Toyota Sienna LE: the van kicked out cam sensor code, the second

Customer Question

the van kicked out cam sensor code, the second one was crank sensor code, and the third one was random misfire. Ok we changed the cam sensor and it still acts like its missing every now and then.

autodoc_2000 :

Are any of these your codes? P0014, P0015, P0024, P0025,
P0017, or P0018. If so Toyota has a TSB for replacing timing componants. It does sound like your timing is off. If this were belt driven I would say you need a timing belt, but since it is chain driven I did some research and this is what I found.

Customer :

i dont hear no ticking or clicking noise motor sound good and healthy its just got a miss in it and when u pull up to a stop sign with your foot on the brake if you take your foot off the brake with it in park just idoling it dont miss

Customer :
autodoc_2000 :

Are any of those codes present? The TSB Says Ticking noise OR MIL with those codes listed. I read responses for other Siennas and the rough running would come and go because the cam sprockets were loose causing it to work ok then change to running rough. Do you have the ability to perform a compression test when it is running rough?
