  1. Not all dealerships work the same way. Have another shop inspect your vehicle to ensure your vehicle truly does need all those repairs. If anything, you have the right to ask the service writer/mechanic to point out and show you the leaks around the engine. By owning any luxury or high end vehicle, you should already expect the service/repairs to be expensive.
  2. Does your ac compressor kick on when you enable the AC button? Does the condenser fan kick on? If anything check to see if your ac compressor isn't locked up. You can simply do this, by turning the outer rim of the ac compressor pulley (with the engine OFF!). If it's locked and won't budge....possibly a bad compressor. At any rate, just have a shop diagnose it.
  3. It's easier than you think. If you've done some on other vehicles, it's no different
  4. I just did one today. Nice write up
  5. Go to a Lexus dealership and get a battery there. Shouldn't be more than $120, and it's 5year warranty. I mean if you go anywhere else your gonna end up spending $100-$150 for a battery. I believe your battery should be rated at 575 cold cranking amps. Try eBay for your door handle or the junkyard.
  6. I've done a few WS atf adjustments. It's not fun. Not only that, but you need a computer to view the data list (to get the temperature correct) and the special service tools. Probably someone tried replacing the ATF to your vehicle and did not perform it correctly, in return it damaged the transmission. Bring it to the dealership, this best and wise choice you can do now is pay for a diagnostic fee. They can provide you a true understanding of what is going on with your transmission.
  7. Bring it to the dealer, you may still be covered under factory warranty. Does the car have less than 50k miles? Possibly eligible for a transmission replacement
  8. Also have them perform a pressure check on the pump and rack. There's a gauge tool they can hook up in place of the high pressure line.
  9. Have the Toyota technician run a health check with their scanner and see if any power steering codes are present.
  10. Does the power steering pump make any unusual noises while the engine is running? Check the tension on the belt with engine off, make sure it's not loose and inspect it while it's running. And does the steering issue occur at any speed?
  11. Not a good idea. You need a specialty transmission fluid tool to perform this procedure. And the transmission fluid temperature has to be in parameters to check for proper fluid level. Besides, your vehicle is still new, why are you even trying to replace the Transmission fluid? If anything take it to the dealership.
  12. It's best if you bring it to the dealership to perform this update. You need the Lexus NAV update equipment.
  13. Heres an LC500 in person. It's awesome. I can't wait to get into this thing and test drive. It was dropped off at one of our Lexus training centers.
  14. What vehicle is it? And can you take/ post some pictures up?
  15. I think he was referring to the power steering pump.
