I have a 97 Rav 4 AWD. I noticed that in higher

I have a 97 Rav 4 AWD. I noticed that in higher gears the RPMs tend to go up and there is no increase in speed. I suspect that the clutch is slipping. How difficult or how involved is changing the clutch?

    I read somewhere that to replace the clutch it is easier to remove the engine? Is that accurate or can I unbolt the gear box from the engine remove the clutch that way?

Changing the clutch takes about 3 hours with the right tools and you need a lift

Two problems with '97 Pontiac Bonneville 1: automatic transmission does not shift into higher gear at correct time as it once did, resulting in engine running in higher rpms before gear shift occurs. 2:...


You may have low vacuum pressure which can screw up the fuel regulator as well as shift points. I would start by checking for vacuum at idle, and if low, check for a disconnected, broken or kinked hose.

Toyota rav 4


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.
