  2. Water Pump

    Hello All, Is there a "better" aftermarket water pump brand that is more compatible for the 2000 LS400? Quite certain of noise from the bearing on mine. Sending it to an independent Tuesday AM. My first time using this company.
  3. 98 LS400 Instrument Panel/Gauges

    I do however wonder how does it get reprogrammed to have the correct mileage and etc.
  4. 98 LS400 Instrument Panel/Gauges

    I see. Yes I called the dealer to confirm yesterday and the part they gave was the computer meter plate that is essentially a part of the instrument cluster. Lexus Part No.: 83277-50190 PLATE,COMPUTER METER CIRCUIT NO.1 Might as well purchase the entire cluster vs. Paying $1300 just for the circuit board.
  5. 98 LS400 Instrument Panel/Gauges

    Mine has the same problem. The gas meter shows more gas than what is really in the tank. I replaced the fuel sender located in the tank but that didn't fix the problem which was very disappointing. My next guess is the instrument cluster.
  6. Yesterday
  7. My 1998 LS400 had fully functioning fuel gauge until one day this past week I noticed it stayed full beyond what it should have. Towards the end of the tank it dropped to half. I just replaced the fuel sender with a brand new OEM and the fuel marker stayed at half even though the tank was mostly empty. I am puzzled and frankly not sure what to do anymore. I don't want to spend a fortune fixing the instrumentation cluster and see the problem still persisting. Fortunately the trip computer seems to be working so I have a good idea when the gas tank is getting low. Actually a little annoyed cause the original fuel sender is probably working fine. fuelsender

    Is this what you need?
  10. Car wont start '98 LS 400

    M.Yasir, I think the codes could happen to occur when a car does not start and one tries to crank it over. When the car could not start up at all, I think the ECM was thrown a bunch of incomplete messages (reports) and result a bunch of bad reports. It happened to me once when my car did not start and reading codes gave me a long list (O2 sensor, ... you name it). But it was MAF problem. I replaced it, reset all the codes and it was fine.
  11. 98 LS400 Instrument Panel/Gauges

    This is what the dealer explained to me as the fix. Informed that my fuel gauge is reading more gas than what is actually in the tank, thus I have been driving with far less gas frequently impacting the fuel pump. They replaced the fuel pump and identified the issue at that time. The entire gauge cluster would need to be replaced to fix the issue with the fuel reading.
  12. Car wont start '98 LS 400

    I had the same problem. Click once or twice each time I turned the key. After 7-8 tries it would finally start. I found a remanufactured Denso starter for $129 on Amazon and paid a mechanic who said it was a strenuous job 5 labor hours to put it in. Car starts great now.
  13. 98 LS400 vibration above 72 mph

    I had the same issue on my 1998. Previous owner had cheap tires. I had those balanced but still vibrated a little. I put new Michelins and it went away. I noticed though going 95 MPH or more the car would shake. Make sure your tire pressure is around 34/35 PSI. I had mine at the in car panel recommendation of 29 which is fine for slow driving but not for highway. High speed needs firmer tires.
  14. 98 LS400 Instrument Panel/Gauges

    What do you mean by "fuel sensor"? I am experiencing issues with my fuel gauge showing high gas reading when I know for a fact my gas tank has far less on my 1998 LS400. I just bought an OEM fuel sender but after reading some posts I'm skeptical this might fix my problem. Dealer wanted $850 to replace fuel sender. I found an OEM part for $138.
  15. ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING THE BATTERY

    This is an old post. I think you fixed it by replacing the alternator or fixing the connectivity. Battery is charged with higher voltage than 12.3V.
  16. Alternator Going Bad? Please Look

    I cut a plastic bottle to cover half right of the alternator hoping to shield it from leaking ps fluid. Although my alternator has lifetime warranty, I do not want to deal with the connector on the alternator. It is stuck and easy to break since it is too old.
  17. Car HUD

    Thanks for the confirmation. I will give it a try. It looks nice and convenient.
  18. How To Fix Your Speedometer Needle

    The only fix on my car is a quick hit (with my palm) on top of the instrument display. Happened to me several time: the speed was dead, but RPM needle still worked. Fix like a champ.

  20. Transmission problem?

    Thanks billydpowell. I guess when I am at it, I will apply voltage to each solenoid to see responses and measure ohm.
  21. '92 LS400 cold start stumbling

    Yes, the alternator is working great. I have a one extra question. Where is the fuel filter on these cars? I can not see it, even with a flashlight. I want to change the filter as this could be my problem Thanks for your comment
  22. Last week
  23. Hi Nathan. I apologize for not connecting with you sooner. I am always amazed at the depth of friendship and caring that can be built with someone you have never met nor never knew what they looked like. The LOC is a place where those who enjoy their hobby can find others who like swapping stories with like minded friends. Landar was a great part of the LOC and was a great source of Lexus info and technical help. Thank you for letting us share your journey. Paul

    NOTE all trannys are not the same but maybe these charts will give you some directions;

  26. In need of advice

    I would imagine it is coded to the car...you either need to get it coded to yours or you would need the immobiliser system to match the ECU
