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.

My 2006 Limited Toyota Rav4 has 3 lights on, the vsc, the check engine, and the traction control. What do I do?


I had the same problem. The dealer said it is an emissions problem with a canister. They wanted almost $1300 to repair it. My vehicle had only 45000 miles so I complained to my regional office for help. They ended up providing the parts for free and I paid the labor which was still $275

My vsc trac warning light and check engine light went on


Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.

Engine pings most of the time


You might try running high octaine gas, or adding an octaine boost with every fill up. This will prob solve the pinging. If it doesn't then you may have a timing issue or something like a lifter tapping.

Any idea if the 96 Rav4 has a non interference engine or an inteference engine? I can't find the answer anywhere!


It is a NON-interferencene. All Toyota products with timing belts are non-interference. All Toyota products from 1998 on. with timing chains, are interference engines..

Your ignition timing may have advanced too far. Or it is now where it should be and is making more cylinder pressure during combustion causing the gasoline to ignite to early causing detonation or ping.

Make sure the ignition timing is correct. If it is try better fuel meaning the octane rating.

If you can go up to the next octane level. For example if you are using 87 go to 89 and see if it goes away. 3 of my wife's last cars a 1986 Honda Prelude, 2000 Neon, and a 2003 Neon had some ping under medium to hard acceleration. She switched to 89 octane and the ping went away completely in each vehicle. Each of the vehicle had a good deal of miles on them.

The 2003 Neon has 75000 miles on it now and runs great on 89 octane. About a year ago I tried 87 Octane in her car and the ping came right back.

96 toyota 4 runner won't run


try replacing your fuel filter and spark plugs, engine pinging results from a lower octane than recomended by the manufacturer and dirty gas being burned inside the combustion chamber. good luck!
