  1. My 2002 vx 4 d4 is due for cam belt change, any idea of garage cost on labour.
  2. My 2002 RAV4 diesel emits a small cloud of white 'smoke' on start up, don't notice any when driving, it happens when engine is hot or cold. Any 'nice' suggestions or is it the tipping point?
  3. Despite having my brake pads replaced I still have the warning 'noise' of pads being low, can I disconnect the function as I have car checked on a regular basis & mileage per year is very low.

  5. Usually not, but still happens with radio off.
  6. Noise like brake pad scraping on disc, intermittent noise & even when at rest with engine running. Unfortunately because it is so random garage unable to pin down problem. Could it be faulty sensor ?

    Scraping noise

    I have an intermittent noise that sounds like the disc rubbing, it happens when in motion and sometimes when at stop. As I said it is intermittent and therefore has proved difficult to pin down (it has been to my local garage, reluctant to take it to main dealer at £100+/hour). When it occurs when I have parked it stops when the ignition is turned off. Although it is not a constant noise it is driving me mad ---- HELP !

    Starter Motor

    My 2002 Rav4D 4D is not catching on start up, the engine is turning fast enough but seems reluctant to engage, is this due entirely to the starter motor ?
  9. My RAV4 diesel 2002 needs the turbocharger replacing, anyone any idea how long my garage should take to remove & refit new unit ?.

    Engine whistle

    Thanks Northern Lad, it was the turbo, bad news, quote of approx. £1000 to fix it.

    Engine whistle

    Today my 2002 RAV4 diesel developed a strange almost whistling noise, when on tick over it seems normal but blip the throttle the engine definitely sounds off. Any suggestions before I hit the garage.
  12. The above part left my 2002 RAV4 as I motored down the motorway, I have ordered new part from Toyota - but how to re attach it, the rusted remains of what appear to be a type of flat square fixtures are all that is left. If anyone knows what is req'd any help will gratefully be accepted.

    Top oil on ABS

    Thanks again Ian, will watch & wait.

    Top oil on ABS

    Thanks Ian, perhaps where brakes are concerned the dreaded Toyota garage might have to be the solution.

    Top oil on ABS

    My wife has a Toyota RAV4 XT3 2006 petrol auto, the 'Check ABS system' occasionally comes on but when you stop switch off ign and the on again the message has gone and might not appear again for days. Someone suggested topping up the fluid for the ABS, any ideas, does that sound right, if so where is it topped up at in the engine bay. As you probably gather not technically minded, so any suggestions EXTREMELY welcome.
