1999 Rav4 - 209,000+ miles. car always ran great - fuel economy not as expected since I had it for over two years. Problem to follow
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: When it warms up the car seems to have clogged fuel filter, it dies while driving down the road. starts back when I put in neutral. The engine
cuts and studders. when the car is cold for about 5 to 6 miles it runs great...
JA: Are you fixing your RAV4 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: plugs, wires, fuel injector cleaner, new fuel filter.. I am thinking maybe fuel pump
but it is not all the time. could it be something with emissions system.. I am not a mechanic at all but try to do everything I can myself if possible. Only started happening a month ago and is getting much worse.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not really
