#2 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2008 Toyota RAV4
The car involved is a 2008 Toyota Rav4. The engine died on our vehicle. Dealer said it stopped working but would have to take apart the engine to find out why. They said they could not find any leaks but it ran out of oil & ceased the engine. It was only 4 months since our last oil change. People are telling us it should not have ran out that fast without there being a leak. Toyota said they will not cover the repair because it is out of warranty. By only 525 miles!!!! this is our second Toyota & we loved them. We were intending on being life long customers. But now we will never buy another Toyota! especially since I have read other people having the same problem. They need to recall these vehicles!! we now have $13,000 left to pay on the vehicle & can't afford to fix it & have no other vehicle. It was 06/06/13 when this engine oil leaking issue happened.

The car is a 2006 Toyota Rav4. The VIN of the car is JTMZD33V36_. The engine oil light would blink intermittently especially when applying brakes. Upon inspection of oil dipstick, there is no sign of any oil on the dipstick. Brought to a mechanic and had the oil changed (with synthetic mobil 1 as recommended by Toyota).

Around 2000 miles later, inspection of oil dipstick revealed almost no oil again. There were no leaks which mechanic confirmed as the underside was clean as a whistle. Mechanic believes piston problems which will be very expensive to replace. This engine oil leaking issue occurred Wednesday, February 20, 2013.

#4 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2004 Toyota RAV4
The vehicle involved was a 2004 Toyota Rav4. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Toyota Rav4 is JTEGD20V74_. Even though the vehicle has a perfect maintenance record and has no history of over heating, the head bolts pulled loose from the engine block and the engine leaked oil from the head gasket area. This was verified by desert Toyota of tucson. The engine got covered with motor oil and while it was hot it smoked extensively to the point I feared it would catch fire. It did not ignite because the Rav4 was pulled off the road and turned off before it could happen. Toyota corp. Was contacted and they said there was nothing they could do to remedy the problem, but issued a case number. The vehicle is not safe to drive. Desert Toyota prescribed a $6130 repair. This engine oil leaking issue occurred Nov. 17, 2011.

#5 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2007 Toyota RAV4
The vehicle involved is a 2007 Toyota Rav4. Oil hose ruptured on '07 Toyota rav-4 dumping all engine oil. Engine then was starved for oil and ruined internal engine parts. Toyota is aware that there is a problem with this hose leaking and a TSB exists for the fix. However, there is no recall or even a mandatory inspection of this hose at regular service intervals. Our issue was a complete rupture and it would have cost us thousands to repair on our own if the car was out of warranty. It could have even lead to a crash as the tires and brakes got covered with oil. It was Feb. 26, 2009 when this engine oil leaking issue happened.

The vehicle was a 2007 Toyota Rav4. Vehicle identification number (VIN): JTMBK33V67_. Engine oil leak over several weeks. Upon opening the oil fill cap, the rest of the oil came out the bottom of the car. I was forced to have it carried to the dealer because of that. The dealer informed me that it is v v t I hose on engine bank 1 that needed to be replaced, that Toyota knew of the problem but they never recalled to fix the cars, they fixed them as customers brought them in (according to bulletin). It took about 10 days to fix. A mechanic I know who saw the invoice told me that Toyota replaced almost half the bottom of the engine( replaced bank vti hose, both v v t I gears, cam shafts and housing a total of 31 parts. I did not have to pay , but I was very upset at Toyota for knowing that a problem existed but did not alerted customers. It was Tuesday, July 7, 2009 when this engine oil leaking issue occurred.
#9 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2006 Toyota RAV4
The vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Rav4. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was JTMBK34V86_. Huge oil leak! started small, noticed a little on the turn around in my driveway - didn't even think it was my car since there was no oil when I parked. About one week later came home after a short trip and noticed the car smelled hot. I checked under the car and the oil was just running out - the bottom of the car was covered with splattered oil and in about 15minutes - no oil left! I haven't taken the car to the dealer yet - I'm afraid of the $$ and with all of the dealerships closing, the towing fee alone will probably be one I can't afford. I have check the internet and there are plenty of comments on this same problem. Where is the recall???. This problem occurred on May. 8, 2009.

#12 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2006 Toyota RAV4
The car involved was a 2006 Toyota Rav4. My 2006 Rav4 4wd (40,000 miles) began leaking oil at a very fast rate, leaving a large puddle of oil on the garage floor, which wasn't immediately noticed by me. The oil pressure indicator light never illuminated, therefore I had no way of knowing that there was almost no oil in the car. I would not have known there was a problem if my boyfriend had not called me from the house to warn me that most of the oil that should be in my car was on the garage floor. Toyota replaced the defective oil line and says that the oil pressure indicator system is working correctly, but I am concerned that the next time there is a problem with my oil delivery system, I won't have any warnings to prevent me from burning up the engine. The failure date was Apr. 24, 2010.

#14 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2004 Toyota RAV4
Head gasket on the 2004 Toyota Rav4. I took my car in for scheduled maintenance including changing front brake pads, an alignment and oil change. Within a week of this visit my heat wouldn't work, took it back, was rechecked and advised there was nothing wrong. Within a week after this visit it started to smoke, took it back and was advised that I had a leak, needed a new waterpump. Took it for a second opinion and decided to take it back to my dealership. They broke down the engine and essentially advised me that the threads on my head gasket fell and apart in the engine block and was advised to call Toyota to see they would help with the cost. I've heard this is a recurring problem with the head gaskets used in some Toyota models. I bought my car brand new and only had 86,000 miles on it before it was declared a total loss unless I wanted to pay $6,000 to have it repaired. There was a recall I found online describing the same problem but it was for an older version of this car. I believe that they are producing the same defective head gaskets and leaving their customers to absorb the cost. This is truly unfair and in our current economy, I am forced to buy a car for something that could been prevented if they were making quality and reliable head gaskets for all their cars. This issue happened on 03/31/09.
