Depending on how noisy the car is whilst in drive it may not be a problem or one that can be fixed, when the car is idling depending on the car ofcourse it will idle between 800 - 1000rpm, once the car is in "D" the engine puts load on the gearbox and thats why the revs drop its completely normal and causes no harm to your car. If the noise is an exhaust related problem you may just have an exhaust leak.

I have a 1997 rav4, with an oil leak between engine and tranny. Is that an expensive fix?

Check that it is not the rear of the sump gasket that is leaking. If not then the fix will be to remove the gear box. If manual the leak may be at the clutch shaft input seal which is relative minor fix. If auto it will be torque converter seal and shaft seal . A bit more expensive. It it is the rear main seal then the clutch ( if applicable) and flywheel have to come off as well. All in all about $20.00 dollars for seal and about 6 hours labour.

Timing belt

why do you think its off, , eyes on marks? or strobe light or? what?
old oil turns black , on purpose. so it dont fill the engine full of gunk.
dont run oil for 5k miles. 3k on high mileage engines. max.

the belt can fail because >
1: over 60kmiles?
2: not a gate belt but in fact a fleabay-china $5 belt.
3: cam cog bent.
4: someone set the tension wrong, (top cause , RTM)
5:oil leaks to belt , belt dies early death.
6: running no cover, or cover is cut to ribbons, letting sand and gravel kill the belt in short order
7: spraying belt with belt dressing, bad to the bone that.
8:: im sure there are are other ways to kill it early, but i give up.
9: oops one more , the last joker, failed to put the head to block guide pins back, now the 2 cogs are misaligned, and belt dies. early.

seem all ways, ask me...
what engine, there are many used, over the world on RAV4.

my guess
2.0 L 3S-FE I4 (petrol)
2.0 L 3S-GE I4 (petrol)

Oil leaking on the right hand side of oil pan rav4 1997 already change oil pan

I am trusting that you had replaced the gasket and that it was indeed sitting on there even and square with no chance of being twisted? If so, then you had also inspected the oil pan to ensure there were no hairline fractures from wear, tear or other age induced rust lines which could have had a leak originally? Lastly, the pan on this model fits on one way only or could be on backwards - hey not sure, just an idea.. as you see,. stuff happens...
Best regards

The easiest way to tell if you have 4WD is to look under the car for a driveshaft under the rear floor, that is connected to the rear axle. If you have a driveshaft, you have a 4WD vehicle. No Driveshaft, no 4WD. The 2WD Rav / 4 are, for some reason, also called Rav/4s there is no 'Rav / 2"

Toyot Rav4 1996 Uses Oil

It has to be either burning it or you have a leak. If you changed the oil and overfilled it a gasket may have blown. try pouring a can of engine stop leak. Maybe it will help.

Smoke from exhaust... toyota rav4 1996

Welcome to FIXYA

There in only 1 thing i can think of where the white smoke is from it could be anitfreeze if so it would mean a cracked head or a bad head gasket if it gets worse then you have a big problem but if you check the water level and it looks fine then you should be ok for a while

if it was black smoke or a real dark gray then it would be oil

i hope this helps you out have a good day
