2004 Sienna Exhaust Noise

djflurrydjflurry Posts: 2
my sienna has a noise originating from the exhaust that sounds like a belt squeaking. the dealer has replaced the gasket 3 times. each time, the squeak goes away for several weeks to months, but then comes back. has anyone else had this problem and what is the final fix?

    Is this noise RPM related? Does it go away, or get quieter/louder if the gas pedal is pressed?

    the noise is heard when the vehicle is idleing and it can be very loud. it sounds like a belt squealing. the dealer has identified it as being associated with a gasket in the exhaust where the manifold connects to the rest of the piping. the gasket has been replaced multiple times but the noise returns within a few weeks or months. i was wondering if anyone had an alternate fix since replacing gaskets isnt working.

  • I replaced mine on my own. The dealership kept re adjusting the belts at my expense. As you said, it solved the problem for a few months but it's back again. I would love to hear if you solved this.

  • I just did mine a second time, and the noise returned two weeks later. Toyota had a service bulletin about this problem, but the revised gasket they offer doesn't actually fix the problem. Any updates would be appreciated.
