  1. Hello, I'm looking into weight reduction and I'm trying to figure out the weight of the trunk and hood. I plan on replacing both however I've heard from one source that their 2000 IS has a 40 pound hood, another said mine is 80lb. Its a full steel hood so I'm hoping it's heavier than 40 pounds. Thanks.
  2. I’m debating adding a carbon fiber hood and trunk to my gs300. Possibly more if it really works. However after a bit of digging I’ve seen a mixed basket of opinions. Some saying their carbon fiber was heavier, not lighter and others saying it’s great. I’m not planning on everything becoming carbon fiber but like as I said above hood and trunk just to start. Do any of you have trusted brands you know work? Or sellers on eBay? Thanks!
  3. Is250 2006 150K RWD A960E Transmission Started with Transmission Codes after a dealer CSP of carbon cleaning. These two incidents could be completely unrelated. But then again there is evidence of other users with similar instances. Initial problems was Torque Converter Problem / VSC which transformed into my car getting stuck in 3rd gear and not going to the higher gears. RPM will be very high. This might be called a limp or safe mode to allow the car to drive. Codes P2757 and P0761 After much reading . I changed TCC and SLU solenoids along with a ATF filter and fluid change. Enough to get the color to change from black to something more red. Parts 35210-50010 (SL1/TCC) and 3528030050 (SLU) After the replacement car shifted smoother and the Torque converter code went away. But still not going out of 3rd sometimes. Code changed to P2714 and P0761 Solenoid C stuck off Iv checked the resistance of each solenoid and it was within the literature value of a certain Manuel or about 0.2 Ohms higher than high operating value. I thought this was ok? As the new part I got for the TCC was also 0.2 higher. I also used techstream to command each solenoid to perform. In most cases I can hear a faint sound when each is activated. Wish it has the pressure value of each solenoid ( I couldn’t find it on my version of TS) The only other steps outside of a new transmission would be ( none of which were said to be a definitive solution) Change transmission wire? ( how would one check this to know if its ok?) Replace Solenoid C 3524050030 Replace SLT 3529034010 Update Calibrations for transmission ( My dealer will not offer this said it won’t do anything) Does anyone have experience with these issues or have a solution?
  4. Hi. I'm looking to sell my 2003 GS300 dark gray sports design model 116k miles (clean interior). I don't know too much about fixing this car (AC, CV boots, door locks). it was in a little accident two months ago. How much should I sell this for? I'm getting a lot of different prices for this because there is a big demand for this particular model, but then there are some stuff that need to be fixed. I'm hoping $5300. My BF is trying to help me sell this car, but he is no help at all. :-(. Thanks for reading into this post.
  5. So im just wondering if im seeing this right .....i have been bitten by the apparent lexus goblin ....no response from gas pedal until the very bottom and search google found this cool site and posts from as far back as 2011 i believe and although i may have missed it NO SOLUTION....plenty of remedys and band aids but no real fix and lexus has been having these same problems with their cars from 98 to i think i saw someone post about a 2011 with the problem ...and still no solutions ...really? Or did i just miss them lol
  6. Hello Lexus drivers, I am driving on my Michelin winterset because i couldn't find something easy to mount for this summer. As you understand, my Michelins are loosing mm's very very fast so i am in a hurry here to change them. I drive a Lexus GS300 from 2004. Its still the old model though. No lowering at this point. Recently i found some very cool Ronal Startech's in 20 inch, 9j and ET35. The big question here is: Do they fit?? Here's a picture of the actual rimm.
  7. Just gutted my stock system from my 99 GS300. Headunit, amp and cd changer all worked except the lcd was going out on the display. I swapped in a touchsceen dvd with all the modern conveniences to bring it up to date. I don't have room to keep this stuff around on a shelf collecting dust so i'm open to offers. Thanks! lexus radio.pdf lexus radio2.pdf lexus radio3.pdf lexus radio4.pdf lexus radio5.pdf
  8. I know this is a long shot, but is there any out of the box solution to allow music to be played with minimal changes to the existing radio so music could be played from a USB thumb drive...I don't see a USB port and there's apparently no way to play music via BT. I have taken the car to the stereo shop and I have a cable that plays a very old version of iPod via AUX port...Was hoping to do something more simple with a USB if possible. Thanks.
  9. I have a 98 GS300 that I recently acquired with an electrical problem. It had about 6 to 8 blown fuses in the panel under the dash. Also, the previous owner hooked jumper cables up backwards and melted a big fuse under the hood (I think it was a 120A fuse for the alternator) it has a new fuse pushed down on top of the old one. I'm guessing I will probably have to replace the whole fuse panel under the hood. Anyhow, when I replaced the blown fuses under the hood (for wipers, ignition, radio, and I can't remember which others), the car started and ran, but the wipers won't turn off unless I disconnect the switch. The wipers are on the biggest fuse, and I'm thinking that maybe there is a short between the wiper circuit and the others with blown fuses, and since the the wipers have a much higher amp draw it is causing the smaller fuses to blow and giving power to the wiper circuit where it shouldn't be. I looked under the dash and hood and I can't see anywhere where the wiring harness is damaged. The plastic loom is intact throughout. I think my next step will be to pull the loom off and see if the wires have gotten hot and melted the insulation off. Has anyone seen this problem before? This is my first Lexus. Thanks in advance!

