hi Robert

Looks like previous owner was having problems with turbo overboost which is quite a common problem on the rav.Basically u get to 2500ish rpm ,starts hesitating mil comes on giving 1250/1251 code if read. Loads of threads on here but in my opinion things to look for are vsv as igor says, suction control valves on fuel pump and sticking variable vanes on turbo.

vsv comes apart fairly easily. Press the tabs together on the end plate and gently blow air up opposite pipe and it should come apart. I have some pics somewhere if it will help.

hi dognobler i changed the vsv it did not cure the problem i shall have to keep trying, do you know what the unit does that fits before the turbo sensor the vacum pipe goes from the manifold to this unit then the vacum pipe goes to turbo pressure sensor

Took the Rav4 on holiday, 500 miles around Tip. Cleared out my Turbo troubles @ a Cost of £120 pounds in fuel £1.44 on diesel. Better then £500 recondition + fitting if not more.

Took 'A' Roads on the way down come back on 'M' Roads, Hitting 70- 100 + mile short controlled boost.

Please don't try this @ Home it may get you some points + fine, Towards the up keep of pot holes Roads. :thumbsup:
