what do I do-certified vehicle transmission replaced for same problem 5,000 miles earlier with REM trans. It was good until 100 miles ago. Warranty runs out soon. Thanks
I found a page that listed how all the model years compared for the toyota rav4. I'd like to find it again. It gave a rating for each year like "clunker" or better according to problems reported.
I had my front pads and rotars replaced by a mechanic friend in Oct 2014, now only 6 months later a well known auto repair place is telling me they put the wrong size on and they need to be replaced? I went to Autozone and they are telling me there is just one size available. Who's right?
After several resets by dealer & self and replacing spark plugs (not spark coils) still getting codes. Dealer only seeing misfire codes 1 cyl at a time; I am now getting the multiple random DTC and several individual. Engine very rough on cold starts & throwing misfire codes then. On cleared hot starts is fine until heavy load or high rpm acceleration, sometimes won't shift to 4th. Get 1 sec flash check engine and rough rpm. Since all cyl affected suspect fuel or vac leak. Vehicle has 108,000 miles. Have run fuel inj cleaner in one tank, now running dry-gas in another tank at dealer recommendation. Can't find reliable info on fuel filter replacement. Vacuum leak possible too? Getting no other DTC's. Thoughts?

A rattling sound brought me to mechanic, he said it is the water pump going bad, cannot be repaired and because of the location, it will cost $900.00. Can you validate the time they are saying it will take to replace?
Thank you, Richard
Dual heat is set for on
The tire light has been on; I've had my tires checked and they are fine. However, the car won't start. The lights, radio, heat, etc. comes on without any signs of a problem. When I attempt to start the car it won't turn over, it tries to but when it does the car shakes.
the engine light came on and the 4 wheel light and the swerve light. They won't go off. What do I do? I can't afford much at all and haven't had the truck but about 6 mos. HELP!
People that owned Rav4 blew the Head gasket, then let it sit up for a year. When we got the car, the motor was seized. We got it unseized and had the motor turned down and have put it partually back together. The spark plugs that we pulled off were rusted so we replaced them, now the car tries to crank, but the spark plugs are not firing. What can we trouble shoot to try to get them to work.
i have never owned a junk engine until 2011.the sound only get worse every time i crank it in the morning.