  12. Can the driver's seat bottom be replaced with the seat bottom from the passenger side ? I'm interested in replacing the driver's side front seat bottom, cushion and leather. After 17 years, mine is very worn. There are passenger side seats available from the recyclers, but I'm trying to determine if any parts can be used on the driver's side. Thanks!
  13. Where can I purchase headlamps for my 2006 GS300? I can only find up to 2005. Thanks in advance
  14. I have a 95 es300 with 154000 miles runs good but overheated on me I had low coolant and needed an oil change at the time. So I overheated on an offramp and my car shut off. A small amount of smoke was present but no sign of a leak anywhere. I got it home after adding more coolant and letting it cool down at a gas station. I changed the oil then I replaced the radiator cap. Mind you Ive been adding coolant before I knew you had to bleed it. Incident number 2 happened today. I was running fine from Inglewood to Santa Monica. Then from there to long beach. After getting off the freeway it got hot again I pulled over and saw the coolant reservoir bubbling. After sitting it we added more since all the coolant was gone after. I bleeded the coolant this time. Or the best way I could under the circumstances. I was able to get home on a normal temp level. But once I got home I realized that I was driving all day with my damn e brake on. Long I know. I just wanted to give everyone the best details I could for the best help. For now it runs normal. But I wanna be able to trust my old lady. I pray its not a gasket, its not leaking or smoking please anything that I could do before it gets to that point
  15. 2000 Lexus Gs300 platinum edition SILVER WITH GRAY interior, Whats up guys, just wanted to give everyone the opportunity to possibly grab some parts you may need before i sling this thing to the retirement yard. It has 97,000 miles on her I believe, it could have even been 93,000 and im just mistaken. Anyhow, car was totaled in the rear end, driver spun out in the rain hitting the rear to the center divider. Its Silver with the Gray interior. Lots have been removed and sold from the body, but feel free to ask for whatever you may need, hopefully ill be able to help you out. Lots of the enterior is available if not most! If you would like pictures of anything, feel free to ask and I will take as many as youd like k. car is straight from the rear doors forward but I think the rear passenger door may have verrrrrry small damage at the corner, anyhow everything is for very cheap, def. worth your while. Interior is in great condition. Local pick ups welcome, and I will ship anything youd like as well. Feel free to send me a msg any time, or text me which would be the quickest form of communication k. (818)402-two three, zero three. thanks guys.

  20. Hey everyone, I have been told that I need to replace my caliper brackets but cant seem to find just the brackets anywhere. Any reccomendations?
  21. Howdy, I recently moved to California with a 93 GS300 with 166,000 miles on it. We towed it here from TX and drove it around a bit - ran just fine. We had problems getting the title so the driving around stopped for a few months - now we have the title but the car won't start. Checked the battery and it's just fine - meaning it's 'prolly the starter or solenoid -I am guessing- and we will have to pay someone to tow and do the work because we live in an apt that bans that sort of thing. Add to this that we have to get it probably altered and then smog checked and we haven't even registered it yet due to some financial concerns. My question is should we keep or throw? I don't want to put a bunch of $ into a car that isn't going to be around long. Help?
  22. I HAVE A 93 GS300 WITH AN AUTOMATICE TRANSMISSION THAT IS SLIPPING. WILL A AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FROM A SC300 CAPABLE OF WORKING IN MY 93 GS300? DEBATING IF I CAN GO THAT ROUTE OR REBUILDING MY TRANSMISSION. ADVICE PLEASE

  24. My dad and i have just purchased a 94 gs300 with 86000 mi and the ac will only blow hot air, the compressor has started in the past briefly as a test, i am not exactly sure how but it involved a modified relay after starting the car. the person we bought if from claimed to have filled the Freon and tested a new relay both did not work permanently.
  25. I need a gold-colored hood for a 2000 gs300. I'd rather just bolt-on a used one for now even if it isn't a perfect match. Not interested in a major repainting right now and don't want to do just the front. Can anyone help? Gold hoods seem to be hard to find. Many thanks.
