  1. 4.1 General
    Hello RAV4 World! I have a 1998 RAV4 4Door 4cylinder with Automatic Transmission. I acquired the vehicle last year and it had only 52K miles on the odometer. Now it has 60K and condition of the fluids are on my mind! The car was well maintained, but it came with NO service records, so I have no...
  2. 4.2 D.I.Y. and Modifications
    Hey I have been working on my car and while looking up info I wasn't able to get the info I needed so I thought I would share some things I learned. The power steering pump and belt tensioner can be removed without dropping the subframe. The manual shows this,(for the pump, not sure about...
  3. 4.3 Mechanical
    I've got an '08 AWD 2.4L 4-cyl with about 96K miles on it. In the past year, I've noticed a slight but tangible change in the "steering feel". If it were a vehicle with hydraulic assist, I'd say it just needed the fluid replaced and it would be back to normal. It seems to be "sticking" in place...

All of the lights would turn on in the dash and the speedometer would drop to zero. This started after getting...
  7. 4.1 Faults & Fixes
    Hi all, Just finished replacing my power steering pump on my '98 Rav4 so I thought I'd do a quick summary of what it took to do the job (relatively) painlessly 1. Put the front end up on jack stands 2. Remove both front wheels 3. Remove RH and LH engine covers 4. Disconnect the stabilizer bar...
  8. 4.3 Mechanical
    Check battery light came on today while I was driving back to work. Was still on when I drove home, about a 30 mile commute. About a mile from home, the power steering light comes on and steering wheel gets hard to turn. Once home, I cut the engine and turn the ignition to see if it will...
