Question about 2008 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

2008 Toyota Sienna

When stopping, the van seems to accelerate a bit when it downshifts. RPM's will jump from 800 to 1200. Dealer machanic said this is normal. Doesn't seem normal.

    Since I haven't received a response (solution) yet, maybe I was unclear. When stopping (a slow stop) the RPM's will jump for just a second. This happens 2 -3 times per stop. That is why I think it occurs when the car downshifts. Any response anyone can give would be great.

Symptoms are those of a clutch up for replacement. There's a thin layer of clutch plate left before the rivets holding the plates hit the metal clutch surface. The effects you describe are quite normal.

There are 2 flavors of clutch replacement - new and refurbished. Both usually can be obtained through a WV dealer. The difference is usually warranty and price.

I am experiancing the same thing with my 02 T&C. When the van is shifting out of OverDrive, it is briefly in nuetral causing the van to seem to jump forward, then it shifts hard into a lower gear. I have found that keeping the van in "3" instead of "D" prevents the hard downshift. I am still trying to determine how to permanetaly fix the problem, but until then I keep it in third unless I hit the highway.

Check your fuel vapor recovery system, your van has unusual set up, and the effect is RAW fuel gets purged, rather than vapor.
The dead giveaway test is does the issue happen on light acceleration? Does it stop if you let off the throttle? Can you accelerate harder and "get past" the issue?

Try a tranny service change a place that changes the filter the pan gasket and fluid not some of these quick places that just drain a couple quarts out of the tranny lines and thats it that wont help but a complete tranny service should help.

Accelerator pedal occasionally sticks off idle


Hello There.

Doesn't sound serious just need to WD40 and grease the throttle cable and mechanism. It'll also be good if you do the same at the pedal end, this will solve your proble.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me on fixya.

Thanks

one unit that operates ratio changes and is connected to the engine is that vacuum operated actuator on the transmission
it is possible that that unit is failing , vacuum hose is leaking and that will cause ratio changes as the vacuum varies
run the fault codes to check for wiring problems or VSS or TCM problems as well
