  1. TPMS problem for newbie, help greatly appreciated!

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I will add to this. If the light is on you can reset by just pressing the reset switch and light goes out. The light will come back on after a bit. To do a full reset. Set tire pressures and press and HOLD the reset button until the light flashes 3 times and goes out. Light must flash 3 times...
  2. Severe Wobbling on Acceleration

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Hate to say it but sounds like one of the new CV shafts is defective. Were they OEM or aftermarket. Lots of issues with aftermarket CV shafts sorry to say.
  3. Awd retorque

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I saw someone post up not that long ago. I think it was like $20.00. I honestly never thought they charged for that.
  4. Gen 2 Coolant leak following knock sensor replacement

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    Coolant leaking the valley on the 3.3liter is a common issue and will get into the knock sensor. Did they fix the leak(?) if there was one? Second thing that comes to mind is that they pinched the oring on the thermostat gasket. Hard to say. Kind of sounds like whoever did the repair messed up...

  6. Alternator Fusible Link Fuse 140 amp Remove

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    I have never had a GEN3 apart but they are a PITA. The 140A fuse pushes into the fuse box and has to be unbolted as you know. I had a quick look at my van (2011). Looks like the battery and maybe the ECM will have to come out and maybe the airbox. Once they are out of the way you have to remove...
  7. 2012 Sienna LE Sun Visor: making noise when flipping up or down

    Anything Sienna
    You know what I find works well is a silicone spray in a can. This also works awesome on headrests also. Pop the headrest out. Clean the chrome slide. A little spray on the chrome and the headrests slide up and down with ease. :) It's magic.
  8. Sitting at a light and this happens....

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    HAHA. I love watching those vids on Youtube. We don't have too much of that type of stuff happening in Canada. But some of the big cities in the USA have tons of vids of that type of stuff going on. Very stupid but I love to watch. :) I just sold off my 3 wheeler but still have 2 dirt bikes. I...
  9. No Power to one side of the fuse Box.

    Mobile Electronics
    Looks like the main fuse bus is blown. It is a bit of a pain to replace as it bolts from inside the fuse box. Not sure if the aftermarket world has these or not.
  10. Rear Driver Side Shoulder Belt Anchor

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Sorry to get back to you so late. The spacer is held on by a little washer. It is not felt. I don't think it is metal. I don't know the proper name for it. The spacer does not come separate as it comes as all 1 assembly and is a part of the belt assembly. I am thinking that when you unbolted the...
  11. knock sensor/ transmission

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    It is not mice. If it was mice it would not be intermittent. This is a common issue. Coolant leak in the valley. Coolant gets into the sensor. Takes about 4-5 hours plus the sensor.
  12. Previa Owners (Past & Present)...Please share...

    1984 - 1997 Toyota Van & Previa Minivans
    I call them a 'doorstop' :) I had a 1989 Cargo. 2 seater with rear heat. I raced gocarts and my cart would fit in the back with all my gear. Also had a seadoo that fit in the back that sat on a modified trailer in backwards. Jetdrive would sit in between the 2 front seats!!! 2nd one was a 1987...
  13. Rear Driver Side Shoulder Belt Anchor

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    I do think you are missing a big spacer that goes goes over the end of the bolt where it mounts to the body. It is round and about a 1" long. Usually black in color. It may have fallen down on removal. Allows the top of the belt to pivot when the bolt is torqued down.
  14. Full tank of gas and display say less than 300 miles before empty?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    I do think that if you reset your average fuel economy and fill your tank the numbers will change on DTE. OR do a test. Fill your tank and see if DTE is the same as your actual mileage that you covered.
  15. Scheduled Maintenance - so confused over manual vs dealership

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Interesting on the tightening of the driveshaft bolts for a fee? Is that normal? I thought that cleaner was for people that go well over the 8KM between oil changes as some people do. What area is this?
  16. Alternator Problem?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    I see no reason to disconnect the battery while the engine is running. To answer your question. Yes it 'could'.
  17. 2011 Sienna SE - Dealer recommends replacing Control Arms & Lower Ball Joints

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Is there any way you could post up pics of the bushings and grease coming out of the ball joints? Is there a break down of parts and labour to do these jobs?
  18. Maintenance History on 2019 Sienna What Is and Engine Elect Concern?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Service person put it in the wrong section. It looks like it was diagnosed on the first visit. Then parts ordered and fixed on the second visit? Maybe they put the wrong mileage too.
  19. 2015 toyota sienna LE

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Is it stuck? Or you don't know how to how to get the cable back up? There is a access hole behind the passenger seat to get the cable to retract back up.
  20. Brake lights not working

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    What fuse did you replace? There is a 'BRAKE' fuse and a 'TAIL' fuse.
