  1. I believe spark plugs are due.
  2. Wow that Celsior is gorgous...
  3. Welcome aboard, and great set of wheels.
  4. You may have a stuck thermostat....
  5. You know I loved the look of the old Honda Accord wagon...They are probably quite rare. four windows down at 60mph....not very aerodynamic, but what the heck.
  6. Did they give you the codes? We cant help you without them.
  7. Sounds like the strut, or struts are weak.
  8. Lord, why do car manufacturer try to make a simple fluid level so difficult?
  9. You may have a dirty Idle Air Control Valve. Search cleaning the IACV valve and try that. The throttle body may be sticking in unwanted positions.
  10. By the way if the compressor clutch is bad, it can be replaced independently of the compressor.
  11. I had a compressor clutch freeze up on another vehicle and it burned the belt so bad that the belt broke and wrapped around the crankshaft pulley.
  12. Frankly flushes on high mileage transmission is kiss of death. If a fluid exchange is done (transmission pump is used for the exchange) than it is ok, but a flush machine drives the metal debris thru tranny and probably into the valve body assembly which is death to the transmission. With Loss of overdrive you should be experiencing a check engine light with pending codes. Either that or your check engine light is burned out. Another note sometimes the shift linkage comes loose and the gears are not selected properly. Couple of people over the years have found that. I feel the biggest problem is that the original 1999 tranny had a aluminum planetary gear carrier which eventually wears and than causes the failure of the gears because they drift in the aluminum carrier causing failure. All on this site and the other lexus site agree a flush is not good. I know I tried it once on my RX300 when I loss overdrive and it only got worst.
  13. Check the air conditioning belt, Maybe the air conditioning pump is freezing up and causing the belt to stall.
