Hi. Did you ever get the name of the dealer that had the resolution to this problem? My wife's car started this today and I want to resolve this under warranty ASAP. Thanks!
#23 of 24 Fuel Injection Issue Resolved
Nov 28, 2011 (7:11 am)
My starting issue was finally resolved, but by far it was not an easy task. The dealership finally replaced my fuel injectors and I have not had any more starting issues since.
As you can see from the previous posts, your more than likely going to have to make a many trips to the dealership.
I had all my work done at Don McGill Toyota in Houston, Texas. I don't believe your going to find a Toyota dealership that is going to willing want to do the work. The service sheet for parts and labor totaled over $1,400.00, but fortunately for me the warranty covered it.
The service manager was very very hesitant, but one day to the next he suddenly said he was going to do it. He mentioned that a Toyota specialist was in town to look at another vehicle, he says he remembered my Sienna and happened to ask him if he'd ever heard issues with the fuel injectors. The specialist noted that there was a bad batch of fuel injectors that got out and this was apparently the only reason he did the work.
I would highly recommend you have the dealership do an in line fuel injection service. This is about a $200.00 service, but it can weed out a lot of problems. I did not have all the other things replaced like a few of the other guys. The main problem to me is apparent because all I had done was the replacement of the fuel injectors. If you just now began to have starting/cranking issues, my only recommendation is that you start taking it to the dealership to leave a paper trail. This was an expensive headache for me because even taking it to the dealership costs me time and money.
One of the biggest factors is that my Sienna never threw a code - And if its not throwing a code the dealership will keep trying to convince you that there's nothing wrong with it.
