Have them check the fuel pressure with the key in accesory position and then again after it's started. Most newer cars need an extra boost at start up.

My 2008 Sport Rav4 will not start at times due to

it is your neutral safety switch, no car since the dawn of time will start if it thinks it might be in gear. try putting it in neutral instead of park as a short term fix, but you should get the neutral safety switch replaced, it takes about 45 min for your dealership to do. the car being a 2008, the dealer will probably do this under your new car warranty.

Wining noise low speed around 40 k seems in rear,also clunks into gear from time to time

I have the same problem and had it in to the dealer 3x (1 time I left it a week). They say it is normal. They took me for a ride in another Rav4 that made the same noise. I still don't think it is right, but that is their answer.

Keyless Remote 2008 RAV4

You can take it back to the dealer, and have them change the battery, or go to Autozone, buy the battery and do it yourself. They can show you how to do it. And which battery it takes. It's not hard to do. Good luck.
