    Unfortunately I still have the problem with my starting. I would like to know what are the symptoms of fuel pomp failure. Probably is the fuel pump. Also my speedometre it does not work well. Sometimes I go at 45M/h (aprox) and the speedometre is marking around 15M/h if you can help me I would apreciate.\r\n
    Thanks, Jorge

I would change fuel filter any way only £6 delivered on ebay then i would start looking at glow plugs and relays first check to make sure glow plugs are getting a live feed bad side glow plugs are located under drivers seat side of engine so not easy to get at unless you remove seat carpet and engine covers

    I need to know more about your car is it petrol or diesel the speedo is electric, normal fuel pump failure car wont start at all. i have at other times noticed fuel tanks dont vent properly and cause a vacuum so you get fuel starvation try taking fuel filler cap off. other questions does car idle ok and rev. is problem only starting vehicle and when engine is under load. also is car manual or auto

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?

I dont know why my 93 previa wont run anymore, it cranks and wants to start but fails, i dont know if i need new spark plugs or its the fuel pump. it has 250,995 miles on it. the only problem i had with is...

The high idle is affects it ability to start up, but the main problem is the fuel pump ,to deliver proper fuel to start the vehicle up, the previa is also equipt with a cold start injector, try this cycle the ignition but just dont start we will let it build pressure, cylcle it and do you hear the humming noise thats the fuel pump, cycle it again, now crank it hopefully this helps

Noise coming right front wheel. I assume that it is the wheel bearing. My question is: are there an inner -AND- outer bearing. Also, how dificult are they to replace. 1993 Toyota Previa front disc brakes....

whole assembly has to be changed, the bearing is one non-dissasemblable unit, it has to be pressed out and in. best done by someone who has the right tools.
