Toyota Sienna 2011 - Transmission issue??

Asked by Aug 25, 2017 at 11:59 AM about the 2011 Toyota Sienna

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Toyota Sienna 2011, around 85,000 miles.  We were driving on the
highway and everything seemed fine and suddenly just "revved" when we hit
the gas and didn't accelerate.  Tried several times to restart and drove fine
for few second then did it again.  "Jumped back" a few times when in drive.
VSC display warning came on and also engine light on.  AAA towed to a
local garage.  Transmission extended warranty just expired less than a
month ago, but I'm guessing this is what it is?  Anyone else have similar
problems with a 2011 Sienna?

Might be a trans sensor or solenoid, the shop can scan the vehicle for the codes since the lights came on.

I have same issue with 2012 awd. Any suggestions?

Any suggestions on what is wrong? Seems as though they are all about remove and replace at Toyota as opposed to fixing. This mentality drives me nuts. The tranny can't be all bad being so new, I have to replace the whole tranny with a factory "rebuilt" for $5000+ so you can replace a cheap $100 sensor or solenoid in my old one and sell it to the next guy as rebuilt for $5,000+. "Its a Sealed transmission requires no maintenance" says Toyota Dealership. What a scam, Toyota sure has changed in the 2000s, figured out they were missing out on all that sweet, sweet repair cost money Ford and General Motors have always enjoyed! Jerks.
