Engine revs high before it kicks into 2nd and third gear.
No physical signs of leak, very minor so far. Why is the quote so high? Otherwise, car is in great condition. Should I go with agency or look elsewhere?
the other side won't open and close now
Door open lite is continually on with some lites constantly on, leading to drain on battery
I was hearing a constant chirping sound from the front right hand side of my 2009 Toyota Sienna 2 WD. I had replaced all 4 tires, front brake pads, front brake rotors, performed wheel balancing and alignment. My mechanic said the front right hand side wheel bearing needs to be replaced. Upon further examination he said the front axle bearing should also be replaced. I need to know how much cost (parts & labor) should I be expecting for this repair?
if I do several short cranks of starter then it will start ok. It seems like it takes a few seconds to get enough fuel to start. Each day it takes a little longer to start.
Check engine is on with TRAC OFF and VSC. I checked with OBD-II. It showed P0136 refer to Bank 1 Sensor 2. But at the same time I see voltage only on B1S2. Other o2 sensors without any voltage. What can you suggest? I replaced B2S1 front upstream, but no voltage through OBD-II.
the usual 'D' For drive does not move the car fast enough. it also revs to '3' on the odometer before the car moves. i hope the transmission is not bad yet
when I open door it doesn't latch into place and will potentially slide shut while someone is trying to climb in. Can I fix it so it latches?
Does the 2011 3.5l motor have a timing chain or belt? Whats the recommend mileage replacement interval for such?
the dashboard lights never come on which makes driving in the dark difficult. also when i turn the headlights on instead of day runners my radio lights go off? im guessing wiring, anybody have this happen
drove about 60 miles and then started to get a miss and loss of power (particularly up hill) and the check engine light was either flashing or steady.

borrowed a OBD tester and got codes P0303/0306 cylinder 3/6 misfire. I see a "square" module on the front of the engine near the oil cap with an ignition wire labeled "3" and a second connector that looks like it leads to a fuel injector. The connectors are a mystery as I cannot figure out how to open them.

Because of the engine "V" shape, I cannot see if there is a reciprical "square" module and is the problem in one, both or not these modules?
Why does my 2006 Sienna 3.3L auto transmission usually hesitate for a second ot two when stepping on the gas after coasting (i.e. taking foot off gas while turning a corner while van is still moving and stepping on the gas again)? It happens about 90% or more of the time. It happens when engine is warmed up. Engine RPM's rise about 100 to 200 when I step on gas without transmission engaging. Then while the van is still rolling forward in Drive transmission kicks in with a jerk and van starts to accelerate again. I have no transmission problems that I'm aware of and all maintenance has always been performed as scheduled. Van currently has 113,301 miles on the odometer. My dad's V8 Tundra automatic does the same thing. I've been driving this van for a year and it had just under 100,000 miles on the odometer at that time. The van has had this problem from the time I started driving it. The check engine light is off as well as all other warning lights. The van has always passed Illinois emissions tests. I use regular unleaded fuel, 87 octane, and STP total fuel system cleaner every 3,000 miles.
my lights went out to my dash, when i turn on headlights,my radio light goes out
Wife tried to open it during a cold freeze. Can hear motor turning but will not open. Only moves upward slightly, when button first pushed.
