RAV4 Diesel 2AD-FTV blown head gasket

Recommended Posts

I have a 2013 Rav4 with the  2AD-FTV diesel and was very active on this forum with regards the excessive oil consumption. I decided to let it go and live with the issue.

It appears now that this engine has been proven to be a real lemon! It now appears to have a blown head gasket. The first sign is coolant being blown out of the reserve bottle under high pressure. I see there are no active posts on this subject but appears to have been noted in the UK.

Does anyone in Australia have this problem. I haven't approached Toyota for comment. My service mechanic (non Toyota) says trade it in. It's not worth the risk of trying to fix it.
