Sounds like you are taking the oil dipstick out with the engine running.
If true, why would you do that?

#19 of 57 Replace tensioner, belt & water pump?

My 04 RAV (85K miles) has a rattle - Mechanic believes it is a bad bearing on belt tensioner - He also suggested replacing water pump at the same time, Is this typical?

Try to cahnge the chain tensioner. That will solve your problem. It is not the waterpump.

Just an FYI:
After 6 yrs and 81,000 easily-driven miles with me as the only driver, dealer services, and no towing, I had auto trans troubles in my 2001 AWD RAV4 (purchased new).
Dealer said a trans replacement was necessary,
and put in a re-manufactured unit.
Out of standard warranty (5yrs/60k miles),
I am now out of pocket US$3,660 plus state tax.
Obviously I'm not happy about it.
I now have a different view of Toyota reliability and durability.
#23 of 57 vsc & check engine light
Jul 09, 2007 (3:29 pm)
On my 04 Rav 4 the vsc and check engine light comes on. The dealer said just wait until you start the engine four times, and it goes away. Can't this be fixed? It also hesitates some times and I have to push the acc. down, and it then jumps.
#24 of 57 1997 Rav4 engine blown
Oct 09, 2007 (11:56 am)
1997 Rav4 engine blownMy 1997 rav4 engine blew while climbing a pretty good mountain in western North Carolina. There was no warning light, no smoke, and I had personally changed the oil 4 weeks before. I bought it about 5 months ago from a private party. I have no reason to suspect they were selling a lemon. Any ideas why this engine blew? Any ideas on how to avoid it happening again to the rebuilt engine I am about to pay a lot to put in it? Any ideas on where to obtain reliable rebuilt engines?
Thanks to any one who can help shed light on this mystery.
