About Toyota Van

Also known as Toyota Space or Toyota Master Ace Surf, Toyota Van though has been produced by a renowned Japanese automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation since 1970 but was only available in American from 1984 to 1989 as a minivan. Built based on the Toyota Town Ace, Toyota Van was actually the import version of second-generation R-Series Town Ace van and Master Ace Surf van. Sold as a utility and passenger vehicle, Toyota Van was available in ready for work cargo versions as well as more deluxe passenger models before it was replaced by the Toyota Previa minivan in 1990.
Toyota Van made its debut in the North American market in 1983 for the 1984 model with styling shared with the Master Ace Surf. Competing against the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager minivans, it was offered as a rear-wheel-drive model between 1983 and 1989 and as a four-wheel-drive model from 1987 to 1989. And Toyota Van came with trim levels including the base, DLX, DX, LE, CRG Deluxe and LE (Limited Edition). Featured the angled front section, large front windshield, square headlights and oddly asymmetrical styling, Toyota Van initially was powered by a 2.0 L I4 engine rated at 87 horsepower, which was replaced by a 2.2 L I4 producing 102 hp. Both engines sent power through a 5-speed manual transmission.

Toyota Van Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering exceptional towing capacity and payload ability, Toyota Van enjoys a group of fans. But due to the responsibilities it has to undertake, you need to keep a close eye on your Van's working condition and pay more attention to these common problems:
First, if engine failure is the worst situation then cooling system failure is the catalyst that pushes all worst situations to happen prematurely. Based on some Toyota Van drivers, these two issues often arise together. Generally speaking, when the engine starts to make whining noises, misfires, suffers from starting issues; if the coolant also keeps leaking to cause engine stay at a high temperature, then the engine performance will plummet dramatically so that you could feel a loss of power while acceleration and notice a poor gas mileage. Van owners also warn that illuminated Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light are the most obvious signs of inspection on Van oil filter, radiator hose, throttle body gasket, thermostat, thermostat gasket, spark plug, air filter, intake manifold gasket, thermostat housing, cylinder head gasket, distributor cap and fuel filter.
Second, issues on braking, transmission and suspension systems though won't bring about catastrophic results like engine failure; you still need to be careful as they could result in driving safety issues. In your Toyota Van, if the rear brakes are locking up, especially on wet surfaces, please replace the old brake proportioning valve. But if you could hear clunking, rattling or squeaking noises from underneath the vehicle and feel hard to control the vehicle, Van torsion bar and coil spring insulator may be the culprits. As for transmission failure, you need to focus on the working condition of Van bellhousing.
However, mastering the skills of diagnosing and solving above-mentioned common problems is still not enough for a safe and sound as well as complete pleasant driving experience. Routine maintenance on some vulnerable parts is the key to enjoy this. As some parts are bound to wear and tear more quickly than others due to constituent materials and working conditions, taking preventative measures is always right. Thus, in your Toyota Van, please maintain door handle, fog light bulb, headlight bulb, cabin air filter, antenna, wiper blade and seat belt on a regular basis since all of them play important roles in making sure a secure and comfortable ride.
