1999 Toyota RAV4 Problems

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.

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???

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

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

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...
