Asked by Sep 27, 2015 at 02:55 AM about the 1992 Toyota Previa 3 Dr LE Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We don't drive it a lot right now but our 1992 Privia Mini van develeped a funny tick or ping sound under the van in the back maybe the transmission.  It goes down the road fine but the noise is annoying and obviously has some sort of problem.  It started on a round trip road trip last year in August 2014  of 1400 miles still runs and we just don't know why it makes that sound.   Or what it is.  if it will go a long time or if it is a minor or major problem.  Maybe a sensor?  Don't know

It sounds like possibly your rear wheel bearings, lift the rear on the car and try spinning the wheel to see if you can hear the noise. While the car in up pull and push the tires and feel for any play....
