I will be taking it to a mechanic next Tuesday so good or bad I should know soon. When I mentioned the problem to the mechanic (he is a certified Honda Mechanic) he thought based on what I described he said it might be an engine misfire, although the OBD II does not indicate such. I should mention my van makes the noise between 2000 and 2300 rpm. I will update next week.

I took my van to a mechanic and he determined that it was a loose heat shield by the cat converter. A simple gear clamp wrapped around it and tightened fixed the problem. To find out if it's the same problem, tap your rear exhaust tip with your hand (after it's cooled) and if you hear a bumping noise that's the problem. You might need someone else to tap it as you listen for it up front.
He charged me $20 bucks and I haven't heard the noise since.
Good luck with yours. Keep me updated.

Just a quick update, the noise was from the shield that is near the flexible Y pipes which are up close to the engine, the shield was vibrating and causing the noise. Hope this helps, another place to look to resolve the problem.

Gotta love any $20 fix in this day and age.
#44 of 79 Front end noise over 10mph

We have a 2004 Sienna. The van shifts well, and it is not the exhaust. It sounds like a loud revving at all speeds over 10 mph. But the trans shifts fine. If we get up to speed and put it in neutral, the noise is still there. Any ideas?

I would check out the heat shield on the cat or the heat shield by the Y pipe up near the engine(my exhaust system had this but it was an after market) If the heat shield is loose an cant be fixed, remove it but don't park in long dry grass.

#47 of 79 sound like revolving fan blades hitting some obstacle
Apr 16, 2010 (1:43 pm)
I recently bought a used 2007 Sienna LE. Since the first day I drove the car home, after I stop and park the car, I hear a metal clanking noise from the hood, it sounds like revolving fan blades hitting some obstacle, the noise subsides gradually. I took the car to the dealer and the mechanics concluded the noise to be "normal" ... is it so? Please help!

You sure it's not the popping sound caused by contracting metals as they cool? Most cars I've had did that to some extent.

I have a 2008 Sienna CE that has had noise in the rear passenger side sliding door since it was purchased. I took it to the dealer early on and they took the door apart and found no loose parts. The noise continues and I would describe it as "body" noise. The dealer sent me to their body shop and they "pulled the door in" with whatever moveable parts allowed it. The noise continued and the body shop gave me a can of drylub to spray the latch and the gaskets which seems to help for a few hours. The noise continues and seems to be worse as the car now has 36,500 miles The noise actually seems to be in both sliding doors. I have had people ride in the back and they believe the noise is in the column with the front seatbelt. I think the noise is more generally around the door or latches. Anyone with any suggestions or recommendations, besides a new car.
