The sienna costumes alot of gasoline
It started yesterday out of the blue. I can start the car and it immediately drops in idling power and shuts off. It will not stay on. when i put the key in the start position before ignition, there is a whirring sound for two seconds. I really need help as this is my only car. It is a 2001 toyota sienna minivan.
The EVAP code 440 was returned. Did a smoke test and found a plastic valve on top of the gas tank is leaking. Very hard to get to and because of the age and rust this is going to be a bigger job than it should. Cannister and other valves OK. Anyone else encounter this?
My 2008 Toyota Sienna LTD was running smoothly. While driving home from vacation suddenly the check Engine light and VHS light came on (after about 60 miles run on the day). Within 10 min I stopped at rest area. While I was parking, a white smoke was coming and steering was getting hard to move. Later, I found, the radiator was out of coolant. The car was not getting started. After adding 2 bottle of water in the radiator reservoir, finally the car was started and I was back on highway to take next exit to add coolant. But within 10 min Check Engine light & VHS light came back and car slowing down and was making noise while pressing accelerator. The car stopped in the exit ramp and later towed to Firestone. They expected head gasket issue and estimated 5k and Toyota dealer estimated 8k. I towed the car at home and added I gallon of coolant. The car is not getting started. I found the spring & broken rubber part of Radiator cap underneath the radiator cap while opened.
I am very disappointed for this situation though I really loved this van & all it's features and planned on keeping it another 5 years based on Toyota's 200,000 mile reliability. But now, I am not sure whether it is worthy to fix it. Is Toyota is responsible to this head gasket issue or there should be a recall to fix the issue? I would never buy any of the Toyota vehicles.
