Question about 1995 Toyota Previa

1 Answer

A/C Problem I recently took my 1995 Toyota Previa to an auto a/c repair shop and concluded that there is a leak at the evoporator or/at the expansion valve. Is this a repair that I can take on myself or should I take it to the shop. If I decide to do it myself, where do I find the a/c layout of my automobile. Thanks for all your help.

In order to do this job properly you need special recovery equipment to recover the freon and after the job you need to have a vacuum pump put on the system to get all the air out and check for leaks prior to charging
what you can do is have a shop recover the freon then go home and do the work your self then go back to the shop and have them pull a vacuum on it then charge it

you can charge the system your self but if you dont pull a vacuum it will never blow very cold

is it the evaporator leaking or the expansion valve leaking or both?

get your self a good repair manual and it will walk you through either of these jobs

How to replace the drive shaft coupling on a 1995 toyota previa

I replaced my drive shafts on my 96 Previa LE SC, so I know it can be done. If you don't know the difference between the auxiliary drive shaft and the front or rear drive shafts, then you probably want to have someone do it for you. The auxiliary drive shaft coupling replacement is a difficult job. It is covered in manuals available in auto parts stores. $20 for the manual is worth it if you decide to do it yourself.
