Toyota introduced the Previa minivan in 1990. The 1992 Toyota Previa is equipped with a 2.4-liter in-line, four-cylinder, mid-mounted engine. This means the engine was mounted in the middle of the van. The engine in the 1992 Toyota Previa actually sits beneath the middle driver and passenger side seats, along with the vehicle’s battery compartment. The blower motor on the 1992 Toyota Previa is beneath the hood, on the firewall or back wall of what would normally be the engine compartment. Even in the absence of an engine, this wall between the front compartment and the cabin of the Previa is known as a firewall.
