 of the 3 switches that need
replacing, a new gas cap or a new charcoal canister. The 2 switches
under the hood are the VSV for CCV and VSV for EVAP. The one at the
canister itself is the VSV for VSP. This VSV for VSP typically goes bad
before the other 2 switches do. Plus, the switches are much cheaper
than a new canister. (BTW, VSV stands for vehicle switching valve.)
PO446 is an evap canister code
