the engine might freeze over

It's not easy. In my case the biggest problem was keeping the engine from turning while putting over 1000 ft-lbs of torque on it, to get it off. I ended up having to make my o…wn tool. If you've got more money than time, or you're without the proper tools (lathe and mill), it's probably worth it to just buy the Special Service Tool from Toyota. Unfortunately the balancer doesn't have any large holes through it, through which you could jam a large screwdriver or whatever. And all you have to grip on is the 3/8" tall "spokes" that run from the center to the outside, through which the two puller holes go. But I like working with metal, so here's what I did: I used my lathe to create a ring out of 1/4" plate steel, whose outside diameter is small enough to fit within inside diameter of the balancer, and whose inside diameter was big enough to accommodate the pulley bolt and its socket. Then cut a 3/4" bar of steel square stock long enough to fit the outside diameter of the ring. I used my mill to cut a slot in the bar along it's long side, wide enough accommodate the "spokes". Then I welded the bar onto inside of the ring (the side that contacts the balancer), with the slot facing toward the balancer, to fit over the spokes. Then I used the lathe again to cut the middle out of the bar. (I did this because I worried that if I cut the bar and welded the two pieces on separately, I'd never get it to line up properly on both sides of the ring.) Then I drilled two holes through the ring and the bar, to fit the two bolts from the harmonic balancer puller. You have to measure these carefully and get them straight - have to use a drill press or a mill - or you'll never get them to line up. I then welded a piece of square tubing onto the outside of the ring. I used the bolts from my harmonic balancer puller to bold the thing on (the bolts were too long so I had to make some spacers out of round tubing), put a steel bar through the tubing on the outside of the ring so the crank wouldn't turn. I then had to use a breaker bar with an 8 foot cheater pipe to get it off. I estimate I had to put around 1000 foot pounds of torque on the bolt to get it to crack loose. Which is strange because the service manual says to torque it to 159 ft-lbs.
Your 1996 Toyota rav 4 crank positioning sensor might be out in the car and you wanted to know how locate and test?
On a 1996 Toyota Rav 4, the crank positioning sensor is locatedunder the hood. It is a thin, black cord that will be located nearthe lower front engine. In order to test the s…ensor to ensure it isworking correctly you can take it to one of your local auto stores.A few of the stores names are as follows: Advance Auto, Pep Boys,and Jiffy lube. This would be your best and safest bet to have thesensor tested.
It is on the lower right hand side of the bottom part of the timing cover, with a wire that leads up towards the alternator with a quick disconnect clip. You can use this wire… to check the ohms on the sensor before you start the job of replacement. you must remove both top and bottom timing belt covers to replace the sensor which means pulling the top torque motor mount and the crank shaft pulley, I recommend that I you are going to go this far on the 2.2 motor, I suggest that you replace the timing belt, oil pump seal and front main crank shaft seal while you are in there a new belt is around 40 bucks and the seal kit "TCS 45920" is about 15 bucks and to have a shop do it is about 450-500 bucks there are may youtube videos you can watch on how to do it but make sure you get a book on the procedure to check your work, any shop will tell you they have to bill for 6 hours, I did the job in 3 and I have never done this job before. its not that hard if you do your homework
The definition of the Cold-Cranking Amperage (CCA) of an automotive battery is the amount of current a given battery can deliver for 30 seconds at zero (0) degrees F without d…ropping below a specified cutoff voltage (manufacturer-specific, but usually 10.5 volts).
it has no crankshaft sensor
Eyther use the glow plug cycle time more or get a block heater for the water to keep it a warmer temp.
no power? Try a Battery Jump-Box, Or Maybe the Starter is no Good? But if it dont Crank at all You are having some sort of Power Problem, all Fuses connected, Battery Terminal…s, etc..
cold cranking amps is the rating on a car battery- the higher the number of cca the stronger the starting power of the battery
Need more info vehicle getting enough fuel, air or ignition. Fuel pump maybe bad, Air intake system has no leaks, Ignition system working properly. Just need more info
I have a 1993 corolla and the battery is 390CCA. Some car batteryselectors I've used recommend 320 - 350 CCA batteries.
In Toyota Camry
Thermostat is stuck open.
In Toyota SR5
fule filter needs replacing
Remove the lower timing belt cover and then the sensor should be to the right of the crankshaft pully.
In Toyota Camry
They need to be at 700 cca. I recently had my battery changed and te AAA guy said that I had the wrong size battery in the car (I had 600 cca).
