I feel they owe me the head gasket repair as well since it is all part of the same problem and will file a product complaint with Toyota. If there's a change in noise, it's likely an issue with the tires. The vehicle was not repaired. Only option is write off or new engine. Watch out for a clunking noise coming from the steering. Check engine light, vsc, and 4wd lights turn on solid each of these instances. This is a known problem with Toyota since they issued a technical service bulletin on Aug.
If you hold the air box and it stops then I should go with that, I also had the air intake on the bonnet make a very worring vibration which was sorted with a tap. They are useful printed and laminated back to back when doing your maintenance; Thank you! If the alternator had not failed my engine would have blown due to the lack of oil. Also found oil mixed with coolant. So now my warranty apparently won't cover this so I'm stuck with a car with no engine. Apparently, the cylinder head bolt threading has become stripped due to strain from the aluminum cylinder block. The vehicle was repaired under warranty.
Since then the tire pressure has turned on and gone bad. I am not saying the bolts should last forever. I had similar sound for a week then the oil light came on. Does uncoupling the driveline from the wheels change the noise? High profile makes the car susceptible to buffeting on windy days. The engine sounds very clunky.
I purchased the vehicle brand new from haley Toyota. It's important to keep the tire pressure up to the specs in all tires. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the head gasket had blown and the engine needed to be replaced. Have your vehicle inspected in a repair shop annually to keep it safe. This has lead to the engine leaking coolant. Something rusted and then every time I opened this door it would slam into me.
Took the car to a local mechanic. I called our local dealer to see if the car was safe to drive and I was told that as long as the check engine light was not blinking it was ok to drive the car. The vehicle was towed to a local repair shop who determined the engine had failed due to oil sludge. It was coming from underneath that car and made the exhaust sound really loud. Is this a normail sound? They checked it over and informed me that the engine was cracked. This has rendered our car useless. This caused a loud squeaking sound every time I made a turn.
There was no oil in it. The approximate failure mileage was 81,300. Engine oil capacity: with filter : 2. I told them that the car has never gone off roading, garaged, and well maintained. These engines sound even worse through headphones. The temperature gauge immediately began to rise, indicating that the car was starting to overheat.
The rear differential breather valve rusted closed which caused the rear seal to leak temporarily. The car vibrates and drives very slowly. The driver was able to exit the vehicle and noticed flames coming from under the hood. Toyota won't acknowledge there is a problem with this. Toyota said the problem was traced to the piston assembly, yet I have not received any notification from Toyota regarding this issue.
It's obvious to me the striped head bolt is an engine defect. Small enough to get into tight spaces and large enough to transport most things. The car started making a popping sound. No the gearbox and front diff are combined but the transfer box is seperate. The fit and finish is good.
Had to get that replaced. Any heavy or metallic noises should be investigated. Got the car towed to the nearest shop. The approximate failure mileage was 34,000. This has happened many times. This is the second issue with Toyota rav 4 where it should be a recall.
