    Re: A Previa OEM Muffler Autopsy

    OE muffler design can be fascinating. Interesting how much damping can be done in just a few chambers. I have a 95 SC RWD I may do similar with on a lazy afternoon. I have some motorcycle muffler...

    Re: Strange false warnings

    I doubt you'll find much help here... you have one of the lame front-engine vans lol

    Re: Fuel Pump Filter and Fuel Filter

    The fuel system doesn't really need any periodic maintenance. The fuel filters are there to prevent a catastrophic failure upstream from moving downward. They do NOT need to be "maintained" like oil...

    Re: Seat heater, thermometer, scangage II

    I stuck my ScangaugeII in the pocket under the radio.

    Ah the scangauge... so innovative back in the day but totally blown away by modern tech.

    Re: stearing shake

    shake on corners is the textbook symptom of a bad wheel bearing.

    If you have tapered rollers and they need "tightening up", it's not great but not unheard of.
    If you have ball-bearings (as...
  7. Re: Low Oil Light on When Starting Then Disappears

    I've heard mixed things about K&N filters... cheap filter with a nut welded on. Edit: no personal experience, just what I've heard

    I use Wix filters, usually bought by the case from RA, for all 7...

    Re: Final diagnosis...head gasket blown?

    Could also be a cracked head or block.

    Compression, cylinder leakdown, and coolant leakdown tests could also help pinpoint a leak vs spillage.

    Could coolant have made it's way to the top of the...
  10. Sticky: Re: oil pressure sensor??

    Can you pick the part up and shoot a pic of it somewhere better? It could be sasquatch for all I can see in that pic.

    Re: Sitting Previa- Common Repairs

    How long has it been sitting? Months or years?

    As you said, go ahead and plan on all the soft parts... seals & orings, belts would be a safe bet, tires too. Hoses are a gamble. Tires are easy to...

    Re: new exhaust => low idle

    lol That was going to be my suggestion: fix what causes it to run poorly at proper idle.
  13. Re: 85 auto TV transmission fluid coming out of the dipstick

    When does it burp fluid out? moving or idling? in gear or in park/neutral? As soon as you start the engine or only after it gets warm driving a while?

    Re: new exhaust => low idle

    At what RPM is it idling?

    Did the battery get disconnected? Any other work done up front? vacuum leaks?

    Re: van 1987 4wd doesn't pass on the 5th gear

    What do you mean "doesn't pass in 5th gear"? Like, doesn't pass other cars? 5th gear isn't for passing, it's for cruising along steady speed for better mpg. I think what you maybe mean is that your...
  17. Re: This is how forums die and lose any new members that might want to start posting

    I'm of the opposite opinion of the OP, Failbook offers no sorting or organization options and a s***y search function. The feed's just a vomit of everyone's thoughts and there's nothing but the feed...

    For the record, there's a viscous coupling in the center diff... the driving attributes you described align with having it. Basically, the more one side spins, the more it tightens up, up to a point....
