Question about 1991 Toyota Previa

Will not start

MY COMPANY'S 1991 PREVIA WILL NOT START. IT STRATED A FEW DAYS AGO WHEN I NOTICED AFTER GETTING THE ENGINE TO OPERATING TEMP THAT WHEN I WOULD STOP WITH A/C ON, I WOULD THEN ACCELERATE AND THE ENGINE WOULD CLATTER AND THE VEHICLE WOULD CRAWL FORWARD A FEW YARDS BEFORE IT WOULD ACCELERATE AT A NORMAL SPEED. THE OTHER DAY, WE WENT OUT OF TOWN, THE VEHICLE RAN ALL RIGHT WHILE ON THE FREEWAY BUT AFTER LEAVING THE FREEWAY AND HAVING TO SLOW DOWN OR STOP, IT WOULD NOT ACCELERATE PROPERLY, BUT AGAIN AFTER A FEW YARDS IT WOULD ACCELERATE. ANYWAY, AFTER MAKING A TURN DOWN A DIRT ROAD AND TRYING TO TURN AROUND, THE ENGINE CLATTERED AND WOULD NOT START AGAIN. IT WILL TURN OVER BUT DOESN'T EVEN TRY TO START. WE CAN SMELL GAS WHEN WE TRY TO START IT AND THE STARTER WILL ENGAGE, BUT THAT IS IT. CAN YOU HELP? THIS IS THEONLY VEHICLE WHICH WE HAVE TO CONDUST OUR BUSINESS.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.0L engine... the temperature only rises to about 150 degrees and stops... sometimes lowers a bit even at highway speeds. Normal operating temp is about 210-215 degrees. ...


The thermostat controls the temp of the engine. The temp sensor tells the gauge what temp to display. If the heater is still putting out a lot of heat then it may be a false reading temp gauge. If however the temp is noticibly cooler then replace the thermostat. A stuck open thermostat would also cause the engine to warm up slowly. check for a loose/dirty connection at the plug on the temp sensor.

My 1990 Cadillac Deville wont start or engage starter


Sounds like you blew fuse. Fix fuse and borrow a car starting switch they use at car repair shops. As long as you can turn tumbler to on ,you can start using the starting switch from repair shop..There should be a way to run a start button to start car and your off/on key should be OK

Engine cooling fan


you will need an electric fan fitted to the radiator and bear in mind that you will need the appropriate voltage reading etc,so you need the right power source.Also you need to consider a thermostat fitted in the cooling system unless you want to run it on direct power.For any questions,please ask.

Steve I had similar problem not too long ago about a week to be precise. Your alternator is beginning to go bad. You might service or better still replace it.
