    Today I replaced AC condenser and also refilled the compressor with new oil. Condenser was wrecked and leaked out, looks like oil was also leaked as compressor was totally empty, not a single drop came out. According to Haynes Toyota rav 4 manual, new compressor comes with 70 ml (2.37 oz) of...

    I'm in the Seattle area. After my oil was changed, I asked what type of oil was used, and to my surprise they said 0W20. They claimed that 0W16 has been out of stock throughout the region for a while now and Toyota gave the go-ahead for 0W20. Is this true? Am I damaging my car? I have seen the...

    This started a few weeks back. We live in a hilly area and had noticed that when getting to the top of our road the oil pressure light on the dash would come on and then flash off and on intermittently after that.

    For the past few years, I've not had access to a garage as I lived in an apartment and doing the regular maintenance in the street sucked. From time to time I used one of my friend's driveway to get the occasional luxury, but in -20degree weather there is just no way to have fun doing an oil...

    So my gf had her uncle do her oil change because he wanted to do it for her since he was willing to. But it ended I guess that last time she took it in the dealership they over tightened it he says. And when trying to take the oil filter off with the right oil filter wrench he ended up snapping...

    I’ve been having oil leak from my engine while running for a while now. Yesterday I took off the plastic covers and wiped up all the oil I could see and ran the engine. I checked the oil pump side near the crank pulley and didn’t see any oil coming from there. I Also confirmed the oil pan is not...

    Hello. I have a 2012 AWD Toyota RAV4 Sport Edition that has over 84,000 miles on it and 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. I have had it for over 2 years now and bought it used with only 62-63,00 miles on it from a reputable Toyota dealer in NYS. It has been a good car thus far. Right after I bought it, I...
