  1. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 1)
    So I'm hoping it's not dead for real but last night the engine died and the car just turned off while I was turning onto a side street. Car is at like 188K miles and has recently gotten an oil change and replaced air filter. A small amount of smoke was coming from the hood as well. Smelled...
  2. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 1)
    Hi there! I recently purchased a 2000 LXE from a friend of mine who'd had problems with the ignition and pulled it all out from the console. I've since mod'd the ignition with a toggle switch and button start but in the process blew a fuse (I think) that operate my radio, clock and cab lights...

    Last night, my roommate clicked the back seat dome light on and it would not turn off after that. We managed to remove the plastic, clear cover and noticed that a piece that we are assuming holds the light in the off position was broken. Without something constantly pressing the sensor, the...

    I'm having trouble turning the key past "acc." I have checked around the Internet and found videos on how to remove the ignition cylinder (to fix the problem or replace the cylinder) but I can't get mine out. I haven't been able to find a video for my exact make and model, but for other Toyotas...

    I can't seem to find an aftermarket door check strap replacement for a 2000 Sienna. The only place I've found it is at the dealer or an OEM distributor for $85 (P/N 68620-08010). It's a simple hard rubber slider that broke; doesn't seem be worth $85. Before I go to a salvage yard I wonder if...

    I have a 2000 Sienna that blows the 10A fuse that controls the door locks, tail lights , and a few others that I don't have listed. It only happens every now and then and seems pretty random. It happened once in June and then just happened last week. Any ideas on what could be causing this...

    I replaced the PCV valve on my 136k mi 2000 Sienna CE today. I've attached a few pics. I used an old paint roller extension pole, (see 1st pic) like you use to paint ceilings in a house to make a hood prop that I can move to the side I'm not working on. Plus it holds the hood open wider for...

    Has anybody added an oil catch reservoir (see attached pic) to their 1st generation Sienna? Mine puts out a pretty big cloud at startup, but not all the time and I was wondering if one might help.

    Re: Remote Keyless Entry I am trying to find out if my 2000 Sienna CE has remote keyless entry. I bought the vehicle yesterday, got the keys with no remote and need to verify that the car indeed never came with keyless entry. If it did and all I have to do is get a remote on eBay I'll be very...

    2000 Sienna LE, 151K, engine gone bad. Connector rod bearings or worse. Nobody around here wants to buy the van and work on it themselves, so I need to do something. I have a source with a '99 engine with 93K on it. Has anyone here done an engine swap in one of these? I did one years ago...

    I have been trying to put on a replacement driver's door handle for a Toyota Sienna 2000 CE. The original broke. I can get most of the parts out from the door but cannot get the replacement part into the two connecting rods as well as into the door frame? Anyone have a YouTube or some other...
