Serious issues with my 2008 Toyota Sienna. Could someone help me out.
Got a call from my wife last night and the minivan stopped driving before she got home. The engine didn’t shut off, it just wouldn’t accelerate and only glided to a stop. She limped it home over about 1 mile, having to glide it to the side of the road 4 more times on the way. After it would sit for a few minutes with the engine off, she would start it again and it would drive for a bit further and then the accelerator became unresponsive again.
Today, I went out to try it out. I warmed it up for 10 min to check the transmission fluid. Checked the transmission fluid and it’s a thick reddish-brown slog and it’s over the maximum line. When I put it into drive to get it up the hill into my garage, it just rolled backward into the road. No response in reverse, no response in drive.
I turned the van off for ten minutes and then went back out and started it again. I put it in drive and it went into gear and right up the hill and into the garage. I shut it off before any more trouble. Just checked the engine coolant and the coolant has turned into a thick, greyish mud.
Like I said, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
