I think there was a recall on this model and year. Try calling Toyota dealership and ask about the dealership fixing it for nothing.

I have a 2006 toyota Rav 4 and all the engine warning lights go on, lights reset and after a few days come on again. What can it be?

You need to start with a code. If it says an o2 sensor B1S2 4 cyl replace sensor 1 first. As it may be tricking it. If it is a P0420. Catalyst inefficiency. Clean injectors and add extra cleaner to a low tank of fuel and drive are high rpm's. And use better fuel. Go to a corner garage and check the codes. This takes about 10 seconds and should be free. If your garage charges. You can buy a code reader for about $50 -$80. Plug it in and it tells you the code

I have a 2007 rav 4 the engine light will flash and the rav feels rough the engine or trans won't shift then it stops and works fine

The flashing check engine light means there is a serious problem with the performance of the engine. You need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes next.

My toyota rav 4 engine stalls sometime when driving after the engine light switches on. I then need to turn the ignition a couple of times for it to start. Any help?

From little info given, I suspect it is overdue a service or it has been done by a non Toyota garage, it needs a laptop to tell it that a service has been done, to get you going, switch it off, open door, close it, and then re-start

How do you reset the check engine light on a 2006 Toyota RAV 4? The dealership wants around $500 to do a tune up (which will reset the light) but I don't just have $500 laying around.

buy an OBD II scanner from your local parts house for 60-300 bucks and reset it or go to the parts house and see if they wont rerset it for free.....ooh but the way it may come back on in 5 secounds of the problem wasnt fixed...have fun

My rav 4 idles real low and kills the care. what could cause the problem?

If low all of the time then have the idle raised. If fluctuating up and down then probably the IAC sensor. You might try cleaning the throttle body real good. Let it air out before you put air intake assembly back on and start, will make smoke. Also the will help clean the TPS. Check for leaks also with starter fluid (be careful). Spray on hoses and if engine RPM's go up you found leak.

Driving with/without O/D

drive with it engaged.your engine will work less on the highway and give you better gas mileage.the switch is there for towing or when you need that extra pulling power because it stays in third gear.
