#354 of 460 2002 Toyota Sienna - Need Advice
Jan 14, 2009 (1:32 pm)
I have a 2002 Sienna LE with 72,000 miles on it. I bough it used with 56,000 miles.
The vehicle runs good but, I was thinking about getting a Transmission Fluid change and Timing belt work done. The quotes here run at $650+Tax for Timing belt and $80+Tax for Transmission fluid change. Transmission fluid flush costs $165+Tax.
I see than some of you have mentioned Timing Belt can wait until 90,000 Miles. What do you say about 2002 model. Its 7 years old. And also can you advice if Transmission fluid drain and fill is sufficient or should I get a Transmission flush done.
I don't have much knowledge on these. Any advices welcome.

What does the owner's manual say?
Also, what does it say about age? The van is 7 years old. So if they say 7 years or 90k miles, you're still due.

I have an 00 and did the timing belt about 2.5 years ago at 90k.I think I paid about $300 for it though.There is a place here on edmunds about maintenance which will give you an idea what it should cost

The repair shops say - that the water pump needs to be replaced when they do the timing belt. They say, if the water pump breaks down later, it would be a pain as they have to redo a lot and labor costs would be high. Any ideas?

Like I said mine was done 2+ years ago and they did the water pump as well.My memory still says about 300.I checked the edmunds maintenance site and they said it should cost you about $220 to have the timing belt changed.I really don't know what a water pump goes for.
Mine was done at a Toyota dealership which was running a special at the time-still I think 600 sounds way too much.Try Pep boys see what they would charge you for a water pump
#359 of 460 Taillights and Brakelights, and Headlights, Oh my
Jan 17, 2009 (9:35 am)
My 2005 Sienna has a burnt-out bulb almost monthly! It's usually a different one but we've had some repeats. Has anyone else had frequent taillight, brakelight, and headlight outages?

I have a 2002 model with 100,000 Miles. When I come to a stop a strange noise from under the van. Any idea what this could be? .
#361 of 460 Parking/tail lights come on when I brake?
Jan 18, 2009 (2:01 pm)
2000 Sienna: This is a recent problem: The parking/tail lights do NOT come on when turned on with the switch - only the headlights come on. When the brakes are applied, ALL of the lights (including the front parking lights) come on. I have checked all of the fuses - Although I didn't expect to find anything since they all work at some point. Any clues? Thanks.

Thanks guys. I will check with the auto shops and ask them to just do the timing belt and leave the water pump out for now.
