#435 of 451 Fuel Pump Assembly
Dec 27, 2011 (12:13 pm)
My 04 XLE with 70k is having a little bit of a hard start problem that has been diagnosed as the fuel pump. Shop is pushing me to replace the fuel pump assembly. Difference in cost between a fuel pump and fuel pump assembly is about $400. Can anyone offer insight into which is the way to go? How much more work is it to replace the pump only?
Can anyone recommend and good online parts houses that I can source one from?
#436 of 451 2004 Sienna Fuel Pump Replacement
Jan 13, 2012 (1:03 pm)
My 04 XLE is in need of a fuel pump due to a hard start problem. The part is sold as an assembly, but also as just the pump. The mechanic really wants me to get the assembly, but it's about $200 more. What is the difference in labor with the two?
Additionally, what is the process to replace it altogether? How many hours am I looking at?

Lower, here are pics that should help:
Get an OEM filter. I bought a cheap FRAM replacement, and it had a lot fewer pleats. I won't make that mistake again.

This is nasty; no error codes per se, but "not ready" is going to be beyond the shade-tree mechanic.
Go to siennachat.org and ask around. With luck, someone has had this and can point you in the right direction.
OBD-II is fantastic when it works, and it has proven very reliable, but when the system fails, you gots trouble.
The googles and enthusiast's web sites are your friend.
#442 of 451 Oil Filter change in 2011 Sienna

Can anyone suggest a good wrench to remove the housing on a 2011 Sienna. I bought a $6 housing cap wrench at Autozone and it was just a little to big to get a grip. Do I just need to go to Toyota parts and get it?

I'm not familiar with the layout on the new ones; we have an '03.
But if it's halfway accessible, just get a strap wrench at the auto parts store... even my grocery store carries them.
I don't k now why the factory puts them on as tightly as they do. I spin them on and take them off by hand on both our cars.
#444 of 451 2001 Toyota Sienna LE - Check Engine Light - P0440, P0441 and P0446 Codes
Aug 26, 2012 (4:15 pm)
I have a 2001 Toyota Sienna LE with ~115,000 miles. It has the check engine light ON and is now due for inspection. The codes being read are P0440, P0441 and P0446 pointing to evap problem. I have already taken it to a local mechanic who is saying that he has thoroughly checked the emissions system (using smoke test) and found no leakages or cracks anywhere. He has now asked me to go to the dealer as it requires special diagnostics/tools that he does not have. In the mechanic's words, "you are at the mercy of a toyota dealer now". Can someone please help and advice what I can do to take care of this problem. My inspection sticker has already expired. Also, when I mentioned these codes to a local Firestone service manager, he was aking me to replace three items:
- Purge Valve
- Canister Shutoff Valve
Reading thru the information on the web, I am confused as to which valves are part of the canister and which are seperate from the canister. In other words, do I need to replace all valves seperately or are some of the values included as part of a new canister assembly. Thanks for your assistance.
