Dealer changed the Servo Motor in Feb. Now Oct. they are telling me the Evaporator air box assembly needs replacement for $2400+. What is going on?

Looking for a web site to but fog lamps that bolt into my Rav4. Do not want to but them from a dealer.

The speedometer is fine

The motor turns over, great battery power. After waiting several minutes the car will start and then chokes out. Could it be the crank sensor?

Reapair cruise control (does not work at all)and seat belt sensor (blinks even with seat belt hooked up).

its an automatic transmission

I can hear the switch making from the drivers main control but the switch on the actual door does nothing. how easy is it to change switches?

Have been hearing rear end "whining" sound for about 3 weeks, took in for front rotors, mechanic commented on the noise without me telling him. I had a bad feeling about the rear end possibly going concerned about the cost to fix. Any ideas? They said my back wheels could lock's a 4X4 Rav 4. E-mail

i have never owned a junk engine until 2011.the sound only get worse every time i crank it in the morning.

illuminated and no cruise control.

my car makes a scratching noise when I turn my wheel to the right, what would it most likely be and how much should it cost to get fixed

What will it cost to fix my AC? The AC light is blinking and it is blowing out warm air.

Lines travel from this box to the rear as well as to the front and center underside of the vehicle into some unit positioned there. I badly cracked the black plastic box that houses the filter on the outside edge of the underside of the car below the driver door when jacking the vehicle. Can you give me a name for that part so I can buy a replacement?

expect to pay.

The smell is in the engine compartment and the intererior of the car.

AC compressor just blew the other day after showing high pressure in the line. Had begin to experience car shutting off at lights right before it happened. Car will restart only if it is allowed to be off for a while. Battery light comes on. Last night, rear light stayed on even though car was off. Had to remove the lightbulb to turn off and noticed was very hot. Seems like electrical issue? I dont know if the all incidents are related.

the power for the lights, radio and now air conditioning have "dimmed"

was cleaning the battery cable and the cable broke the cable box, trying to find out what the cost will be.

the back door handle doesn't work, can't open the back door

ABS,ESP warning light on

tried flushing the passages of the EGR module, EGR valve and throttle body with carbon cleaner. no cracks in hoses. diagnostic tester shows: "too little flow on EGR system". light came on about 1.5 year ago & started using better gas & light was intermittent about 2 weeks, then went away. now it's back & stays on.

My toyota 04 Rav4 is 90,000 miles out and due for a new timing belt. Was curious as to what the cost might be.

never any problem with this vehicle, till my lady started it this evening after it sat outside in the sxun most of the day.
the pin out showing on my scan tool stated, E1 to D1 jump from the underhood diagnostic box..

Is the ABS light going to blink on the dash after installing the jumper wire ?
What would be the codes for a sensor failure ?

The repair shop is puzzled. Has anyone else had this happen to them?

cambiamos el rele por uno nuevo y lo quemo volvimos a cambiar y quemo de nuevo dice que tengo que cambiar la pumo abs sera cierto

I have a 2001 Toyota Rav 4 that needs an O2 sensor. It is an all whell drive and I understand there are four different kinds. How much should this repair cost me in parts and labor? Thank you. John
