At traffic lights or merging unto highways the vehicle sometimes loses power or, at traffic lights it completely stalls leaving you vulnerable to other cars.
San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 09, 2011
ER Transmission in downtown Oakland announces they have the diagnostic equipment that helps them pinpoint the cause of a well-known Rav4 Transmission problem which makes the car shift at the wrong revs/times. The problem can often be traced to computer issues that do not require more expensive repairs to the transmission.
According to Edgar Rodriquez, owner of ER Transmission, “At traffic lights or merging unto highways the vehicle sometimes loses power or, at traffic lights it completely stalls leaving you vulnerable to other cars.” He adds that Rav4 drivers should take precautions as these vehicles sometimes rev to over 4000 RPMs and then suddenly engage into gear.
“This is problematic, especially when driving in congested traffic,” Rodriquez says. “There are thousands of blogs where people report these types of problems.”
On Rav4 all-wheel drive models year 2000 and later, owners report that erratic shifting and jerking as well as “engine light” errors, normally on vehicles that have between 60,000 and 90,000 miles.
“Many of these concerns can be addressed by a simple computer fix if diagnosed properly and caught on time,” says Rodriquez. “This is a common problem with the RAV4, and often this type of problem can be easily misdiagnosed as a bad transmission and the customer ends up paying a lot of money for it when it could have been fixed 80% of the time with a simple computer repair.”
Rodriguez says that frequently consumers are wrongly charged for a high cost replacement transmission and after the job is complete, the mechanic sends the vehicle to a dealer to have the computer updated anyway.
“At ER Transmission we see this as a common problem with Toyotas and have equipped ourselves with the appropriate scanner systems and technical expertise to solve these issues without the high cost of rebuilding or replacing the transmission that dealers typically pass on to the customers,” says Rodriquez.
“Usually within a couple of days we can have the customer on their way with less money out of pocket. We want to help people fix their RAV4 problems and we can solve the problems at a more reasonable cost than can be found in San Francisco or the East Bay.”
