Does the limited trim turn signal stalk have the 3 flash lane change feature built-in (i.e. half toggle)? I don't understand the tap to signal feature of the smart flasher if the existing turn signal stalk does not support lane change flashing. It would be pretty cool if this could be added to cars that dont support it.My programmable flasher relay just arrived this morning! I can't wait to play with it!

Ten minutes later: I had to bend up the little plastic "ears" that are on the sides, because the car socket didn't have the holes for them, and they were preventing the relay to go all the way in. OE relay doesn't have those.

You have to be gentle on pressing the stalk. Takes getting used to it. It will take getting used to the flash function anyway, even with a OE stalk that supports that.if the existing turn signal stalk does not support lane change flashing
- The oil catch can is used to capture oil vapors and oil residue before it reenters the intake. I've put these on turbocharged Subarus in the past as they're noted for their PCV / breather systems putting lots of oil back in to the intake. Google the specifics.What exactly is an "oil catch can"? For sure that milkshake is not a good sign. My first thought would be head gaskets (if it were a 4 cylinder) but it could, as you say, be condensation.
I don't remember where I order it, maybe it was eBay. Amazon has similar models: https://www.amazon.com/Engine-Baffled-Separator-Reservoir-Universal/dp/B07JGTTZ16What is that oil separator brand p/n
My buddy and I just did my my front shocks/struts and rear shocks together and I can second that this was an absolute nightmare, especially the rear driver side....that one bolt is literally hugging the frame and had to 17 wrench it by hand as well. I can't see how there is any other way to do this.Finally I decided that today is cloudy enough that I can change the rear shocks. I am attaching here the pdf from the repair manual, in case anyone needs it. In my experience of changing shocks/struts on 6 vehicles (this being the 7th) I can say it was the most grueling one. Ford, Hyundai, Kia... all have provided some technical means to ease this procedure. On Kia Soul, the top rear space was as cramped as on the RAV4, but they provided a HOLE trough the member, so one can easily extract the bolt and free the shock. Not Toyota. The bottom side is the first car that required removal of a additional bracket to free the bolt. And yes, you need to install the bolt in the same direction if you want to be able to properly torque it (torque the nut, not the bolt that has friction).
The top bolt was tighted as much as I could by hand, no torque wrench would fit there. I had to use two 17mm spanners (one was ratcheting, at least made it slightly less painful).
Below are some pictures with explanations.

And, if you were wondering if the OE shock, at 72,300 miles, was still "good"... see this video:
