I dont know why my 93 previa wont run anymore, it cranks and wants to start but fails, i dont know if i need new spark plugs or its the fuel pump. it has 250,995 miles on it. the only problem i had with is...

The high idle is affects it ability to start up, but the main problem is the fuel pump ,to deliver proper fuel to start the vehicle up, the previa is also equipt with a cold start injector, try this cycle the ignition but just dont start we will let it build pressure, cylcle it and do you hear the humming noise thats the fuel pump, cycle it again, now crank it hopefully this helps

High idle speed when the engine is cold

The high idle speed at start up is normal. As the engine temperature increases, the engine idle should kick down automatically. Insofar as the emissions results, if there were a problem, the check engine light should be on. If it is, take the car to an autoparts store and have the fault codes read. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. If the check engine light is not on, and the idle question was all you were worried about, you are good to go! Hope this helped and best wishes.

At startup my 94' F150 will oscillate from high to low idle

I had this problem once on an econoline van and it was the plantum gasket but before you change this check all the vacuum lines and get a digital volt meter and test the voltages on the mass air flow sensor and if you have to change the plantum gasket auto zone can print you out a diagram stating all you have to remove to replace it

High Pitched noise

I had a high pitch noise, didn't sound like it came from the "underside". Turns out it was one of fans that had little chips in the blades? My Audi dealer replaced it, and it's fine now.
