Toyota Rav4 Repair Question
What is wrong with it?
Need more info.
It makes a "thunk" sound and kind of jostles the car when I take my foot off the gas mostly in second gear and often when I'm driving. A friend said that is what it is and eventually it will have to be replaced.
Typically a bad drive shaft will exhibit a vibration. Not often do driveshafts have to be replaced.
Does the clunk happen when you first put it in gear with you foot on the brake pedal? If so, I would suspect a bad u-joint on the driveshaft.
Where does the clunk seem to be coming from? Under you, in front in the engine compartment? behind you? Left side, right side?
Thank you. I don't notice any major vibration- minor perhaps when I'm on the highway. The klunk seems to be in the back and center of the car. is a U joint expensive to maintenance?

yes, I believe it does.
I would guess a couple hundred dollars?
Hmm...I like that flying reminds me during my teens. Sounds to me Mr. SW is right on track with the U-Joint also check for a center bearing psroblem.
A DIY can do it less than a couple/couple of hundreds. Heck, I'll do it for a 12pack of B/Lite and a round trip ticket
