1998 Toyota RAV4 ProblemsCheck Engine Light on Due to EVAP Vapor Canister Fault
The Evaporative system may have problems with the vapor canister releasing charcoal pellets that plug the vent valve. Typically a Code P0441, P0442 and P0446 will be set. The key code is the P0446 which is a vent valve electrical failure. The proper repair is to replace the entire canister with all the valves as a unit. This is located on top of the fuel tank and is expensive. Our Technicians tell us that for awhile Toyota was covering these problems, but this may have changed. It would not hurt to call the dealer if this problem occurs to see if Toyota is still helping with these repairs.
my rav 4 will start but only runs for about 20-30 sec then dies but then try to start it again and it starts for about 20-30 sec and dies again???
1998 Toyota RAV4 QuestionsSuspect something is stuck in the gear box making 2nd gear inaccessible (1 answer)
Sometimes I can't move the gearshaft into 2nd, and it feels like a piece of rubber is blocking it. Sometimes it's other gears, although it still goes into gear. Sometimes it goes right in with a "chunk."
This problem just started. It acts as if the battery or alternator is the problem. A friend hooked up his OBD and no codes. He Also used voltage meter on battery and alternator and said both are good. What else would be the problem?
