I brought a 2007 Lexus is350 5 months ago and about 3 weeks ago it started making a really strange noise when I started it, then it would go away. A week ago I went to turn it on and it didn't start. It was trying but wouldn't spark. Took it to a mechanic who said it was a fuel pump and replaced it but since I've had it back it's been really hesitant to start. Sometimes it starts fine others it's trying and trying then last second it sparks. Could it still be the fuel pump? He also ran a diagnostic on it and everything showed up as normal. Appreciate any help!

I have (4) Like-New 18" Lexus OEM 74253 factory alloy-wheels, along with (4) Top-Rated & Barely-Used Michelin 235/60R18 Latitude X-Ice Xi2 Snow Tires.
And YES, having grown up in Buffalo, NY, along with our living in the snow-belt of NE Ohio for10+ years now, these snow tires are simply incredible, completely transforming the vehicle into a Fun-To-Drive (in the snow) attacking machine. So if you enjoy driving in the snow like I do, you'll actually look forward to snow........
Additionally, these tires ride & handle very well, while also being very quiet, & super long lasting, based upon my previous experience with another set of them on a Honda Odyssey. And yes, I got 8+ years out of that set.
And seeing how you need tires anyway, having a dedicated set of snow-tires has always made perfect sense to me, along with your greatly enhanced Safety & Peace of Mind.
Reason for selling: Shortly after we purchased this very expensive set of tires & wheels (which retail for > $3,000), we purchased a winter home in extreme southern Texas. And seeing how we plan to sell our home here, we no longer have a need for them.
If interested, please call Dan @ 440-254-6504.
And if you'd like to see some photo's, this item is posted on Craigslist, or I can email them to you.
Hello, I have a 1994 lexus es300, and it has been very good to me. However, it probably needs a new transmission (doesnt go into 1st gear for some reason, still drives, just takes 15 seconds or so to get to 20 mph. ) Engine works fine.
Today, while browsing craigslist, I found a 1999 toyota camry for $500 with blown motor.
Is the camry transmission swappable with the es300 transmission? If not, would the engine be swappable? What transmissions are swappable, I heard I can swap ones from 1992 through 1996, is that right?
Also, one mechanic swears its an electrical issue, the transmission solenoids have been replaces, the ecm tested fine, and the transmission wiring from the ecm to the harness tested fine, and they believe the transmission wiring harness might be to blame. Where is the transmission wiring harness located? (I stopped going to the mechanic because I paid $800 for the solenoid to be replaced, only for the issue to not be resolved, and refund was refused, so now I dont trust mechanics.
tl, dr; is transmission/motor for 94 es300 and 99 camry swappable? And where is the transmission wiring harness located on the es300?
