The toyota previa uses a formed silicone gasket for the valve cover and the cover is held in place by metric shoulder bolts ( 10mm). The valve gasket leaks because you can't get enough preload on the bolts to re-seat the old gasket when it gets old and shrinks. The shoulder bolts only allow you to tighten the gasket enough to seat the shoulder on the bolt. If you continue to torque down the suspected bolts, you will snap the bolt off ( don't ask me how I know this ). You can either 1.)replace the old gasket with a new one or 2.) remove the existing bolts around the leak area and put in new metric bolts that do not have a shoulder. You may want to put in a small sleeve into the existing bolt hole but shorter than the thickness of the valve cover to account for the smaller diameter bolt. You can now torque down the bolt and get enough preload to seal the valve cover without removing the old gasket. Make sure you use a torque wrench ( in-lbs) or be very careful not to snap these small valve cover bolts.

The flasher is bolted to the firewall behind the right side of the instrument panel and you can't get to it from underneath the instrument panel. You will have to remove the center console fascia to get to the instrument cover screws and remove the instrument cover. Then you can get to the instrument holding screws and move the instrument panel out of the way. Either a service manual or AutoZone.com will have this information and pictures. Replace the flasher with a genuine Toyota flasher relay. The aftermarket relays might look like they fit but I have found out they don't work properly. The flasher is bolted to the firewall with a 13mm bolt. Take out the bolt and replace the flasher.

This is slightly counter-intuitive, but the plastic lens needs to go in and up before it comes out. After removing the two screws, use something thin and flat to pull down on the underside painted part of the wing between the two screws. A little bit of prying downwards. Two raised lips become visible - they are holding the lens from being able to be pushed up and in. A second pair of hands could help. Then use your thumbs on the lens close to the screws, gripping with your fingers on the top of the wing and squeeze up. POP!

First thought is ignition being way off - the ignition system usually gets the crankshaft position from a proximity switch (crank position sensor) and calculates ignition timing from this pulse. When this switch gives faulty pulses everything is off. Check connector and cable and if possible test it.
