  1. OEM Serpentine belt part #?

    4.4 Mechanical
    Looks like there are 2 brands. 90916-A2021 is a Bando and 90916-02668 is a Mitsuboshi. Same price. Should I assume either will fit?
  2. OEM Serpentine belt part #?

    4.4 Mechanical
    I am seeing different part numbers for a serpentine belt on various toyota parts websites for a 2014 Rav4 limited. Anyone have a site they are comfortable in ordering OEM equipment?
  3. Transmission Fluid Change Interval

    4.4 Mechanical
    I just performed a full fluid exchange via the return line and replaced the filter on my wife's 2014 Rav limited at 88k miles. No towing. That WS was almost black. I went with Maxlife. Only drained a little over 2 qrts from the pan so just made more sense to do the full exchange.

    Preparing to flush my wife's 2014 Rav4 transmission (U760e) and wanted to ask everyone which replacement filter you used. Also did you add additional magnets to the pan? Thanks!
  6. Transmission Fluid Change Interval

    4.4 Mechanical
    How is everyone checking the ATF temp after refilling? I flushed my 05 Tacoma and used the 4/12 pin jump method for the AT F TEMP light. Does a similar option exist for a 2014 Rav4?
  7. Coolant change

    4.4 Mechanical
    I can't seem to locate radiator cap on a 2014 Rav4. Is the only way to add coolant via the reservoir?

  9. RAV 4 4.4 Transmission Fluid Change

    4.4 Mechanical
    Did you go with an OEM filter & pan gasket? Also, I performed an auto trans fluid flush via the return line on my 05 Tacoma. I plan to go this route on daughter's 2013 Rav4 Limited and wife's 2014 Limited once I can confirm the procedure is the same for checking fluid level.
  10. Need to use toyota coolant?

    Is 50/50 sufficient for you climate?
  11. What's Up With This Once A Year Oil Change?

    4.4 Mechanical
    X2! A lot of variables impact oil life. Do a used oil analysis at 8k and the results will tell you how much life if any is left in the oil. UOAs are cheap for what they provide. Also, post the results over on Bob Is The Oil Guy | The Internet's Number One Motor Oil Site Tremendous amount of...
  12. Beep when opening driver door

    4.4 Interior
    My wife's Rav4 recently started to produce an audible 'Beep' just as the driver door is opened. This is a separate beep from the unlocking beep and happens after unlocking and actually swinging the door open. Any idea how to turn this off?
  13. 2014 ATF drain & refill plug location

    4.4 Mechanical
    I used this method on my Tacoma which has a check plug near the drain plug. Sounds like the Rav4 does not have a check plug.

  15. A/C light comes on regardless of heat selection.

    4.4 Interior
    I understand that the A/C automatically turns on when the defrost mode is selected but is it normal for the A/C to be engaged all other modes? I.e., floorboard, dash vents, etc.:confused:
