Question about 1992 Toyota Previa

2 Answers

What are the bolt and nut locations on a 1992 2WD Toyota Previa?

I have a 1992 Toyota Previa 2 WD with starter problem. I'm trying to get a picture of the bolt/nut locations, and in particular the location of the starter stay bolt. In the 2WD Previa the starter is held by three bolts and one nut. I believe the nut location is above the starter. However, have not found it yet. I have read that removing the Previa starter is not easy. Apparently, one of the bolts may not be visible. Any photo's would be very helpful. Bob

Hi

There is are 3 bolts securing the starter motor, the starter motor is located under the passenger seat area and should be accessed from under the vehicle. The key is to get the van high enough to be able to slide comfortable under the side of the van to access all bolts, only the bottom bolt has a bolt and a nut the other 2 bolts have threads which secure the starter motor onto the engine there is one bolt at the bottom, one bolt in the middle and one bolt near the very top you will have to undo the 2 x 10mm bolts that hold the dip stick first to be able to get to the middle and top bolt of the stater motor. take your time and have some patience you will get it it just takes practice.

Have you tried using a long extension? I pretty sure that is the only way to reach the bottom bolt.

How Do I Change My Car Radiator? WARNING! A cooling system can have up to 15 p.s.i. when hot. Only repair or check when the ENGINE IS COLD or personal injury can result. Always have the vehicle under inspection on level ground, in park with the emergency brake on. Always wear protective eyewear, gloves and necessary clothing before inspection or work begins. Never crank an engine over when anyone is near the battery or engine. Always have an operational fire extinguisher close by, obey all first aid instructions in the event of an injury. Never stand in front or behind a vehicle when cranked over or running. When engine is cranked over keep hands and clothing away from rotating components.
window.google_render_ad(); The vehicle's radiator is the component that removes heat from the engine through thermal heat exchange. It is usually located in the front of the vehicle under the hood. The engine creates heat from the internal combustion that continuously occurs inside the engine, this heat is transferred to the engine coolant, then circulated through the thermostat then to the radiator. Inside the radiator there are many small tubes with cooling fins attached that allows the coolant to be cooled and then returned to the engine in a continuous cycle. Radiators are mostly made of 2 plastic tanks and an aluminum core.

No. Removal of the intake manifold is not an attractive option.
...That will cost you more time and money in the long run.
You will need to replace the intake manifold gasket, and several others.

believe it or not, your last statement is not untrue. I had a long talk with an engineer from ford some years back. You would not believe the amount of testing they do to make sure that parts DO NOT last beyond a specified lifespan. (you would think it would be the other way around!!!) About your problem...now you know the need for proper testing BEFORE making a repair decision. First thing you test is the battery (static charge and load test) when dealing with any electrical problem!!! Never assume anything is good till it tests good!

There is a squaeking noise cming from the back suspension of my 1996 toyota previa. Are there any oiling points or is there something else wrong


Hi. Normally any squeeking sounds will come form the shock mountings. You can try a bit of oil. If you open the trunk, you will notice two large bumps, one on either side. Lift the carpet and find rubber mountings with a bolt and nut. Spray a little silicone spray or other lubricant and give it a try. If all else fails, go to your nearest dealer. Hope this helps

How do I remove and replace a starter from a 1993 Toyota Previa? I am told it's rather difficult and may include removing something from the automatic transmission.


Removal & Installation
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. If equipped with 4WD, remove the front drive shaft.
  4. Remove the nut and disconnect the starter wire.
  5. Disconnect the starter connector.
  6. Remove the bolt holding the starter stay to the upper stiffener plate.
  7. If equipped with 2WD, remove the starter by removing the nut and three bolts.
  8. If equipped with 4WD, remove the starter by removing the nut, four bolts, and the center bracket.
To install:
  1. If equipped with 4WD, install the starter, the center support bracket, nut, and the four bolts.
  2. If equipped with 2WD, install the starter, nut and three bolts.
  3. Install the bolt to hold the starter stay to the upper stiffener plate. Tighten the bolt to 43 inch lbs. (5 Nm).

Good luck and this should take about 2 1/5 hours from start to finish and if you like, use lock tight medium strength to make sure the bolts don't go lose on you.
