Question about 1993 Toyota Previa
Took out the front driveline but now it only goes in reverse.
The Previa has a special hydraulic center clutch. To convert it to rear wheel drive it would be necessary to replace the whole drive train. Disconnecting the front drive shaft on a 4 wheel drive vehicle will only save you a very small amount of of fuel. The only way to see a substantial fuel savings is by disconnecting the front drive axles from the wheels. This is what manual hubs do and that is why they are still popular.
To see even more fuel savings you would need to remove all of the front drive components and this would remove several hundred pounds and ever bit of weight that you can remove adds up to more fuel savings. But now you will end up changing the center of gravity and the balance of the vehicle.
I have made the assumption that you are trying to increase the fuel mileage of your Previa. Is this correct??
So in the long run you are looking at a major rebuild of your Previa. It would be less costly and less of a headache to go buy a smaller more fuel efficient vehicle.
I know that this isn't the answer you were looking for but this is the proper answer. I hope this helps.
