  1. Hi Micah Thanks for your response, i believe LS doesn't allows slow cranking, it will just go blank without giving any signs of warning unlike older mechanical cars in which it will try to crank slowly if the battery is weak Master key- unfortunately not, i still use the valet key, The only thing i noticed that the ABS light was glowing till the end and then when you crank no breathing at all, on the other hand the moment i connected the jump cables with another car just to test ABS light went off This is just my assumption Hi Vissine If the car is not cranking up then it should give proper codes otherwise it will turn the game into guess work which is very dangerous, from what i have researched it all depends on the capability of the code reader both the hardware and the software
  2. very well maintained car, great job
  3. Some pictures would help a lot please
  4. Hi Guys Car is back up online and firing up just perfect This time i tried to take a jump cable from another car and that did the trick, i then purchased a new battery 80 Ampere L type (positive terminal on the left hand side) and car cranking and firing up like a dragon Attached is the OBD code screenshot which i tried to pull when the car was not starting, maybe my code reader is not capable of giving me the proper codes? I believe the only way to find out that whether your battery died on you or not is to look for the ABS light, if it stays on then time to bring a new battery, but relying on the ABS light might not be the proper way to check/identify the battery problem
  5. Hi guys unfortunately i ran into the same problem again, no cranking just the cult classic single click sound i dont know what do now wife is saying sell the car once its fixed i am surprised that last night it was running perfect and this morning single click sound my goodness what a surprise i do notice one thing though that besides the CEL light the ABS light stays on and the moment i saw it i knew something was wrong and bang single click sound i am upset please help i do ran OBDII code reader but it is showing O2 sensor, insufficient coolant sensor, shift solenoid C, trans solenoid A
  6. In my small experience with my 98 LS 400, in tank full i easily get 300+Miles, one box of fuel indicator should give you 100 miles so we have 4 dividers in the fuel gauge it should give you 350Miles until light comes on
  7. Try rockauto.com, in my opinion its great with a huge selection of items
  8. Brembo for 15$ are you serious? where? when? I am using Sumitomo which is OEM here in UAE as per Toyota
  9. Yes Phil you are right 17 years old but these cars have a tendency to just live and keep on living for years to come by, i think the age of the car should be ignored completely when dealing with LS
  10. Hi Irascals and welcome to the forum I must that you made up the right choice! and 58k miles is pretty new some pics of the car would be great, and as Bob said it is best to keep it at stock and remain at stock, you can always invest in replacing OEM parts in the engine bay and keep your car as new as possible The first thing you should consider buying is the ODBII diagnostic code reader, it will help you alot
  11. Hi Phil and welcome to the forum i have 1998 with me, O2 sensors before the Cat. are easy, lift the car up and direct access, but after the Cat. are cumbersome i cannot think why lexus did that, since the electrical socket of the sensor is going up in the body from the exhaust, Wiring harness is underneath the drivers side carpet, now in order to remove the carpet you have to take the gas pedal out, The passenger side O2 sensor is also connecting up in the body and the harness underneath the carpet but in this case it is easy I have purchased Bosch sensors from rock auto, since they came with the exact length of wire PS: are you really sure that at 80k miles on the ODO your O2 sensors are fried?, i have 250k miles on my ODO and my O2's are working just fine (although i have purchased new ones but i am yet to install them, i did tried to install them here at a gas station mechanic told that i will not be able to install on the drivers side since it is difficult, so i left it as it is)
  12. Due to this sensor i am having check engine light and poor fuel economy, will keep you updated once i progress something, i think i should buy the whole timing belt kit with water pump and leave my car to a good garage and get everything done at once... because to repair only this small sensor it will be so labor intensive
  13. Hi Please could somebody help here please on how i will replace the turbine speed sensor?
  14. Hi Billy Could you please post a picture of that shield, it could save a lots of troubles to all the users around the globe for a small mod to save the alternator...
  15. Update: First of all it had been 3 days since i procured all the parts and was just carrying them in my trunk finding an inexpensive garage to fix everything Parts I bought Denso Iridium spark plugs AC cabin filter Engine Oil 10W40- ELF Transmission Oil- AC Delco T-III Engine Oil Filter Unfortunately in this part of the world when you go out to hunt for a reasonable garage it is just like finding a needle in the haystack since i cannot leave my car in the garage for n number of days In short all garages here were asking huge amount of money along with "leave the car" statement Anyway, i went to a petrol pump (we have shops named autopro for repairs) and asked about the price, they said since parts you are bringing we will take only labor charge which was very reasonable. So in 2 hours mechanic was able to replace all the 8 spark plugs, engine oil & oil filter, unfortunately i was not able to replace the O2 sensors since the mechanic said "sir the drivers side one is very difficult i cannot do it, i can change the other 3 if you want" i replied no leave it i will go somewhere else, indeed its difficult on the drivers side Also we were unable to replace the turbine speed sensor because of the following reason 1.) There is very tight space to take it out 2.) The bolt which holds the sensor is broken in my case 3.) The mammoth size transmission mount is in the way Here the quality of work is extremely horrible, they will just replace the part and thats it nothing extra i.e. cleaning, they will not clean an inch on their own, the whole engine block is in extremely dirty state Conclusion The car runs great with power like new, no check engine light
