    Re: How to disassemble the dash on a Previa

    Considering how infrequently the dash needs to be pulled apart, I always put all screws back. Failing to put them back may make future disassembling easier, but can also result in squeaks and rattles.

    Re: 89 2wd van, codes 2 - 5 and 6

    Have you thoroughly checked the throttle body rubber intake tube for cracks? With the van idling give it a squeeze. If the van stalls, then it's likely that tube. Tim

  8. Re: 1987 Toyota 4wd manual getting code 6 RPM Signal

    It's not a very common code. I've only seen it on vans that don't run or left over from previous conditions that were resolved. Since our ECU's don't self clear, unless you clear manually, errant...

  10. Re: Engine Service Connector not working - can't set proper ignition timing

    Yes, that's it. That one fits all years and all models of US vans with auto transmissions. More details on this job can be found in THIS THREAD starting on post #14.
  11. Re: Engine Service Connector not working - can't set proper ignition timing

    It could be a transmission issue then. I'm not a transmission guy, but I'd start out by pulling the pan and replacing the screen/strainer assy. I'd also check for metallic particles in the fluid and...
  12. Re: Engine Service Connector not working - can't set proper ignition timing

    Have you checked transmission fluid level? Not shifting into gear @ low RPM while cold is the classic indicator you're running low on ATF. Tim

    With those codes we must be talking about an 88 - 89 van......right? Code 22 is an ECU Temp Sensor code, but if that sensor is bad the van will run REALLY bad, so I'm guessing that's an old code that...
