Just bought a 1997 Rav4 for the wife for winter time. 160k miles on it, needs some work. Just replaced the cracked power steering and alternator/ac belts and removed the rear diff mount and filled with urethane hoping to fix the worn out bushing. Will be reinstalling tomorrow afternoon. Also managed to fill the bushings in the front piece without removing it. Hoping it works, as it looks difficult to remove. Will also be doing the valve cover gasket tomorrow, and fashioning a gasket for the power steering reservoir lid as it is pretty leaky. Any recommendations on what to use for that?
Seems like this could be a pretty great car after fixing up the little things here and there.
