the oil should be black,brown or gold(new) with no other colors in it. shouldnt be milky or streaky. the trans fluid should be light red or semi light red.as for the engine being oily its hard to discern unless you rinse it off to metal and drive it. if you mean the oil pan has black oil on it then it may be ok.

That sounds like a faulty 02 sensor. Technically speaking as a mechanic myself, I suggest that they all be of the same age for computer to read correctly. It is expensive but well worth it.

SOURCE: i have a 90 toyota pickup i noticed that i lose

Old cars do bad things, transfer case leaks don't slow em down unless the fluild is low or gone and been run dry a few times. Lifted means to me big tires The stock gear ratio and the bigger tires can overgear the truck. Fifth gear is now too high. Or this problem just accored and it was pulling high gear and now even thoght the tires are fully inflated and the brakes aren't dragging anf the engine is not missing and A bubba tunr-up hasn't set the timing too low or too high , Maybe the exhaust is clogged up or the converter (exhaust) is. Auto tranny not likly to be 5 speed so a manuel is likely, Is the clutch slipping? Lots of blnks open on you question V6 or 4, Size of tires and when dir the problem start afer you raised it? Blocks alot more wind raised and the stock setup with stock tires is geared super tall as in there ann't no more.

Can a subaru engine fit in a toyota estima? has anybody tried it and got successful? i want to change my 2.2 turbo diesel engine to a 2 litre twin turbo subaru engine


No. engine mounts, electrics, ecu, axels and a whole lot of other stuff would need to be changed and cut and welded.even after that you could have a host of other difficulties. not an easy task for even the experienced engineer.

Toyota previa engine problem.


If its in "limp mode" then its most likely in the transmission. It could possibly be the mass air flow sensor.

My 1996 Toyota Previa shimmeys when it is stopped;when


check the tick over speed if its slow, less than 850 950 rpm in gear that why it shimmeys,, the engine is trying to stall in gear,,,if you need to bring up the tick over speed have some body in the car holding the brakes down for you as it needs to be ajusted with the car in gear,,and running yourself over hurts??? the car should just creep forwards with the engine runing in gear with the brake off,,,tickover speed of 950rpm

''thud'' sound when starting


Is the "thud" sound after start then put in gear or a "thud" just after starting. If "thud" after in gear, could be a CV joint wearing out

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!
