  2. Building my Winter Tire Package

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Did a ride upstate today, so I just got back from driving 75 miles in mixed conditions, from 4" snow to sleet/ice mix. the 225/65-17 DMV2 absolutely crushed it! it handled decently, and was very stable, although a little pushy when driven aggressively, which is to be expected for a whale of a...

  4. Whats your Distance Till Empty number when you fill up your gas tank?

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    we have 3-4 gallons left in the tank when the fuel light comes on. long story short, a few months ago i put over 60 miles on my van trying to find a late night gas station...
  5. spare donut wheel and tire Sienna AWD (tested)

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    nice find! I could not find anything nice/cheap when I wanted my spare. The rim will fit no issues, but you risk damage if you run it for too many miles. If you have to use it, I hope it is for a very short distance. Good luck!
  6. oil change interval on 2018 XLE ???

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I am doing the oil in my Sienna every 5k. Given the amount of miles i am putting on it, and the amount of idle time, 5k makes sense for me. good luck with your 2018!

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Not sure what the hangup is. it is easy, and costs $200. I have the same van, and the same tire. Here, click the link below this sentence... https://www.siennachat.com/threads/spare-donut-wheel-and-tire-sienna-awd-tested.2658/page-13#post-338768
  8. Bridgestone LM-60s, 2018 AWD XLe

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    any runflat tire has a much stiffer sidewall then a "normal" tire. truthfully, they are more of a chore to mount, but there are newer tire machines that make this easy. doesn't sound like the place that you went to has either proper tire machines or competent staff. if you have basic skills...
  9. Carry two bicycles inside Sienna

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    i have the same rack, best on the market imho! I used it on my previous vehicles, and installed a 2" hitch on my sienna to use it on that too. the past few years the wife and I got rear ended or bumped from behind multiple times. I decided to get the sienna, so i can put my bike completely...
  10. Carry two bicycles inside Sienna

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    you are referring to the full size transit, the 150/250+, not the transit connect, correct? The connect is smaller, i had one for 3 years and put 100k on it, Sienna is better in every direction...
  11. Carry two bicycles inside Sienna

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Earlier this year, i purchased a Sienna primarily to haul my bicycle(s) around. I ride year round, and I am sick of the salt spray on the hitch/roof carriers in winter time... I wanted complete coverage for my bike, and a sheltered area to change etc. but did not want a sprinter/full size van...

    General Discussion (Gen 3)

  13. Problem with gas tank access door hinge/spring

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I am making a point to lube my gas door hinge when i put washer fluid in. I have a good graphite lube that i use for my garage door hinges, so i have been spraying that in there. :)
  14. About to tackle spark plugs on my 2016 Limited

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    there is a good tutorial on youtube. it is simple, but a lot of crap you have to have to remove to gain access to the rear plugs. i can't believe that guy didn't put any rags in the intake... but it illustrates what needs to be done. Good luck!

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
