Hi. Normally any squeeking sounds will come form the shock mountings. You can try a bit of oil. If you open the trunk, you will notice two large bumps, one on either side. Lift the carpet and find rubber mountings with a bolt and nut. Spray a little silicone spray or other lubricant and give it a try. If all else fails, go to your nearest dealer. Hope this helps

    Hi. If you open the trunk, on the left and right side of the trunk you wil notice a bulge in the carpet (just above the rear wheels inside the trunk) Remove the plastic clips with a flat screwdriver and remove the carpet. You should now see the shock mounting. It has a large nut with what looks like a rather thick bolt facing upwards. Spray a bit of lubricant on and around the rubbers and replace the carpet. Hope this helps

Getting nocking noise from rear of Toyota previa driver side

This can come from the suspension or the drive section but it is best to check if the fault is seen on the road or even while it is idling.if so the exhaust must be checked as a low idling can make the exhaust tap on the sides , specially the muffler or the exhaust pipes.If an inspection is done on the bottom side it will reveal the case.if not check the suspension and drive.

When i shift up from second to third gear it feels sticky, Whats wrong, I drive a 1996 toyota previa

This problem can be due to cheap fluid being in the transmission

put some synchromesh in it and it should smooth out your shifting.

This can be a serious problem, especially when the engine warms up and the cheap or old fluid thins out.

Check this video out, it is not the same model as yours but the ideas and the general location of parts are the same.

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...

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.

96 previa was smoking but went away then after 40 miles the temp went up,so I had it towwed to shop. He told me the engine siezed. Went to pick it up and started it then drove home. when I checked oil it...

this sounds like your head gasket has blown this would be the reason why you have cream colored water, this is oil in the water and loosing water is also a sign of head gasket , a creamy residue on the oil filler cap is also a sign, overheating is defiantly a sign if you have the other 2 all three points to head gasket, you will possibly need the head skimmed now as well...hope this helps

Rattling Noise

The power steering pump could be going bad. The noise coming from the catalytic converter could be something as simple as a mounting bracket coming loose, or worst case something busted internally.
