Question about 1993 Toyota Previa

1 Answer

I have a 1993 Toyota Previa. It has been leaking oil for the last few days. I have difficulty turning the wheel and at the same time it makes a wealing noise. I checked my engine, brake, and power steering oil, and they were all fine. Is there an axel oil of some sort. Or are there any other oils you use on the van and if so where is it located?

No, this is a power steering issue. Are you certain the power steering fluid level is correct? The squeeling noise is caused by air in the power steering pump. The leak must be repaiored, usually by replacing the pump, unless it is just a leak in the reservoir.

Oil leaking from rear drivers side brake drum


If it's oil, your axle seal is leaking, and will need to be replaced. That will involve taking the rear diff apart. If it is brake fluid, you just have a leaky wheel cyllinder. Determine for sure which it is before you start spending money.

My Toyota Previa after sitting for a few days takes about 3 minutes before reverse gear will work. Checked Automatic tranny oil when hot and is correct - forward gears work ok Thanks Graham


try to change the trans oil and filter possibly need to change, looks like a transmission shift solenoid is the problem or trans computer the oil and temperature will get it last longer also but would likely recommend to have it diagnose by a transmission specialist to fine what causing it

Oil level light stays blinking on toyota previa 1993


most of these models have 2 oil lights.The red one is oil pressure,if flashing or on when engine is running,it is usually serious.check oil level,but usually caused by blocked pickup screen(a common toyota fault) when services aren't done.The orange oil light is tripped by an oil level sensor on the side of the sump when the oil level is low.If the oil level is ok,note this is a common fault especially if oil changes have been missed,and/or a petrol engine oil used and sludge builds up,sometimes using an additive for flushing prior to oil change can help,but may not work on 1st oil change.

How long will a timing chain last?


A "Timing Chain" should last the life of the engine, as long as you change oil according your car makers recommendations. A "Timing Belt" is another story they are usually good for about 80,000 to 100,000 miles.

Warning light


the red light indicates low oil pressure, check your oil and add as necessary, if it still comes on you have some type of restriction in an oil passage somewhere. the reason it only comes on when turning is because when turning the fluid level shifts in the oil pan and if it is low it is moving past the pick-up tubeand you only pumping air

1993 Toyota Previa makes a rattling noise when running


I have had this problem before, the first time it was discovered that the stand that support the hood was not properly secured in the clip slot.
The second time the grill was loose. Check these before going to the mechanic.
