should i worry about driving this car several hundred miles this weekend

Seat belt is attached to the captain chair. The recoil is extremely slow, in fact, it never goes back in when you unbuckle, it just hangs there. It will "lock" if you pull the belt really hard like if you are stopping short. But, if you are in the seat and lean forward too much and slow, you have to pull the belt to get it tight again. Make me nervous.

I replaced the front oxygen sensor myself,but the check engine light still on. Checked at a toyota dealer,they told me cause what i replaced is not a toyota original oxygen sensor, is that true?
Are there any way to fix it besides to use an original parts?

My wife drives our 2006 Toyota Sienna. The DRIVERS SEAT has literally fallen off its mounting.

She has found a use for those thick phone books delivered by TPC and has placed a brick & phone book under her seat to hold it in place.

This is, at best a temp fix.

What is the best low cost fix?

Does the seat need to be replaced or can it all be repaired?

Any other thoughts?

When I put it
in neutral the noise winds down till gone

05 Seinna, development of a small leak on right side. I eventually had the steering rack replacement with a rebuilt Cardon as can only get rebuilt unit if not buying from OEM Toyota. As soon as I drove felt hard to turn steering wheel to left. Not to right but left hand turns only. Took to Stealership and was told (internal) spool valve on pump, $788. $70 for diagnosis fee. Pass. I took to my mechanic who put on a Cardon pump for less than a $100 and three hours labor or about $280 total parts and labor. Same issue existed so no body at this point can tell is it the reman Cardon steering rack? Any ideas?

05 Sienna just turned to 100K miles, AC went out over night. My mechanic traces to a leak in the front evaporator. Stated he would not touch it as requires entire dash to be R & R. 9-10 hours of labor plus $1600 for the evaporator case. Plus, new drier, plus new exapnsion valve and orffice tube, etc. all new stuff that is best practice to replace at the same time as evaporator.

Anyone know if the evaporator case can be rebuilt with new parts and put back into service for less than $1600? Labor is what it is.

Earlier took 05 Sienna to Stealership for Dash cracks and after note from Toyota. Stealership stated that they were not authorized to replace dashes yet. Im thinking what if I want to sell now? Diminished value.

The cable on my Sienna for the electric sliding door snapped and I was quoted approx. $1200 to fix it. It is not part of the 04-07 recall for this problem. The door can still be opened manually however. Is it a problem to simply open manually as long as the cable is cut? Does it lead to other problems with the electrical components if we decided to get it fixed down the road? Thank you.

Someone who posted on this site suggested to purchase an OBD-II code reader. I did a search for this and many kinds showed up. What kind or type would you suggest?

Can I switch the driver side to the passinger side? Are they the same?

2005 Sienna runs well but failed NJ inspection with P0420 code (cat converter). One repair shop said not worth spending the $1,000 as it's only a matter of time something else will fail and it still may not pass inspection after the cat is replaced. . Another shop said it's worth replacing. Advice appreciated! guidance!

I had the heads replaced and van is running but is now a gasket or better yet a connection on the muffler near the engine is leaking. Also the bands are making noise. Could this be caused by the mechanics while changing the heads?

The car has (180,000 miles). My wife tells me when she started the car the AC would not come on, after a while the AC did come on. The car died in the middle of the road 15 minutes later. The scan gave a P0117 ECT circuit malfunction. It was about a gallon low on coolant. Reset the scan and no longer there is a code. The car still has the oil and the engine light on and will not start. it sounds like starter spins but engine does not crank. I would appreciate any advice.

Yesterday I had a question. Neede an answer

Just replaced rear shocks a week ago. Now,during cold backup, it feels like theres a block behind the rear wheels. A little extra gas,and the problem quits.

For us, only occurs turning to right. Clicking sound under dash, also. The correction just about rips the steering out of your hand. Dealer 'calibrated a sensor' for $500 and problem remains. Then suggested replacing steering column. Then leaking CV boots. Then bad front shocks....
Only had calibration done. The rest sounds like they are just shotgunning the problem.

Hi!
The legs of my Sienna get so hot as though the brake does not return properly. 1 day ago I hard a horrible experience where one of the rear hubs was very heated and was smoking and smelling like real fire, I was lucky to be able to cool it off with water, I feared the car was gonna get burnt. Often the Check VSC and TRAC OFF lights display on the dashboard. I called the mechanic who suggested the ABS module is bad though the ABS warning light doesn't display. Previously the brake system was going flat especially in the mornings and the mechanic suggested it was my brake masters and he had to change it, now I'm experiencing the hotness of the hubs. Please could this mean that the ABS module is bad even though it doesn't give me warning light?

Thanks.
