Question about 2004 Toyota RAV4
I have a 2002 Astra SXi, and my engine management light came on, and the power is severely reduced. This happened after I topped up with £5 of fuel.. I always tend to be on low fuel! Could it be a fuel filter blockage?
The car has also always had a problem with dropping power during long runs, I have to keep the revs higher, and not dip the clutch, but this will often pass and go back to normal (then it would typically re-occur later).
Any help is appreciated!
Keep always half of tank, could be pick up all garbage. can damage fuel pump.

Sounds like you need gearbox oil (transmission oil in USA) .... check your levels and top it up.

I have the same problem, from cold it starts begrudgingly then trundles along in limp home mode, once the engine is warm again it seems to improve a little and by re-starting the engine it can re set the ECU. I have been to Toyota today and it is the SCV valve kit attached to the fuel pump. It could be one of many things though, and if you go to Toyota only they can diagnose the issue using their diagnostic which cost me £43.

You might want to check the MAF sensor(Mass Air Flow) and clean it with MAF/MAP cleaner. I am also kind of puzzled with this problem as I have a 2004 Corolla also, I only had power loss when my MAF went bad.
