  1. 4.3 Mechanical
    Hey All, I just wanted to give a rundown from all the research and troubleshooting that I did to solve my 3 fault codes. Background: My Toyota Rav4 is about 10 years old, family owned. My mom bought it brand new, did the required maintenance and then I got it off her for a discount at around...

    Has anyone found ditch light brackets that fit the 3rd gens? Not universal clamps though. I tried a set of older tacoma ones that someone said fit 5th gens with very little adjustment but it didnt work out.
  3. 4.3 Mechanical
    I installed a new OEM front drivers side CV axle nearly a week ago now on my ‘12 V6. It took some serious work to slide in - used hammers, grease etc. - and I thought I heard it click when I finally shoved it in by hand. However, the past week or so I’ve noticed a couple small puddles in the...
  4. 4.3 Mechanical
    Hey all, new to Toyota in general. I was looking at a 2012 Rav4 with the 2.5L and it is 4x4. It has 64k miles, but as I was driving it, I noticed that between 15mph and 30mph there was a consistent high pitched whine that sounded like it was coming from the front. The sound vanishes around...

    I brought my rav4 into the mechanic for a P0171 code, they ran a smoke test and had the smoke coming out of the oil fill area. They told me I need a whole new valve cover because of it. I’m doing the work myself but don’t want to spend the money if it’s something else. I already changed the MAF...

    I'm new here, but have frequently used this forum to learn and therefore try to hold my own at mechanic shops. I have a 2012 Toyota Rav4 AWD. Bought it used around 120k miles, I've since added on about 30k miles in a short amount of time (drive a lot of long distance for work). I was told...
  7. 4.3 Mechanical
    I’ve noticed a high pitched whirring noise when I accelerate, but it goes away as soon as I take my foot off the gas. It almost sounds like someone halfway between blowing out and whistling. It doesn’t change in pitch the more I accelerate or if I turn my wheel, but it does get louder. It almost...

    Hi everyone! I've been looking for a vehicle for my 17yo son's first car and narrowed it down to a CX5 (which is what we have and what he's been learning on for the past year and a half), 4runner, crv and rav4 among a couple of others. Finally stumbled upon this high mileage, but clean looking...
  9. 4.3 Interior
    Hello all! I recently bought a 2012 Rav4 Limited v6 4wd with pretty low miles (60,959) and as I was driving home from the dealership I noticed the passenger side second-row seat (the one without the cupholder attached) was violently shaking/vibrating when I was at highway speed (60-70mph). I...
