how long does it take to change spark plugs in an 06 sienna?

Asked by Jun 02, 2016 at 08:06 AM about the 2006 Toyota Sienna XLE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our mechanic claimed it took him 4 hours to change 6 spark plugs in our 06
sienna. He charged us $105/hr labor plus $20 per spark plug for a total of
$540. That seems high to me since the dealership charged $565 and they are
usually much more expensive.

$455 standard rate. $355 good, $550 less good. 2 hours max time Maybe he had to extract a broken plug not very common...

If you like your mechanic and you trust him- have him show you under the hood how accessible the plugs are- ask him to explain it- without anger! some of those plugs can be really buried- if you can't see the plugs, that may explain it- I don't know much about this vehicle, so I don't know personally, but this is a common problem with modern V6s

Thanks for the help. I went in armed with your information and some research I did on the Sienna's spark plug change issues and steps. The owner of the shop took $100 off my bill after a ten minute pleasant discussion about the job. I was key to have knowledge from you all and be able to ask informed questions. Will give this shop another chance, but before I agree to work, I will be doing my research to make sure the cost is fair.

See here... https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion- t37104_ds529602 The Sienna's are crazy when it comes to the rear 3 spark plugs. You have to take the manifold off to get at them (which is a HUGE job). I attempted to avoid doing this (read the thread), and it didn't work out so well. :(
