We have a 2002 Sienna LE, non-power driver's side door with the same "rattle" when going over bumps. I even had the dealer install the rubber edging found on the passenger side power door in hopes of making the "dull, thumping" sound go away. No luck. I think the hinges that have the roller are spring loaded, always wondered if they become loose.
Has anyone had this issue resolved ?
Otherwise, at 45,000 miles we are very happy with Toyota quality.

You are 100% correct about the so-called sludge problem.
#3482 of 3687 2002 Sienna CE Code P0446

I have a 2002 Sienna CE with 25k mile, I have the check engine light on and went to AutoZone and they mentioned the code was realted to a Purge Valve. Has anyone had this problem? I was reading that a gas cap not being properly seated could be the cause or it could this part that controls the pressure in your gas tank. Any help is greatly appreciated.

My 2002 Sienna Symphony is doing the same thing. The fueling nozzle just shuts off after about a gallon if the fuel is going in at a normal flow. It seems to be getting worse over the past 6 months. The repair shop could find nothing wrong, yet the problem continues. Did you have any luck with repairing the problem?

Have you taken it to the dealer?

not an expert, but that sounds like you are not removing air as the fuel enters the tank. there may be a fuel vent valve as part of the gas tank / fuel system. see if you can't find a diagram of these parts, and point this out to your tech.

I am having this issue with my 2002 Sienna. The pump shuts off after about a gallon of gas. I can pump if I pull the nozzle outside the tube and watch it, the gas bubbles up and out if I fill it too fast. HELP.

Feb 06, 2006 (8:03 am)
I have a 02 Symphony and I was driving it to Vegas and the driver side windshield weatherstip decides to peel back from the channel it is in and is flapping in the wind. I duct taped it down and went on my way.
When I got home I brought the vehicle to Kearny Mesa Toyota and they tell me this is not a warranty item. I asked them for a refund for the Platinum warranty I purchased since it is essentially useless then. Of course I was told no and I had to pay to repair what is obviously a Toyota Defect.
I called Toyota and asked them to cover it under warranty and they refused. I asked the CSR why should I purchase another Toyota when it is obvious that they will not stand behind the quality of their vehicles. All I heard was the static of the telephone line.
Needless to say, Toyota has just sold another vehicle for Honda. Wheres the Quality, Toyota?????

i'm sorry i can't be of more help.
it's possible that either your fuel filler tube (goes from the place you remove the cap and stick the fuel pump nozzle into to the tank) is crimped, or perhaps there is a problem with a fuel tank vent hose (or solenoid if there is one).
i cannot seem to find a fuel system diagram on the web for a sienna, but i suspect one or the other.
gee the service people don't seem to be trying too hard to locate your problem. maybe the tubes are difficult to get to. i don't know.

I have 2002 Sienna LE (50K miles) and been having check lamp light for past 1000 miles. I thought one of the lamp is not functioning. Recently at the time of oil change at Firestone, they told me that they have to check the engine to find the fault. Thinking of going to Toyota dealer ASAP.
Pl. keep me updated.
