Question about 2006 Toyota RAV4

3 Answers

2006 Rav 4 sport v6

After parking in my garage overnight, when I back out and then shift to forward at idle speed there is a very large clunk that happens in the rear section of the vehicle. This only happens when the car is cold, and ocasionally during the day, but mostly in the morning first thing.

Hi,

Initially, I would suggest have a look at or replace the rear brake pads (most likely). Thereafter, if problem persist, check the rear suspension rubber bushings including the stabilizer bar rubber mount bushings (a possibility).

Of course another possibility (though least likely) is a loose object/component ontowards the rear.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Try warming up the engine in idle for a bit before actually reversing from your garage. Many models have this issue when trying to go into drive straightaway without warming up the engine sufficiently.

Also, dont shift into drive gear when the idling speed is on the higher end. Wait for the revs to fall to minimal before engaging the drive gear.

If these solutions dont help, then there could be a problem with the transmission itself (although I doubt it). However, it is best to get a mechanic do a physical test on the machine to properly diagnose the issue..

Hope that helps!

Toyota sienna clunks when shifting to reverse


sounds like the idle is to high if it lurches, that is why you hear a clunk, you will need to find out why the idle is to high, may be a bad sensor or idle air control valve, there are no adjustment it is all computer controlled so something is wrong , i would think the check engine light would come on by now, go to an auto zone and have the computer scanned for codes.

Is it coming from the tranny for sure? Could it be your stabilizer links? Also have your lower control arm bushings checked as there is a tsb for those.

I also bought a used 2006 RAV4 Sport (in 2008) and I am really happy with it. What you need to look for is for a clunk, pop or knock type noise when you are turning the steering wheel left of right. I noticed it when I test drove it. There is a service bulletin ST001-08 not a Recall. The dealer would have fixed it under the 36000 warranty but I don't know if it will be fixed after that. The 2006 RAV4 has no recall problems for the accelerator.

My honda accord 1992 trasmission makes a bumpreaction when shifting from park to drive


With the hood open:

Put the car in park take off the emergency brake and push the car forward and back looking for a difference in movement of the CV joints where the Axle mates to the CV. I.e.... CV joint travels a short distance before you see any axle movement. Worn CV joint knuckles will cause all kinds of clunking.

If there is no movement between the CV joint and axle when you push the car fwd or back you already know the problem is internal to the transmission.

Car won't go in reverse


If the vehcile is V6,then the trans model is the A540E,and if it is the 4 cylinder engine,the trans model is an A140E.Both are 4 speed overdrive transmissions,and sorry to report that on just abot every automatic trans on the road,reverse gear failure is almost always a mechanical problem inside the transmission because there are no shift solenoids involved with reverse as with forward gears.And you did say the forward gears were fine.Good luck.
