Hi .

If your check engine light comes on with a running engine then you will have a stored malfunction code, which means from this code the testing tech will know what has malfunctioned, then be able to fix this issue you are having.

See if you can get me the malfunction code so i can help you with this issue .

Kind regards Greg

code for diognostics P1251

Hi John .

P1251 turbo over boost condition.
Suspect fault due to sticking variable vanes on turbo.

Sorry to say but this is a known problem with the RAV4, and its always the turbo at fault.

Have the turbo solenoid valve checked first as this could also trip the P1251 code .

Need further assistance then please get back to me .
