Hi I have a 2008...
Hi I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna & recently when only taking left curved turns at around 35mph I hear a ticking from the right passenger FRONT area of my van...Then yesterday I heard the noise coming from the left driver side of my van going on a curve at around 35mph
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: It's been a few months but & then yesterday it's coming from under the FRONT right side of the van & then yesterday now the left as well makes the same noise when making curve in the road turns to the left or towards the right
JA: Are you fixing your Sienna yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Now here is the fun part I just got on the freeway & now my VAC & TRAC OFF LIGHTS ARE BOTH ON but no check engine light
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I can't fix it my self but can I keep going on the freeway or do I need to get towed to a dealership or repair place it runs but I don't like the way it feels or looks on my dash with the LIGHTS on

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. What the clicking noise is, is the CV axles. These axles start to click like this when they malfunction. The trac and vac lights being on, are like a result of the wheel sensor being damage or unable to read the ABS ring on the CV axle.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

If the axle completely malfunctions, then you will be stuck because the vehicle will be unable to move.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

I would not be on the highway, though. You should have this repaired ASAP.

Is this repair going to be really expensive? Like $300.00USD

It is on both sides, correct?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

One moment, please, for labor information.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
its mainly been on the right side of the vehicle around right curves at 35mph but now yesterday I noticed the left on a left curve at 35mph too...I don't have that much money for repairs right now & I drive this is my only vehicle I own for work to earn money.

With both side being done, you are looking at around 4.4 hours of work plus parts and taxes. The labor price depends on the amount the shop charges per hour.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

If the shop charges $100 per hour, then you are looking at $440 plus parts, which are like $50 each.

Will I need breaks or new sensors too?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I will need to go now so that I can call around to get this done somewhere today I can't be with out my vehicle...Can You recommend anyone for me in Stockton, CA

The most the you should be looking at is $600. Although, you may find a corner shop to do the job for less. You may need the sensors or the lights may have been a result of the ABS ring located on the axle. When the mechanic removes the wheel he will know. If the brakes are good, you wouldn't need to replace.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
is there a chance that if I drive due to the ABS ring being on the axle that I won't be able to stop or lose my breaks too?
