    I think I have found the sound of the noise at start-up, but haven't found a thread about fixing. Is this a DIY job? I guess that belt does the alternator and the AC? So if it fails, you have what 5 minutes and the car dies. I can turn the AC off and the squeek stops at start up, but it...

    We have an 08 Sienna, 36K miles, blue smoke comes out on a cold startup, what might I check to fix this ? Thanks

    Here's a link to a video that someone else took that has the exact same noise: This issue has been happening for a couple months now, and actually happened before the recent cold weather, so I'm guessing it isn't necessarily cold-related. When we start the car, we hear a very loud whining...

    ************ UPDATE July 16, 2014 ************ After doing a little bit of homework, I realized that this problem was not Toyota-specific. I began to suspect the aftermarket alarm system that came with the vehicle-- the KARR alarm system (you will see a sticker commonly stuck on the...

    when I first start the van and turn on A/C the idle will fluctuate up and down a few hundred rpm and the A/C compressor will click on and off. Then got a code for idle air control valve. Not sure what is causing this. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Rando

    I started having trouble with my 2003 CE today (~86k miles). Ive had it about 2+ years and not had any major problems, nor have I ever had a hiccup trying to start it. It was very hot out, so I started it and cranked up the air. It seemed to be blowing hot longer than normal and I noticed the...

    So yesterday I started up our 2000 sienna after it had been sitting for almost 2 days, this is the longest the van has ever sat since we have owned it. It cranked over much slower than normal, and when it started it had this HORRIBLE ticking/clacking sound and was vibrating VERY badly. It...

    Recently when the engine has been off for over 10 minutes, it takes ~7 seconds to startup compared to the 3 seconds on a warm startup. However on some mornings it starts up just fine. This is the 3.3L V6 engine. Battery was replaced less than 2 years ago, and cranking seems constant. It almost...

    I have a new 09 Sienna w/nav. I read about making the hybrid nav disk in order to be able to access nav destinations, etc while moving. Thanks to this site and links to toyota nation I made the disk today and it works well. It does have a new start-up screen now, however, which requires...
  12. Problems & Issues
    I have a 2008 Sienna XLE and when I first put the vehicle in gear there is an odd noise under the front of the vehicle. It sounds like a solenoid or something that last for maybe 1 second and then goes away and does not happen again until the vehicle is cranked and put into gear again. Is there...

    I had both engine belts replaced due to milage and they never squeaked; now the new ones have progressively gotten worse over a time period of 1 year.
