SOURCE: Transmission issue - almost no reverse & clacking

I had the same problem with my 1991 sv21 camry, it sounds like the reverse clutch is on its way. if you try to engine brake the car in 2nd or low gear does it hold, or slip?, if it slips then the box needs to come out and the cluch replaced, or is the fluid low? i had spent around $1500 Australian Dollars to fix the issue but with the 5sfe enging im aware that the whole engine and box assem, has to come out as well.

There is an electronic module called ECT under the dash that controls the transmission ( a small computer), however if you had your vehicle serviced in the recent past the wiring connector (a 3 Pin connector) under the Drivers side (LHD) just before the T/case could have become loose or the wires broken, check this connector out.

SOURCE: when driving (auto) in 2nd gear car jurks

If the transmission fluid was VERY low, the damage may already be done. I know on alot of Rav-4's, there is a computer problem, that causes transmission problems. basically, it wants to shift into 2 gears at once, and will eventually make the transmission come apart. BUT, it has to be replaced WITH the ECU because it will just break the new transmission. I would take it to your local Toyota dealer and have them check the ECM and transmission.

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 Toyota struggles in reverse, like it moves very slowly. Could this be something to do with gear box oil or gear box itself? Or maybe fuel pump?


If it was the fuel pump, the same condition would occur in the forward gears as in reverse...so I don't think it is that.
Most likely culprit is in the transmission; reverse band or clutches. I would take the car to a certified mechanic that specializes in transmissions or to the dealership's repair shop.

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.

If it is a manual transmission then chances are your clutch is worn out and will need to be replaced. If automatic, check to ensure you have the proper level of fluid in the transmission.

No you are looking for expensive solutions which it may not need ---start engine and make sure handbrake is on hard then select reverse and check the fluid level with the engine running ,i think you will find its about just under a litre short of transmission fluid but you cannot check it properly unless its in reverse with engine running ,and for good measure put a brick behind the drive wheels .

My Toyota Previa after sitting for a few days takes about 3 minutes before reverse gear will work. Checked Automatic tranny oil when hot and is correct - forward gears work ok Thanks Graham


try to change the trans oil and filter possibly need to change, looks like a transmission shift solenoid is the problem or trans computer the oil and temperature will get it last longer also but would likely recommend to have it diagnose by a transmission specialist to fine what causing it
