  1. Hi Trentmeyer, No i don't take it off road so can do the fix you suggested. My problem at present is to get it out of diff lock. Is it okay to drive with it in diff lock on sealed roads? Some one has suggested i jack up one side of the car so the wheels are off the ground then keep hitting the diff lock button until it drops out of lock. I have tried reversing but still locked. Any other thoghts on it?
  2. I have a 1994 rav4 that that is stuck in c diff lock. I pressed the diff lock button in error and now the diff lock message on the dash goes out but the buzzer still sounds. What can i do to fix it?
  3. I drive a 1995 rav4 that has been jumping out of 5th gear. Is this a common problem? What is the fix?
  4. This is an ongoing problem. As I said in the past message we had to cut the fuel line to get the filter out. We have put a piece of hose in place from main fuel line to the filter. I have removed the fuel pump and replaced the gauze filter. I did find a what looks like a shielded cable behind the motor above the injectors. The outer shield was cut through but the inner two cables were joined and soldered. I have put a piece of wire across the shielded cable and now these are joined. When I try to start the car it tends to backfire through the air cleaner. If it does start it idles very slow and if I try to speed it up by putting my foot on the accelerator the car stalls. I need help urgently on this if possible.
  5. I have a 1994 rav4 that sometimes is hard to start. This is an itermitent problem. Some times the car will start straight away, but other times it just cranks over. I have tried turning the key on then putting my foot hard on the accelerator, the car then starts. We had trouble getting the bottom fuel pipe off so had to cut it then put a piece of hose in it's place. If I remove the air cleaner and spray start you barstard in there it starts every time. People keep telling me it's injector problems, some say it's sensor problems. Can anyone help me with this?
  6. This is an ongoing problem. My 1994 rav4 is hard to start some times. I have been told it could be the fuel sensors in the motor. Can someone tell me where these are and how to replace them 

  7. Hi Trent, have you got any other things I should look at. The car is running okay at present. But occasionally gets a surge in it,

  8. Hi Trent, I did not cut the line myself but the chap that did said no debris got in. It is weird how it can sit running for a couple of minutes then for no reason pick up revs.
  9. I have fitted a replacement motor 3S-FE to my rav4 6 months back and now the car is hard to start sometimes. I changed to fuel filter over a few months back and had to cut the fuel in line to get the old filter out. Some symptoms is the other day I drove the car home from town at 100ks/hour fine then all of a sudden the power dropped off and I could only get 45 ks/hour from it. I also noticed yesterday that the car idleing in the garage at normal idle then for some reason the revs built up to 1500rpm for no reason. Can anyone out there help me or tell me what to look for. I plan on pulling the fuel pump out of the tank today to see if there is anything wrong there.

    leaking oil

    I have a 1994 rav4 3s-fe motor that has just had a head replaced and it is leaking oil both on the ground and filling up number 1 and 2 spark plug tubes. Any thoughts on what it could be.

    leaking oil

    Hello, I am a new member and need some advice on my leaking oil problem. I have just had a new head put on my 3s-fe engine as the head gasket had blown and was leaking oil. I still have the oil leak even with the new head fitted. I have oli in numbers one and two spark plug holes as well. We have had the car back to a mechanic that fitted the new head and he seems to think the camshaft gasket had gone, Any thoughts on this from anyone?
