Question about 2006 Toyota Sienna
Especially when accelerating
A noticable ticking in the engine
Check the level of Oil in the reserve OIL reservoir.
The sound you hear is the auto-fill pump running on empty trying to top off the oil as it drops below 'SAFE' when cornering or accelerating. DO NOT IGNORE THIS
If the reservoir Oil level is OK, then you have a bad Oil-level sensor, pump or wiring. GET IT FIXED or you will lose your motor. Another possibility, the VENT hole in the cap of the Oil Reservoir is clogged, and won't let air in to push Oil out. Check by opening the cap and listening for Hssssssss sound. Clean cap well and Use a Toothpick to open the venthole again.
If it isn't a plugged hole, low Oil in the reservoir and the cost of FIXING is too high for you (as was for me at the time it failed) Disconnect your pump until you can afford the FIX, and Top off your engine oil manually. The wire is located immediately behind the reservoir
My Sensor cost $135.00, Pump was $229.00 - Find out if that is the problem and Check a Junkyard, Craigslist or Ebay
