1999 Toyota RAV4 Questions
How do I find out if it's a non interference engine? can anyone confirm what the likely damage would be to my car. And how much it will cost to repair if it's just a cam belt without engine damage
Can I do it myself? I have 275,000 kms. showing. Is it worth fixing or should I just keep replacing oil as needed? Will the engine eventually fail? I have always done regular oil changes at 5000 km.
Took to shop & changed EGR valve but it came back on. Had friend code it & got P1133, P0401 & P0171. How can I fix?

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?
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...
