Question about 1996 Toyota RAV4
I'd recommend you buy an aftermarket service manual that would have enabled you to check for this yourself but if your engine uses an anti-knock sensor, it has probably failed.
These detect the distinctive sound of pre-ignition and ****** the ignition timing to prevent this from occurring, compensating for the lousy gasoline we have.
I would check and correct soon; if ignored, this can punch holes in pistons over time.
If you can't do this real soon, try using higher octane gasoline, that may help.
