  1. MisFiring 4th Cylinder

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Valve cover gasket is leaking. That is the oil. It is not possible to have leaking oil from a blown head gasket. Pull the valve cover, pull the injectors, clean them, test them for continuity like the manual says. Replace the o rings. Take plenty of pictures during disassembly. Man up bro...
  2. Fuel pump/relay

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    If the relays are good you should hear the fuel pump pressure up. The fuse box above the fuel filter has EFI fuses. The fuse box by the headlight has the main efi relay. On the battery another box of fuses. None of them are for fuel. But should be checked. There are only three options...
  3. mep sensor

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    If they gutted it and you can smell gas then what I suggested to do will reveal the issue.
  4. mep sensor

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Two things. One, get a fuel pressure tester from Autozone and and do a pressure test. No less than 24 pounds or more than 50. Over 50 and the injectors are being overpowered or are leaking. The leak down test is in 5 minutes no less than 24 pounds. Injector or injectors stuck open. Fuel...
  5. Fuel pump/relay

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Test the relay or buy another. Not sure how you powered the pump directly. If it doesn't move fuel it is the fuel pump. Maybe clogged. Either way pull the pump and check it out. I have seen where a hose on the pump vibrated off over time. In the fuse box there are redundant EFI fuses and...
  6. mep sensor

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Check the timing. Is the check engine light on? The rav motor is completely control by sensors and the PCM. Plugs needed replaced regularly, wires, cap and rotor. The MAP sensor is a vaccum based sensor. The more vacuum results in an increase in voltage to the PCM which is supposed to tell...
  7. Timing belt Replacement

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    It appeared the crank sprocket had never been off so I am hoping it is an 18 year thing.
  8. Timing belt Replacement

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    I just did my 96 rav4 2wd. The harmonic balancer had 6mm bolt holes. After setting and reset TDC 10 times. I realized the crankshaft sprocket key was not right. It moved some. After discovering the key was almost sheared off I understand why tdc was almost impossible to nail down. On the...

    Thank you.
  10. 96 Rav won't start

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    I can't find a digital copy of the 96 service manual. Free anyway....
  11. 96 Rav won't start

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Starting fluid or ether was tried. I wondered about the spark being weak. I added a ground to the body. I will try the motor it's self. I will have to pull the timing cover to see if the belt failed if I can't come up with something.
  12. 96 Rav won't start

    4.1 Faults & Fixes
    96 rav won't start. Acts like it wants to. I can smell gas, maybe from the start injector. I have spark at turn over. I have fuel pressure. The EFI relay is engaging and has been replaced. There are no Check engine lights. Looking at getting the codes pulled. Don't have a reader. The...
