SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 1999 Rav 4. Replaced the timing belt at 90,000 m.

If all other parts were were new this would be true, however as things wear, pullys and other parts insdie the timing cover can shorten the life of the belt. If he looked and saw something and he thought it need to be changed then let him change it and ask him why. It may need a new pully to make the belt last longer. On some engines there are things that wear the belt out the older they get. Also factory belts tend to last longer than after market, some people have the cheep belt installed to save money but in the end they pay to replace the belt sooner. Hope this helps, alwasy ask you mechanic why he is doing it. If he does not give you a reason then go somewhere else.

I am currently in the process of buying a 2004 Toyota Rav 4. 4 door, manual. It has 104,000 on the clock and I need to know whether the timing belt needed to be done at the 100,000 ks mark or if it in...

2004 Rav 4 has a timing belt and not a chain and it can last you about 160k's depending how it was used but replacing it at 100 is a safe margin.Factory installed belts are due for a change at 140k's.

How do I replace the fan and air condition belts on a RAV 4 Toyota 1999

Loosen off the tensioner pulley in order to loosen the belt. First, loosen the bolt in the center of the pulley in order for it to be able to move, then turn the long adjuster bolt off to the side of the pulley in the bracket, and then the position of the pulley will change, allowing you to loosen it enough to get the belt off. Kind of hard to explain, but look for the pulley that is all by itself that doesn't turn anything...that is the one that adjusts the belt.
