Does it spin at all? If not either the starter is bad or the engine is seized. Try to turn engine with a socket wrench on the crank pulley bolt. Anything happen to the truck just before you had starting problems (drive through a deep puddle, overheat the engine, lose oil pressure, blown head gasket)? If it was deep water the engine could have hydraulic lock from water in the cylinder(s), remove the spark plugs and try to turn it over with the starter. If it turns over clean, dry and re-install the plugs. If it overheated, ran with low oil pressure, or the oil was contaminated with coolant the engine is probably seized.

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?

Seems like a bad battery terminal connection to me, try having someone hold the terminals while you crank it. Check where the wires bolt onto the terminals too. Could also be a fault in the ignition switch.

I have a 1992 Toyota Previa. The heater stopped blowing air. For the last year the fan would only work on the highest setting.... now nothing. Is it the Blower motor, fan relay, or Switch??? Any idea?...


the last year, your blower resistor has been bad, now your motor is bad. rap on the motor and see if it start to run, if so, replace the motor and the resistor.

1993 toyota previa. car starts when cold,but if i drive car 4 a while and turn it off it wont start until i let it sit 4 a couple of hours.


Corroded positive battery terminal. Clean both the terminal and the battery post and tighten clamp bolt. Don't just tighten bolts. There's a layer of corrosion that conducts when cold/damp and gets warm during starting and charging, dries out, and then won't conduct.
