  1. General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have narrowed down my minivan search to the Sienna for safety ratings and also because of the notorious transmission issue Odyssey's have. So Sienna it is. This is a pretty huge purchase for us and I don't want to be trapped in a money pit of a van (I know, who does?) Any advice y'all can give...
  2. General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hello All! I'm currently searching for an 06-10 Toyota Sienna. I was wondering if there is a list on the site or off of common problems with these vehicles (maybe something that lists common problems by year). My search was unsuccessful. This is a big purchase for our family and it would be...

    Our 2006 Toyota Sienna front AC and Heat and the Blower fan will not come on at all. The AC light does not turn on either. The Rear ac/heat comes on ok, but not real cold, but the heat does work fine in the rear. This problem began a few weeks ago when we took the van to the dealership for an...

    I apologize if this is a silly question, but have recently become obsessed with being a Toyota can owner, and am partial to a awd (Wisconsin winters are brutal- plenty of snow and even more ice). In looking at 10,000 craigslist ads from all over and even more google image searches, I've...
  6. General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi Guys, New to the forum. Just sold my Tacoma because my wife and I found out we're having twins:0. Looks like I'll be joining the minivan crowd. So I've narrowed my search down to the 2nd Gen Sienna (preferably 09-10, as by then they fixed the oil line issue?). Any other common trouble...

    New to me 2008 Limited AWD had fairly warm transmission fluid temperatures according to ScangaugeII, so we needed a cooler. Installed a Hayden 678 ($50 at amazon). To complete the install also needed 8" (hole-to-hole) of 3/4" strap iron, 2 small bolts & nuts, 4 washers, 2 zipties, and the kit...

    I couldn't find any definitive info on this site about FWD vs AWD rear springs, so I did some digging on Moogs website. Attached are the specs for the 2 springs: 81409(AWD) and 81411(FWD). The spring rates are exactly the same, 350 lbs/in. The AWD is about 3/4" longer. Everything else is the...

    In the monthly e-newsletter from our dealership, they (VERY surprisingly) included the list of redesigns and refreshes on all Toyota models through 2019, saying that they are, of course, subject to change. Next gen Sienna is in fact 2017. I can't wait that long so looks like we're going to be...

    I'm just wondering if anyone has installed the '01 (+later) Gen 1 tail lights in an earlier ('98, '99) Sienna. I thought there was absolutely NO difference between any of the Gen 1 Sienna's, but I am wrong (I get that alot!). I was following a Gen 1 today and I noticed how much difference...

    I’m not finding the unloaded hitch ground clearance for 3rd generation Sienna, 2011+. The existing thread is really about the 2nd gen. What’s yours? For starters I have a 1st generation Sienna with 2” hitch, and am going to get a 3rd gen Sienna. On my 1st gen: - 1.25 or 2” hitch: 2” -...

  15. Sienna Care & Maintenance
    Hi everyone, I just bought a 2005 AWD LE with 114K miles. The transmission fluid looks good. After reading lots of posts on this site, I'm going to replace all the transmission fluid, replace the filter, and add a Magnefine filter, and add some rare earth magnets to the drain pan. I found the...

    I've been having strange issues with the DRL system where the high beams seem to randomly vary between "high power" and "DRL Power" on my vehicle and don't think its coming from the headlight control stalk. I'd like to continue the troubleshooting on my own, but can't locate the DRL Relay. I...

    I am trying to replace the front valve cover gasket on my 2005. The procedure has been documented in other threads except for one detail regarding the bolts [as far as i can tell]. There are approximately 6 to 8 10mm cover bolts and 2 or 3 that look like a stud with an inverted torx head on...

    I have a 1998 Sienna lowered 2 3/4 inch on 20" wheels. I found some Previa springs and made my own lowering kit out of it. I was wondering if anyone knows besides bags what other option I have to lower it a bit more, maybe the other 1/4 inch so it would sit on the wheel. Help!! I'm interested to...
