Here is the procedure from the service manual. I would add just one thing. Do each wheel in this order

  1. right rear wheel
  2. left rear wheel
  3. right front wheel
  4. left front wheel

HINT: If any work is done on the brake system or if air in the brake lines is suspected, bleed the air from the system.

NOTICE: Do not let brake fluid remain on a painted surface. Wash it off immediately.


b)BLEED MASTER CYLINDER HINT: If the master cylinder has been disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder.

c)Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder. SST 09023-00100 Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.

Block off the outlet plug with your finger and release the brake pedal.
Repeat (b) and (c) 3 or 4 times.


1. Connect the vinyl tube to the caliper or wheel cylinder bleeder plug.
2. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
3. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug, then release the brake pedal. Torque: (Bleeder plug) Front brake caliper
: 8.3 Nm (85 kgf-cm, 74 inch lbs.) Rear wheel cylinder: 8.5 Nm (87 kgf-cm, 75 inch lbs.)
4. Repeat (b) and (c) until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
5. Repeat the above procedure to bleed the air out of the brake line for each wheel.

CHECK FLUID LEVEL IN RESERVOIR Check the fluid level and add fluid if necessary. Fluid: SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3

No special tools needed, just a 17mm, 21mm. I do not recommend people without training do their own brakes, it is too dangerous to risk peoples lives just to save a few bucks. Also, any pads other than Toyota's will make noise and squeal, so if noise will bother you, use Toyota pads and resurface the rotors.

SOURCE: how to do front brake on 2008 toyota sienna

No special tools at all. Are you familiar with doing brakes? I wouldnt recommend it for a first timer, its not worth the lives of you and others. Ive also seen people take the wrong bolt out of calipers and spend triple what a brake job cost because they werent experienced and wanted to save a buck. A 17mm and pad spreader or big channel locks is all you need. Use Toyota pads and have the rotors cut..OR... Dont complain when they make noise all the darn time!

Being 2002, its probably has original feon in the systems, you sysytem may be low and needing recharging, recharge the sysytems will tell you exactly what your problems is. If your compressor is not kicking on, mean you either low on feon Or the presure swicth may be faulty, if not than it would be your compressure, ect....., have it rechage first before anything, that may solve your problems..if the system is low on feon the systems will not run period.

What is the brake bleed order on a 2007 toyota sienna?

Although many people believe that the order makes a difference in their particular vehicle, there are many others who service many different makes and models of vehicles and generally conclude that the order makes no difference.

"I have investigated this brake bleeding sequence controversy and went interviewing professional mechanics from Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Toyota, Volkswagen etc. including from Pep Boys just to get to the bottom of the story. If you use the pressure or vacuum bleeding or the manual pedal method correctly, the sequence does not matter.

So I built a test rig using clear and transparent brake lines with 4 different color brake fluids. Whether you start from the farthest or the nearest brake caliper, the brake system could be bled correctly without compromising safety. This is a myth (RR, LR, FR, FL sequence) that has been accepted by most people.

What I found out was that people who use the farthest method sequence have not tried other sequences because they believe it is the only way to do it. While others who used random bleeding succesfully know sequence is not mandatory."

I'm a "random bleeder" myself, and have never had a problem. I simply proceed either clockwise or anti-clockwise around the car, for simplicity.

What order do I bleed my brakes on my 2000 toyota sienna?

Locate the master cylinder. Do the wheel furthest away, and bleed each one to the closest to the master cylinder. Longest pipe to the shortest pipe. I saw an advert for a neat gadget that presurises the fluid from the wheel bleed valve and makes it run to the master cylinder. No pressing of the pedal with an assistant.

My toyota sienna 2002 turn on and goes in gear but when i accelerate forward it stalls

Check fuel pressure...may not have enough to drive.
Clogged air filter can choke it out....I've seen mice and stuff clog up pipes to filter/air intake.
Make sure car is rolling normally....Stuck brakes can cause it not to move well.
Good Luck

Brake pedal goes almost to the floor on a 2004 Toyota Sienna Van. Seemed like defectice master cylinder. Replaced master cylinder with same results after multible bleed attemps

Your getting air in your system from some where. check all lines for leaks and re-bleed the lines starting from the farthest bleed valve first, working you way closer to the master cylinder. Do not let the brake fluid reservoir run dry while you are doing this.

2005 Toyota Sienna Front Brake Question

No....just compress the piston slowly so you don't force the fluid out of the reservoir. The only time you need to bleed the brakes is if you replace a wheel cylinder, hose or get air in the master cylinder....usually by running it too low in fluid level. If you are just changing the, you don't have to open the bleeder.
