  1. I simply could not fix it mate so got rid of it. My mechanic tried hard, he had it on his computer and said the problem seemed to be the valve. It was my decision to try the new valve. But my problem was an intermittent one, the rav would loose power just when u needed it most - overtaking other car's etc dangerous. pulling in and switching off the car and then restarting and all was good again till the next time. But I took the boost valve I had bought, back off the car when I sold it and put the old one back on, and it was worse, so as I said the new valve helped but did not cure. I have read where people put new turbo's on and still no good, u cud spend a fortune on bit's and still have the problem. Frustrating. Maybe if ur dad help's to clean everything scv, turbo, maf sensor, egr. U might get lucky. There is plenty of reading on here regarding this Power Loss problem and hopefully other's on here might share their opinion's with u.Good luck. ( Forgot to say, mechanic did mention it cud be a problem with an injector. )
  2. Car would need to be put to be put on a good computer to get closer to the source of problem - I think. The SCV's can be cleaned to see if problem improve's. EGR can be blocked off totally or cleaned. I wud try not to buy any more part's unless I was sure they were the problem, it cud end up being a very expensive elimination process buying thing's to see if they work. As I said I never cured mine completely, boost valve helped a bit, it was just a real pain. Get it connected to a computer.
  3. I had same problem on an old Rav. Think it was two of the injector seals I had replaced, two out of four were no good, cured oil burning and the pressure problem.
  4. Hi Korre. I have one of these for sale, Toyota part that I purchased on ebay. I put it in the for sale section on this forum. Have a look in that section. This part definitely helped my problem though didn't cure completely. The we cap that is missing from the first picture is removable and is on ur own original boost valve, and not critical in my opinion. There could maybe be other possible cause's tho ur mechanic sound's pretty sure. Search power loss problem's on this forum. I hope u get it sorted, good luck.
  5. For removal of the white substance around the battery = a kettle of boiling hot water poured over the substance will remove it completely. Have used this method many times. If battery is in the car from new, I wud think battery is near the end of it's life.
  6. Mike, I read your post with great interest, congratulations on a successful solution to this pain in the backside problem. Though when I owned my troublesome Rav 4 it had no warm start problems, it did have the acceleration problem which I would have referred to as limp home mode. A total pain and did not always put the engine management light on. But it's interesting that the injector's were ur problem, my mechanic seemed to think that was a strong possible contender on my car. Well done, and u were lucky u had a mate with a perfect running jeep to swap bits over with and u were able to do the job yourself, now u can enjoy ur excellent jeep.

    As above the alternator sound's likely, not charging the battery, and possible loose belt.
  8. To my mind the cheaper car would serve your purpose just as well as the more expensive one. 3 Grand is a lot of money for 06. I think them engine's had oil burning issue's, but somebody with a lot more knowledge of them on here will let u know . 112k ain't big miles in my opinion and that car wud be my choice I think. Good luck.
  9. Two picture's of said item.
  10. Have a Toyota Rav 4 D4D Turbo Boost Valve for sale, which I used in my 04, 2 litre Rav 4 D4D. I purchased this genuine Toyota part brand new and used it for approximately one year. Purchased about two years ago. Part no - 25819-27040. Will fit the Avensis and Corolla also, though they will have slightly different part number's. It is in as new condition I paid £215 Asking £115.
  11. There is a 2.0 vvti for parts on gumtree in Coventry. White one. i think 2004. Not sure if that is suitable for your's or not.
  12. The fuel filler pipe rotted on mine and the diesel tank straps that hold the tank in position and like i said eventually the chassis. My mechanic made me new straps and a filler pipe without the need to buy the genuine article. Just by using his head , saving me a fair few quid. Ur mechanic will keep u right about corrosion protection and everything else. My wifes 03 Rav is much cleaner underneath than my 04 was when i had it, i have a notion mine was at the beach a lot. Ur,s will be grand with a bit of care and attention, and i think its gonna get lot's of that.
  13. Well that is good news. Well done - it is a beautiful we jeep, must admit I have a soft spot for the two door Rav's. And the very very best of luck with it. Maybe a power hose of the underside and a coating of oil or the black rubbery paint protection stuff. Ur mechanic sounds like an intelligent bloke. Congrat's.
  14. Hi Jammacat. I just looked on a website for car's local to where I live, bear in mind i'm across the water from you, and an 05 2.0vvti xt3 ,75000 miles two door is £3300 At a dealer with three month warranty. Ur we jeep is two year's older than that and very nice to, but it is 15 year's old. I can't guess a price because I think prices must be stronger were u are from. But do check the underside for corrosion around the area above the rear wheels - the chassis leg's. My 04 two door Rav had serious rust, ie rotten. Small miles also. Just a word of caution. Good luck. And ur we jeep looks class.
  15. On any Toyota's I owned it was never gloss black it was more dull than that. Satin sounds good, and test ur spray can on something before u spray the door frames and see does it suit ur need's.
