The compression is the same for all cylinders(150), but when I turned motor over, water came out of #1 cylinder only. Any idea?

Sounds like a head gasket leaking water in from the cooling system. Does it run OK? Any water in the oil on the dipstick and a mayonnaise type film on the oil filler cap?

Need to know where the positive wires that connect to the battery of a '95 Toyota previa connect.


The black wire will be connected to the body or engine of the van and the red or positive wire is connected to your starter motor.
You can also use a 12 volt battery light to check the negative or positive wires.
You take the 12 volt battery light and place the negative black wire clip to an earth on the vehicle, then when you touch the tip of the 12 volt battery light onto a positive wire the light will light up.
Then you will know which wires are negative or positive sometimes the key has to be on for some wires to work.

Doesn't start, but makes clicking noise

Your battery is in need of charge, or there is a bad connection (corrosion) at the terminals. Try to jump start, check connections. If you still can't start it, bring the battery to a store for a free check of it's condition. Let me know if this does not solve the problem.

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).
  4. Install the starter connector.
  5. Connect the starter wire with the nut. Tighten the nut to 78 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
  6. If equipped with 4WD, install the front drive shaft.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
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.
