1999 Toyota RAV4 Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

If the car will not start, the most likely problem is worn or corroded
solenoid contacts in the starter. Usually, these parts can be replaced
without purchasing a new starter.

Engine -- dvd_lny and 6 others

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???

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Exhaust gas recirculation valve control solenoid may fail intermittently, illuminating the Check Engine Light.

Drive Train -- Verified

On vehicles with a manual transmission, worn shift bushings can cause the transmission to pop out of gear, especially when coasting down in 1st or 2nd gear. Replacing all the shift linkage bushings is pretty straight forward and not expensive and will commonly correct this concern.

1999 Toyota RAV4 Reviews

I love my car. I will hate it if I had to give it up since I am always transporting something around. It is easy to get in and out. Since I have low mileage on it and have kept up the maintenance, I have had minimal problems with it. Of course being a SUV repairs are more expensive than a smaller car. A complaint that I do have is the lack of pickup with a 4 cyclinder, the lack of roominess of the backseat and vision blocking caused by the backseat headrest on the passenger side when I backup. Otherwise, I still enjoy my car.

I've been really happy with this vehicle. No major problems. The vehicle is a bit underpowered but they took care of that in later versions. I really wish the headlamps had a longer range though. Any suggestions?
