These days, more and more automobile manufacturers are integrating a system for determining the best time for an engine oil change for their automobiles. Toyota is no exception with its RAV4. Once the computer determines your engine oil has exceeded its useful lifespan, it will warn you via a light on the dash. Once you see that light, you should change the oil as soon as possible. After changing the oil, you must manually reset the oil change indicator to keep it accurate for the next change.
