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

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.

One tip I'd say it to replace them in pairs.
Usually the 2nd one fails right after the first.
So if a tail light burns out, replace the other side at the same time, else you'll be doing it again a week later.
#365 of 460 PCV, fuel filter
Mar 07, 2009 (9:22 am)
I have an 06 LE with 64K miles, everytime I bring it to the dealer and ask if these need replacing he says no. They did "clean" the PCV once. Every other car I have ever owned has had it replaced before 60K. When is the PCV and fuel filter due to be replaced on this thing?? Is it a major hassle to replace the fuel filter so they don't want to do it as a preventive maintenance issue?

Here's a word to the wise, or at least I hope it is:
We purchased a 2007 Sienna new in April of 2007. We purchased the prepaid maintenance from the Toyota dealer when we bought the car. It covers scheduled maintenance for the first three years.
We just took the Sienna in for scheduled 15,000 mi. maintenance. This is our fifth visit since we've owned the car. Every time we've been in, without fail, the dealer has tried to get us to agree to pay for items that they "recommend". Today's nut would have been $329 if we had agreed to it. It included draining and refilling the transmission fluid, among other things. The only "extra" I've agreed to, in a moment of weakness, was a new cabin air filter, and I probably didn't even need that.
There isn't a manufacturer in the world, unless you're plowing snow or pulling stumps, that requires a transmission service such as this at 15,000 mi. After a brief and polite discussion we finally were able to make it clear to the service adviser that the only work we wanted them to perform was that which was covered under the prepaid plan. This includes any maintenance required by in the Toyota warranty book, including oil change and tire rotation.
I guess they're just doing their job trying to make a few extra bucks, but it's darn annoying to have to have this discussion every time we go to the dealership. Bottom line: beware of dealer service extras. Don't agree to them unless you think you really need them.
