I replaced my drive shafts on my 96 Previa LE SC, so I know it can be done. If you don't know the difference between the auxiliary drive shaft and the front or rear drive shafts, then you probably want to have someone do it for you. The auxiliary drive shaft coupling replacement is a difficult job. It is covered in manuals available in auto parts stores. $20 for the manual is worth it if you decide to do it yourself.

SOURCE: 1992 Toyota Previa van,Oil dripping onto exhaust manifold, replace head gasket? need a free manual!

The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

SOURCE: where is the flasher on a 1994 toyota previa

The flasher is bolted to the firewall behind the right side of the instrument panel and you can't get to it from underneath the instrument panel. You will have to remove the center console fascia to get to the instrument cover screws and remove the instrument cover. Then you can get to the instrument holding screws and move the instrument panel out of the way. Either a service manual or AutoZone.com will have this information and pictures. Replace the flasher with a genuine Toyota flasher relay. The aftermarket relays might look like they fit but I have found out they don't work properly. The flasher is bolted to the firewall with a 13mm bolt. Take out the bolt and replace the flasher.

ABOUT $800 FOR THE PART AND A HOURS LABOUR.
AN MUFFLER SHOP SHOULD BE ABLE TO INSTALL A UNIVERSAL
CAT FOR LESS.

SOURCE: 1995 toyota previa fuse panel where is it

The fuse panel is located on TOP of the center of the dash, just above the AC controls. The D shaped cover lifts off.
Under the front lip of the large D shaped cover, right in the center is a button, push the button while lifting up and pulling rearward.
All of your fuses and relays are located underneath, as well as your OBD connector.

SOURCE: 91 Toyota Previa AWD - Swap original engine for Previa Supercharged engine

I do a lot of work on Toyota Previa before; including rebuilt engine, swapping engine and transmission and lot of things in between, but never swap a normal aspirated engine to a supercharged engine or diesel. Since i have some experience in Previa, I would like to share my opinion with you regarding your plan to swapping the normal aspirated Previa engine to a Supercharged engine. When you do a swapp like that, you will not only be dealing with just swapping engine, but some wiring, computer, throttle body, air cleaner assembly, extra frame and pulley on the accessory items, transmission as well as a right rear end to get the correct gear ratio to accomodate the new engine and transmission. I can go on even more, but let me tell you this, beside less headache, it would definitely cheaper if you were to find a Supercharged Previa and fix it up. However, if you are totally motivated to do this project, keep in mind, this engine swap will be a long term and time consuming project.l I wish you best of luck and have fun!

My 1995 toyota previa van wont go into gear


Who are they? a garage? Did you drive it in with a bad motor( or it was moving)? There are plugs that can be crossed on the transmission, but you have to really try to get them to reach. Have codes read, if you can.

Bad rear wheel bearings


You do not say which side, but I can just about guarantee that it is the LEFT Rear thats bad. I've done 2 different EGGS w/ this problem. Seal goes out, leaks into the drum, wipes out brakes... bearing. I repeat, on both vans, only Left side was bad. I still have both vans w/ over 200k on ea. & have never had to do the right side bearing/seal on either.
!. buy a new wheel Bering & a new seal fir the left side. From the same auto parts store (ck 1st to see which one will allow this, then buy u'r parts from them) borrow a wheel puller / slap-hammer. 2. Jack-up left rear, & set this side of axle on stable jack stand. Leave other 3 wheels on ground, chock all 3 securely. 3. remove wheel, drum, brake shoes... etc. 4. Attach wheel puller to lug studs as instructed (just ask someone or get directions) You are going to be slamming the sliding weight back on the shaft to the hilt, repeatedly, until the other end of the axle pops out of the 3rd member. At that point remove the hammer, remove the shaft. leave van as is. 5. this is when U take the shaft & new bearing to a auto machine shop/parts house/repair shop/friend's place..... whatever... w/ the proper PRESS to remove the old bearing & instal the new. cost me $25 for this where I went. 6. Back @ the van, replace the b-Seal. try not to screw it up. use wood block (pice of 2x4 worked for me) lite coat of grease on o/s of seal heaps instal. Once seal is "tapped" into place, insert the axle w/ new bearing all the way until it seats into place. May require a firm stab to seat properly, do not hammer it at this point. 7. Replace brake shoes (if using new shoes, replace right side shoes also, just do ONE side @ a time so u have a guide in case u get mixed up reinstalling the shoes)
Worked 2 times for me..... or pay a Mechanic to do for U. This is Not that hard a Shade-tree fix. Luck :) gettocar

How easy is it to fit a prop shaft coupling on a Toyota lucida estima 1991


Undo front coupling first and slide shaft towards the rear of the vehicle. Just enough room then to slide the front coupling downwards may need to use hammer on old front coupling.
Replace front coupling. Replace rear coupling.

Loud noise from rear


My 96 low rumble was caused by the U joints on the drive shaft. The front drive shaft starts near the rear of the vehicle, transfer case. The U joints are non-replaceable, so I had to buy a new one from Toyota. The parts guy said it was the only one they could find in the US. Around $650. Alternative was to ship the drive shaft to an outfit in Texas that cuts of the old U joints and welds on replaceable types, cost around $500. I changed the center drive shaft support bearing too. No more rumble.

Noisy rear bearing?


Is isnt the rear end it would be very bad shaking and wouldnt last long because it would throw a bearing out. So its most likly the wheel bearing and you can just take it to a local automotive shop.
