    Hi all. Last fall I purchased a 2011 Rav4 AWD 4 cylinder with about 120k miles. From the start I was having vibration issues. Was able to replace torque converter which solved my main problems related to grinding/vibration at around 35-45 mph, but I need help diagnosing another noise that is...
