First off make sure that it is a clutch problem
there are too often reports that the diy or mechanic has replaced the clutch when the problem was a broken/ jamming clutch cable or faulty clutch master cylinder
the same symptoms of a slipping clutch, not disengaging to select gears , shuddering etc are indicative of clutch control problems ___ cable or hydraulic failures or broken engine mounts
a lot cheaper to check the outside bits first

How to replace clutch step by step on a toyota rav4 4wd

You need some very specialized tools to do that You'll need a jack to hold the transfer case once you remove all the bolts holding it to the transmission. Remove the drive shafts.Then you'll need to remove the transmission, again with a supporting jack. Once that has been accomplished , remove the bolts holding the clutch to the flywheel. I'd replace the pilot bearing in the flywheel that holds the input shaft to the gearbox before proceeding. There are special tools available to do that. Now assemble the clutch disk and the clutch plate and put the bolts back in without tightening them. Now take the clutch alignment tool and push it thru the clutch disk and into the new pilot bearing. position it so the clutch disk is dead center in the clutch plate and then finish tightening the bolts Put a new throw out bearing on the clutch release lever and reinstall the transmission and transfer case. Reinstall the drive shafts and replace any gear oil that may have spilled out of the transmission or transfer case. Adjust the clutch pedal clearance to spec and you're done.

Can I add something other than brake fluid (maybe a brake treatment that is heavier) to the brake fluid to help keep the clutch from slipping on a 1996 rav4

no, the hydraulics is not the issue, its time to replace the clutch. there is no quick fix or easy patch job, replace the clutch (hydraulics dont affect how the clutch holds, they mearly either disengage the clutch or do nothing)

1999 toyota rav4 wont go into first gear, i just repaced the clutch,clutch slave cylinder and clutch master clutch

Did you bleed the slave cylinder? Also, check pedal free play (about 1/2 inch) and pedal height (not sure on your Rav, you'll have to check with Toyota).
Only first gear, or difficulty going into all gears?

In recent times my 2000 Rav4 2000 is having problems with clutch - in 1st & 2nd mainly you put foot down on accelerator and get no go??? also at same time the brake seems to be juddering when...

Hi Steve,
The clutch and brake problems are separate. The clutch problem would seem to be a worn clutch plate and or pressure plate. These will need replacement which means the removal of the gearbox.
The brake shudder could be caused by broken or loose brake parts, but is more likely to be caused by worn brake discs, which will require either skimming or replacement.

Noticed that the revs would build too quickly and did not match the 2004 Rav4 speed in higher gears. 1st gear seems OK. If I accelerate gradually there are no problems. So I'm guessing I need my clutch...

You are exactly right. The clutch is going out. The cable is an automatic adjusting cable. So there is no adjustment. It will require a new clutch.
