  1. cruise control stopped working

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I deleted my reply after I realized that I was confusing the cruise stalk with the wiper stalk (which doesn't turn with the steering wheel).

  3. Variable Valve Timing Oil Line Failures 3.5l V6

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    My 2009 Sienna has the all-metal line, and it doesn't look any newer than anything else on the engine so I believe it's original.
  4. What did you do to your Sienna today?

    Mods and Projects (Gen 2)
    I got it along with some other parts from a 2005 XLE. I don't think it was a Limited but it might have been. The console does have lots of extra space. The large main compartment is even bigger than it looks in my last photo above, because the lid and upper compartment is hiding the back part of...
  5. Variable Valve Timing Oil Line Failures 3.5l V6

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    The all-metal line became standard in mid-production of the 2008 model year for Siennas.

    In Pelos and ericreyn's photos, there is a light-colored bolt head near the center of the image. In the photo from Pelos, beyond the bolt head you can see a grimy (leaking!) oil line with a bit of rubber tubing held by a spring clamp. The photo from ericreyn is rotated, as if looking over the...
  7. Name of these trim pieces?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 3)
    Fading aside, why do carmakers such as Toyota not care about matching blacks? I can forgive tires and rubber weatherstripping since there's no easy way to match those to everything else. But all the other little black details all over the car should be fairly easy to give a uniform shade...
  8. AC low pressure switch

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    I hope you put the proper type and amount of oil in it because you definitely need to do that after vacuuming the system. You also need to replace the receiver/dryer after the system goes open like that. If you didn't do both of those things, the compressor will be wrecked in a short time.
  9. So, If people should NOT create threads here, what is the purpose of this forum? What content will be here if there are no threads?

    Problems & Issues
    I don't understand the reason for your post, or why you posted it in this forum. Where does it say that members should not post problems in the forum "Maintenance & Car Detailing > Problems & Issues"? If your question is about the site & forums in general, isn't this the wrong forum? Moderators...
  10. How long will a Toyota Sienna run if you forget and walk away.

    General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Some memories from several years ago (probably somewhere around 10-25): One owner's manual that I saw had a warning not to leave the vehicle idling for extended periods. I don't remember how long they said was "too long" or what reason was given, if any. I also seem to remember that one...
  11. A/C not working. :( How do I start to narrow down the problem?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    Typical modern vehicles have two electric fans. One is thermostatically controlled and runs only when the engine coolant temperature is high enough. The other is connected to the air conditioning system and runs whenever the AC is on. Some vehicles may have additional logic to run the second fan...
  12. Door unlock Feature

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Check your manual. For my 2009, it's in Chapter 1 - Before Driving, Section 2 - Opening, closing and locking the doors. I set mine to: shift position linked locking set shift position linked unlocking cancelled speed linked locking cancelled driver's door linked unlocking set I agree that...
  13. Shift gear position

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Be careful downshifting on slippery roads, if you go too far you can lose traction (and steering control in a FWD vehicle). The usual reaction of taking your foot off the pedal won't help, and neither will the vehicle's traction control system; you have to increase throttle (or shift back up a...
  14. Has anyone else come up with a better way to do curtains in a Gen. 2 Sienna?

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Wow, this brings back memories - the last vehicle I rode in that had curtains was my dad's '75 Chevrolet Blazer. It was dark green with a white top, and my mom made the rear side-window curtains from some Hawaiian "Aloha shirt" print fabric in white with green tiki-style images. The curtains had...
  15. cruise control stopped working

    General Discussion (Gen 2)
    No ideas here. At first I thought it might be a blown fuse, but in my 2009 manual I looked at the fuse descriptions and I only see one that mentions "cruise"; however, it's an ECU fuse that also protects lots of other items, so if it was blown there would be many other systems with problems...
  16. Swap manual front seats for power seats

    Mods and Projects (Gen 2)
    I think most things are interchangeable from '04 thru '10, with the major exception being engine stuff ('04 and '05 having the 3.3 liter, '06 up having the 3.5). Headlights might be different in '04 and '05 too. Taillights changed styles once or twice but I think they all physically fit.

    Siennachat Site Issue Help Desk
    EDIT: I see that members' "Garage" sections have been migrated as "Showcase" entries. Is there any plan to make the site look more like the previous version, or will we only have the "Light" and "Dark" skin modes that are currently available? I notice that my signature has mostly maintained...
  18. Rotor not flush after rear wheel bearing replacement. 2008 FWD

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    Sounds like you got a rotor that was made to wrong dimensions.
  19. Front End Shaking when Braking

    Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    Have the rotors checked and possibly turned. Even brand new ones are often out-of-true.
