  1. Due to the continued over moderation of a misanthropic insomniac moderator hereon, I have decided to channel my energies elsewhere to help Rav 4 and any marque drivers. So it's goodbye from me to many good friends made here, and thanks very much......it has been a blast. Kevin.

  3. I've obviously missed a lot of what's been going on here, but it's a real shame if you're going Kev. Forums need characters, just as life itself does ....... makes things much more entertaining :)

  4. Contact Toyota UK HQ! My Toyota dealer couldn't be more helpful if they tried. They hav e made the odd mistake in the past but have always keen to correct this. Toyota UK also send out a survey to most people who have had work carried out by a Toyota dealer. These are actually read and acted upon. If your daughter has had bad service, make it known on the survey! Perhaps demand to speak with the boss and if no joy speak with Toyota HQ. Your experience doesn't reflect mine of Toyota. Infact we have two Toyotas in our house purely because of the excellent service we get from them and our dealers. I even had an expensive item paid for 10,000 miles outside of warranty! Can't say fairer than that. Hope you get it sorted and please report back one way or another :)

  6. Mmm see being an engineer, its ineresting to see how people deal with equipment failure. i would temporary replace it with a standard "T" piece but i would still have to know why it failed, hence my reference to cleaning it. If, having done that to no avail, i would try pressured air as was suggested earlier. If i still couldn't get it to function properly, i would carefully take it apart, not with an aim to repairing it , although if it could be repaired all the better, but to see how it was made and why it failed. I couldn't bring myself to just through it away without knowing what went wrong with it and predicting its life expectancy due to build quality etc and if i was going to replace it. What could i expect from it. Hey but thats me David

  7. On the face of it - this is a typical SCV problem and is relatively common - albeit it usually results in a fault code. You say that all was well for a week after replacing the valves so it's reasonably strong evidence that it's a SCV issue. Where the valves just cleaned or were they replaced - if so, with new or refurbished valves - do the heads look new - what was the cost of the valves? Fuel pump is a long shot and unless you've got a code appearing (theres a transducer on the fuel rail that monitors the fuel pressure) - I wouldn't go down this expensive path. EGR valve and MAF flowmeter are possibilities. Both these would be cheap to check out

  8. As stated b Heidfirst your car looks to have had the head gasket failure - a known fault and one which Toyota have remedied under a free extended warranty with a replacement top end (cylinder block, pistons, head etc). This is good news for you because it means that you do not need to worry about suffering with it again.

  9. looks like this car suffered from the head gasket/head issue given that Dec 2010 list. I don't know for sure but that looks like a short engine to me (surprised that you didn't highlight "Block Assy, Cyl").

  11. Although mine is a 2002 52 reg, different model and older, I still have to crank mine for probably 10 seconds now to get it to ' Hot start '. But, yesterday I had a call from a ' new service dept manager ' at my local dealership he has booked my Rav in to fix it for good and ensure it is done. Its going in on Monday 17Th Feb. But on the downside,as its sunny and dry this morning I just looked under my rear suspension and seen my drivers side rear coil sheered off, right at the top.....as another member mention somewhere else on here... More money :-(

  12. Wow, I was expecting 12000 - 15000 rpm for that power. Shows what a turbo can do for you if the engine is strong enough to take the loads. My 5.7l Chevy only revs to around 7000 and produces 400 odd horses and 400 ft'lbs of torque but that's 4 times the capacity! Not bad power from a 1500cc motor that. :) Craig.

  13. I presume such a small engine producing that much power must surely scream like a Banshee !! It must rev very highly. EDIT: Just read it has a rev limit set at 7,500. Lower than I expected.

  14. just had a look at ours and yes the dreaded water leak in the boot on both sides it is coming in from around the wiring connector and also on the black plastic clip below the wiring and towards the outer edge of the car, on the other side the light cluster clips into the black clip. tonight i have removed both of the lights and i have tried smearing some vaseline around the plastic clip and also around where the foam is meant to seal on both sides ,if this fails than i am going to silicon the black clips to the body since they dont have to come out and then i am going to get a thin piece of rubber and make a gasket and bond it to the bodywork so the foam seal will seal tighter my other thought is to replace all the bulbs with led bulbs then silicon the light assembly's in since they wont have to be removed. i am disgusted with toyota's design team i thought buying a 2009 car you could expect it to be water tight ,if i cant stop the leaks then the car will be getting sold then probably go back to a nissan
