Hmmmm.... I see the 2011 manual.... any idea if the oil sensors would be the same from a 2008 2.4 to a 2011? To be truthful, I'm not even sure if I'm still going to change it....seems to have settled down since I changed the oil. .... and no, it wasn't really bad, I change it every 3,000k.

I did... and a temporary version of Winzip to open it. Found the page on checking the oil pressure by removing the sensor... don't see anything about screens. Is there a way to save this file in a different version so I don't have to purchase winzip?

Download and install WinRAR for free:

WinRAR Free Download - Get WinRAR Pro For Free

Once the files are uncompressed, they are in PDF format and can be read with any version of Adobe Acrobat reader. There is no need to uncompress them again.

Hmmm....tried that 3 times but it apparently doesn't get along with Windows 7. I might have to go back to Winzip and print it out. Was hoping to not have to do that, it's a LOT of pages.

I have WinRAR on windows 7 and it works fine.
If you want, you just unzip them in a specific folder on your Hard Drive.
No need to unzip again or print. Just reference your laptop/PC whenever you need the info.

Well...for whatever reason WinRAR was uncompatible with my system and wouldn't work. I did manage to find another freebie through Windows called MegaZip that does. It's available here
http://www.filesopened.com/search.php?ext=RAR
you guys have been very helpful. I haven't driven the RAV much for the last couple days, but changing the oil seems to have settled the light issue down. I'll keep a new sensor on hand in case it becomes an issue again, but so far I'm guessing it may have been a computer glitch after the light was triggered initially. I was a little surprised to learn on this site there is no low level warning. Both the 03 and our 08 would start to flicker as soon as the level was down a litre... long before it should have affect pressure... and this time it occured at highway speeds, not stop and go traffic. Weak sensor's maybe? Hopefully I don't find out for sure...

I have heard that flickering is not meant to be a warming by design. It is just shows temporary low pressure. Still not a good thing to have.
