TOYOTA RAV4 DEALER PROBLEM

2001 Toyota Rav4 • 134,000 miles

Hi, my daughter has a Toyota Rav4 that when she is driving on the highway her RPM's rev up and the car dies with hardly enough time to get off the highway. The Toyota dealer put a new computer in for $1000.00 and then she drove it for a week and the it happened again. They are saying she needs a new transmission for $4000.00 but we want a second opinion.

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first. Then have a trans guy take a look at it. You might check your trans fluid level to make sure it is fiull and not brown or black. If it's brown or black then just have trans rebuilt.
