I have a 2007 RAV 4 that is seeping transmission fluid. It appears that no one has this problem. I drive it highway to work and have 107000 miles on it. What would cause this?
yes...well the connection to the radiator is flexible and they always use cheap- 0 butyl rubber that barely does the job...but takes the vibration from the coolant lines....it is HERE where the failure occurs...grab a tissue and inspect the connections to the radiator to find your leak~
Agree with judge roy. Also you should check all the other "rubber" hoses in the engine compartment for cracks, dryness, splitting,etc. signs that they too may need replacing; Your local weather/driving conditions may be more adverse than Toyota's "normal conditions", so faster deterioration may be noticed.
