  1. General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Have a 2005 Sienna LE. Our first Toyota in '11 and one of the best vehicles we've ever had. It suits our family fine overall. Probably time to move on/up. It has 265K miles and is starting to need some repairs. Wondering what ya'll would recommend moving to. We don't buy NEW and go in debt, so...
  2. Problems, Maintenance, and Repair (Gen 2)
    Couple months ago I renewed the radiator with new hoses and thermostat. A coolant leak developed and I thought it might have been the hose clamps as there was pink residue at the lip of the hoses (might still be as I have not buttoned up everything yet , will report back). Close investigation...

    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 a 2011 Sienna LE with the 6 cylinder engine. I did the first oil change three days ago since the customer care ended. By far the hardest oil change I've done (mostly due to the dealership over tightening things). Now I'm paranoid I've done things wrong. In the aggravation I forgot to...

    I recently flushed my transmission fluid and changed my transmission filter on my 2004 Sienna. Here were some observations for people who are considering doing this. I used Toyota T-IV fluid for the flush. The fluid cost $5.60 a quart from the dealer. This was the best deal on a suitable fluid...

    i have a 04 Sienna. The van was running fine until the starter went bad. But before that in the winter it wasn't heating very well. So while I was putting in a new starter I thought I would change the thermostat. i removed everything including the starter which made it easy to remove thermostat...

    I usually change mine about once a year. I did it 3 months ago, but looked at it again today and it Looked all clogged and dirty. Maybe I'm just paranoid. Anyway, how often do you all change yours?
  10. Anything Sienna
    My 11 XLE calls for 235/60/17. I am starting to keep my eye out now during the summer to get a deal on some winter tires. I am learning really quick that this is an oddball size that is $$$$$!! However, I have found that if I could go up to a 65 instead of a 60 I can save a chunk of change...

    I have the 2015 SE, is it possible to change or remove the temperature output on the Multi-Information Display, its redundant and is a bit annoying, I would prefer to see nothing there at all.

    I recently purchased a 2000 Sienna with 175K miles to use as an extra vehicle. It runs and drives great. The issue is the transmission fluid. I checked back with the previous owner to see if he had the fluid changed. He bought the vehicle with 105K miles on it and has not had the fluid...
  13. Sienna Care & Maintenance
    Greetings, i recently changed both axles on my Sienna and in the process noticed that my aft was very black. I decided that although Toyota says it's not necessary to change, I didn't like its color so I changed it. I did not know at the time about the WS fluid require for 07 and newer and used...

    Just changed my coolant for the first time today at 95,000 miles, and exactly ten years, it was time. Since I have a real 8 seater, I plan on keeping it forever. Of course I used the Super Long Life Toyota coolant ( The pink stuff). New hoses (Gates) too. Kind of a waste. The original hoses were...

    After changing engine air filter I forgot to plug electrical connector back into air filter box. I ran my van for a day before I put it back. Now I am getting P2197 (B2S1). Any idea if replacing sensor is the only option for me now or cleaning it may work. If I pull sensor out what is the best...

    My long highway trips with the van full has me wondering if I should buy ( xl) Extra load tires but I can't find these in 19 ". If I go with 235/60-17 I have a better chance finding (XL) tires. What woudl happen to my handling if I make this change? Alhough, I am more concerned with safety...

    The cabin air filter P/N 87139-YZZ05 ($21 dealer price) appears to have been replaced by P/N 87139-YZZ19 ($29) which shows up in charts as a Lexus filter. The dealer parts guy claimed it was what his computer showed. It fit okay but has more pleats and the material seems be less porous. Due...

    Has anyone come across a way to lower the minimum speed for cruise control? It would be nice if it would handle lower than 45kmh so that I could use it in heavy traffic to and from work. I know this is probably not possible since I can't find much on reprogramming the computer in the Toyota in...

    Hi all We have a new (to us) 2014 Sienna LE that is due for maintenance and I have two questions. 1. where is the oil filter on this thing? I went feeling around under the heat shield on top of the engine and can't find it. 2. what are the torque values for the oil drain plug and the wheel lugs...
