Due to new technologies in newer vehicles the term Tune up has a very loose definition. Most major full service auto shops will tell you it is just changing the spark plugs. As new vehicles are not equipped with a carberator. My personal opinion differs from vehicle to vehicle. To help you I posted a picture on MySpace for you. (got nothin else to do.)

For best results,
Replace the following
Spark plugs,
Ignition wires,
Distributor cap,
Rotor,
Air filter,
Fuel filter.

The fuel filter is on the undercarriage near the fuel tank.

Check the upper and lower hoses for any visual cracks or soft spots.

Check the serpentine belt for any cracks, missing grooves, or exposed threads. Be sure to check both sides. MAP (motorist assurance program) states that any multi-rib belt with 8 cracks or more in a one inch span requires replacement.

Call your autoparts store and see if they carry a fuel system cleaning kit. These are absolutely wonderful. Every kit is a little different, but the staff at your local autoparts store should be able to walk you through the procedure. This should be the last thing to do.

I have posted a few pictures of belt routings, engine diagram, and fuel filter at www.myspace.com/hardinpride

let me know if this helps

1999 Rav4 has a 2-Wheel drive option. If you have 4-Wheel drive (check with dealer) there is no need to set it to 4-Wheel drive as the 4-Wheel drive mode is controled by the Powertrain Control Module (On-Board Computer) as needed.

2001 Rav4 tune-up should include what?


With the cars computers and electronic fuel controls and ignition controls, about all that is needed any more for a tune up is to replace the spark plugs and or the spark plug wires. You can have the injectors cleaned, or add a fuel additive / injector cleaner in your tank. But thats about it. Check any belts and change the oil.
