When was last tune up? Plugs, wires, ALL filters & fluids especially fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it and AVOID cheap gas.

    Yes on all the above also if you have kept up with this then a diagnostic check is in order also have you checked the fuel regulator and fuel lines for leaks most discount auto parts have a code reader but I would not totaly depend on what they tell you an experianced mechanic is always in order to read and check these out as it cold be a lot of differant things going on

It is worth removing and checking the air idle valve, they do become sticky and blocked sometimes, this will cause some noticeable loss of economy especially on cold and short journeys, you can clean the valve with brake cleaner once removed, but you will need to buy a new gasket as the old one will break or stretch when you take it off.

The problem is the ECU (89661-42xxx). It must be either replaced or repaired. Mine was sent to www.otherdeal.com
and was repaired. Buying a new one was way too unafordable for me (alost $1500 ---USED, NOT EVEN NEW---).

Filter should be on drivers side of passenger side of car directly between the doors. To change shut off fuel pump relay switch in trunk, remove the clips and change the filter.

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.
