the oil is filled and checked by lifting passenger seat and hatch. The under bonnet reservoir tops up oil as required to ensure all the oil ways are filled. This ensures the top end of the engine does not run dry. If all is well then you will rarely ever top this up.
Try and determine where the oil leak is coming from and keep an eye on the oil level in the sump (under passenger chair)

up to 1994 Previa's the cam sensors are located in the distributor, there is one for each cam. labeled G1 & G2 which are the center 2 of the 4 wires to the distributor, if you want to test them first.
Also, top wire is crank sensor, bottom is ground.

I believe you will have to replace the whole distributor.

What water bottle? If it is the windshield washer, then either the hose, pump, or bottle itself is cracked. Find out exactly where the water is coming out.

If some other bottle, answer the first question.

Thanks, Jim

You may need to try to find a used shop manual for this repair.
The DIY books don't show wiring diagrams for the a/c system.

Often a sign of faulty plug wires or cap and rotor.
The moisture makes the spark jump around too much.

. Place a set of wheel chocks behind the rear wheels of the Previa. Lift the front of the automobile on the side that you are starting with. Place a jack stand under the Previa and raise it to the frame of the vehicle. Remove the wheel using the lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts.
2Remove the brake caliper by loosening the retaining pins with a socket and ratchet. Secure the caliper out of the way using a wire tie. Do not allow it to hang by the hose. Remove the brake rotor from the wheel. Disconnect the ABS sensor from the strut if the Previa has anti-lock brakes.

Hi Ken, Is the vehicle cranking (the engine turning when the starter is engaged or does nothing at all happen. If its the latter, I believe you have a problem with the battery. Get a friend to help with an jump start (Positive to positive and negative to negative) and then crank and it should start. If the engine turns but fails to start, when the ignition is turned on, do you see the engine check light with all the other warning lights. If not open the hood and replace the ECU fuse nod then try again. If you see the light, let us know and we can go on from there. Regards John

you may have a vacuum leak or the idle control valve is going bad

Good at start up then lack power under load,a plugged exhaust can do that.If there was a misfire that has been ignored the catalytic can only handle for so long. The 1994 Previa uses a vane airflow meter.so a torn intake duct can also cause lack of power under load,so check the air duct at the MAF to the intake and inspect for false air.

look closely at the valve cover there should be a cap that seas oil.

I would suggest getting the areas between the cylinder head and the exhaust manifold checked for leaks. Your description sounds like a classic beginnings of an exhaust manifold gasket leak.
