My Rav 4 cuts out when travelling engine light comes on switch off then starts ok Why?

Not enough info yet. Have you tried pulling the codes, that should help give an indication of where the problem is occurring. Take it by an autozone and they can tell you if the ecu has captured any fault codes.

The engine cuts off like its out of gas. It is intermittent and can happen when I am doing 70 on highway, the power starts to drop I can depress the gas pedal and after repeated pumping will sometimes...

Have you scanned for any fault codes? Most parts stores have them available to loan out short-term (5 to 10 minutes in their parking lot).

Without any OBD scan, it's very difficult to even point you in a direction.

It could be electrical or fuel-related. When was the last time you had the fuel filter replaced? Check the plugs/coils for fouling and proper connection. Check the battery connections to make sure nothing is loose.

The engine of my 2007 rav4 shuts down whilst driving once in a while. When it restarts, the check engine light and the VSC comes on. Also, the tire pressure light has been on for a while and I am unable...

OK try this: make sure the fuel filler cap is on tight. Toyota (and Lexus) checks the EVAP system for leaks and if it finds a fault it lights the CEL and VSC. If the fuel cap is loose or the rubber seal on it is cracked then this will be seen as EVAP leak. To clear the CEL etc disconnect the battery negative terminal for five minutes (you may have to enter the radio security code after this so have it available when you reconnect the battery).

You will need a scanner or a code reader to tell you what codes your computer stored that caused the light to come on. If you have an Autozone or Advanced Auto in your area they typically will scan these codes for you at no charge. Once you know the codes you can add them to your post and see if we can help you more.

Engine cuts off

this is a hard one to fiqure out unless the vehicle does not starty at all because you have distinguish if it is gas or spark. The distributer has a module that may be breaking down. You have to remove the Dist cap and rotor to get to the module. It has two screws that hold in place using 1/4 inch nut driver to remove it. You can take it to oriellys and they can test it to see if it is good or bad. If you have a check engine light on you can take the truck to auto zone to see what codes are in the system. They will do this for no charge.

The battery grounding ******** vw's periodically go bad and need replacement, I would suspect this to be the case.
