Question about 1996 Toyota Previa

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Toyota Previa. I find it unstable on motorways when there is crosswind especially when it is unladen. I find this even at speed of 50 mph. Is this a common problem and is there any way of minimising the effect of crosswind? or is there any other problem with mt car that is causing this instability. I have been drvind a Previa for now ten years, This is my second Previa the first one was a 1996 previa in which this problem was not that noticeable.

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.

The heater on my Toyota Previa is not working and the temp gauge is not moving even when the car has been running for a while. Please help


the engine cooling system thermostat could be stuck open. This will cause the engine to take forever to warm up, especially in cold weather. The thermostat is inexpensive and easy to change. A new one could fix your problem quickly.
