Previa Clutch?

Recommended Posts

Hiya. New here, cards on the table; I just bought a Previa, 92' 2.2 diesel auto to carry my tribe of kids around. I've never owned an auto before & know nothing about them. I've always been pretty handy with a spanner though. Today I've noticed a fault on the car. I put my foot down & about a second later the clutch bites. Also while driving the engine races while the speed of the car remains constant. In a manual I'd say the clutch is worn. Is this the case in an auto or is it an indication of something else?

Aaron.

Thanks for the advice. You were right; low ATF level. There's a leak! Topping it up 'til I can find time to fix it. Here's my current quandry. Where's the reservoir? I'm topping up in the dipstick tube for now. Help me Obiwan, you're my only hope.:-)

Hi, That's how you fill the auto box through the dip stick, keep doing that till you fix the leak.
