#249 of 460 Sienna 2002 - Stops when idling
Jun 21, 2007 (1:05 am)
2002 Sienna Symphony. Tire Pressure check light was up. Took it to a gas station and adjusted the tire pressure and reset the "tire pressure" warning button.
I started the car but it stops right away when I take my leg off the gas pedal (idling??). Towed the car to the Toyota Dealer. They called me after 5 hours and said they could not reproduce the problem and computer diags do not show any issues.
I am afraid to drive this on the HWY just in case it stalls on me while I break or something. Have anyone experienced this problem before? Should the Toyota mechanic look into this more rather than relying on the computer diags?

i have 07 sienna XLE Limited FWD with all options, the NEW 3.5L engine, a friend of mine has 06 XLE with similar option, with the old 3.3L engine, I for some reason seem to hear more grunt or noisier engine compared to my friends 3.3L, has anyone heard this?

That's fine, the normal interval is actually 5000 miles, but due to the length of time I'd stick with your plan.

It's not just your impression, the new engine is louder. For starters, it uses a timing chain instead of a timing belt.
However, Toyota added more sound insulation in the firewall and under the doors. I have a PDF that even shows where they did this.
#254 of 460 Rear Hatch
Jun 26, 2007 (5:13 am)
Just bought an 07 LE, the hatch seems very hard to open and close for my wife and kids, it is just us, and is there anything to do about it?

Keep in mind the LE models have an electric close-assist latch, so press the button to release the lock and wait a second before you lift it so it can let go.
To close, just drop the hatch. The electric latch will close it, so you don't have to slam it.
CE models do not have this, those have regular manual latches.

Thanks, it just seems that it's hard to pull it down enough to get to the point where it closes. And when opening, even after the lock is opened it seems a little hard to pull it up. The kids are especially having a time with it, but on my caravan they did just fine.

Look at SiennaClub forums they have dealers to sell for about $900 or so.
