  3. Engine Ecu Rebuilder

    The question I have is: After someone rebuilds the ECU or I have a rebuilt ECU put in, do I need to have the reprogramming done by the Lexus dealer or another professional mechanic? Thank you in advance.
  4. Anyone know the correct PN for the FCS strut. I have a 2008 RX350 FWD w/o air suspension. I'm guessing the 2333378L/R are the correct ones. I tried to install the 1333448L/R with no luck (of course this the pair that Amazon said would fit, even after some dialog with the seller). I purchased a second set from Amazon and no fit! Thanks in advance...

  11. RX400h I did change PCV valve when I changed all the other stuff, forgot to mention that. Vehicle has 190K miles. I took it to Lexus of Mobile (AL) as there are not a lot of Lexus dealers around here, others are 3 hours away I think. 2ndRX, I am in Navarre near Pensacola, Naples is a long haul for me. Thank you both for your replies.
  12. Where are you located in Florida? I know of an excellent independent Lexus mechanic in Naples.
  13. ...sorry, there are so many vehicles in our household that I sometimes forget which ones have belts and which have chains.
  14. How many miles are on the odometer? If piston rings are broken or a valve stem is bent, you either have over 300,000 miles on the odometer or there is a factory component defect. Remember that not all dealerships offer equivalent technical expertise. You might consider taking your vehicle to the largest dealership in your area. By the way, if your PCV valve is stuck. crankcase pressure may build up enough to cause issues, although I would think that it is uncommon for most vehicles with under 150,000 miles.
  15. Hello all. I have a check engine light came on. So I found out the code from Autozone and bought a Denso bank 1, sensor 2 and had it put in. Three hours later, the light came back on and found out it is the same error code plus either bad battery or ECM. Battery is new since Jan so it could be the bad ECM. The smell of the car after driving a while is the same as before, nasty smell when I step out of the car. The car is 1996 LS400 with 178800 miles. Not looking to keep the car for a long time. In fact, I have another car to use while I get this issue fix and then I will sell it. So how do you advise on getting this issue fix. I could not sell the car with the check engine light on. No one would get it without me explaining what it is and no one would believe a word I say anyway. So I would like to see how much to get this fix. I would think the ideal is to find a ECM guy locally and have him do the diagnostic. I am in Houston and is there a company called ECM-Togo in Houston. I saw a post that states there is such a company but it could be out of business. Also please advise if a junk yard ECM is the way to go. I have have the car idle for a month or two no problem. I can always drive my other car while I get this fix.

  17. Need help here, all else has failed including $150 trip to the stealer. 2009 Lexus RX350 3.5L throwing codes P0300 (multiple random misfires), P0302 (misfire on cylinder 2), P0304 (misfire on cylinder 4). Changed all spark plugs; replaced injectors on 2 and 4; replaced coils on 2, 4 and 6; changed camshaft position sensor in middle of bank 2. When the vehicle is warmed up for 20 minutes it won’t throw the light but tester is still showing codes. Oil consumption has increased slightly and there is excessive crankcase smoke when the oil cap is removed. Stealership tested engine and vacuum test indicated internal engine failure. They are telling me either broke ring or bent valve. This engine has NEVER been overheated. I find it highly unlikely that two piston rings would break in cylinders side by side, or the same for valve stems bending. Considered blown head gasket, but there is no water or coolant in the oil. When the CE light is on steady it runs fine, when it blinks it runs bad. VSC light also blinks. Sorry for the lengthy post, I’ve tried everything I could think of. Now I need somebody in the know to think for me. Advance thanks for your help! Larry
  18. Hi, Has anyone programmed the HomeLink from a 2007 IS250 Lexus with a 2018 model LiftMaster Premium series 8355W (belt driven) garage opener? or know if they're compatible? I just got the LiftMaster 8355W garage opener 5 days ago and been unable to program it with HomeLink buttons in the 2007 IS250. According to the HomeLink site, they provide instructions to program with LiftMaster for the 2007 IS150 so I assume this means it's compatible (?). Cleared all HomeLink programming and tried all the steps to program opener following instructions from Owner's Manual, HomeLink web site, various tips given online..etc. The only step that doesn't seem to match with the instructions is that when I'm trying to sync remote with the desired HomeLink button...I get the slow blinks while I'm holding both buttons but it never gets to fast blinking, just does the slow blink until the light just stops blinking. I went ahead and continued with all the remaining steps including the learn button on the opener and going back to car to press the HomeLink button. Tried all this multiple times and different ways but still no luck. Never had issues programming it previously. Wondering if anyone has successfully programming 2017 or 2018 LiftMaster with 2007 Lexus, or maybe it's no longer compatible with the latest garage openers. Any info/help would be appreciated.
  19. Aftermrarket remote start

    What liability of the engine not shutting off are you referring to? If I were to start the engine conventionally, exit the car, then open the door to re-enter, the engine does not shut off.
  20. Homelink Garage Door Opener

    Hi, Has anyone programmed the HomeLink from a 2007 IS250 Lexus with a 2018 model LiftMaster Premium series 8355W (belt driven) garage opener? or know if they're compatible? I just got the LiftMaster 8355W garage opener 5 days ago and been unable to program it with Homelink buttons in the 2007 IS250. According to the HomeLink site, they provide instructions to program with LIftMaster so I assume this means it is compatible (?). Cleared all Homelink programming and tried all the steps to program opener following instructions from Owner's Manual, HomeLink web site, various tips given online..etc. The only step that doesn't seem to match with the instructions is that when I'm trying to sync remote with the desired Homelink button...I get the slow blinks while I'm holding both buttons down but it never gets to fast blinking, just does the slow blink until the light just stops blinking. I went ahead and continued with all the remaining steps including the learn button on the opener and going back to car to press the Homelink button. Tried all this multiple times and different ways but still no luck. Wondering if anyone has successfully programming with 2007 Lexus. Any info/help would be appreciated.
  21. Engine Ecu Rebuilder

    Is ECU Togo in Houston still in operation? I am in Houston and is trying to get my ECM/ ECU repaired. Car: 1996 LS400 Mileage: 178800 Symtom: Bad bank 1 sensor 2 O2 sensor, replaced and check engine light comes on after 3 hours of driving. Same error code plus error message about bad battery or ECM. Battery is new since Jan 2018 so it could be the ECM. Any suggestions? Do I replace the ECM with a junk yard ECM or repair the current one. The problem is getting someone local to do the diagnostic on the ECM. ECU Togo in Houston would be a good match. I am willing to pay the diagnostic fee since I am already sunk in several hundred dollars so far. Thank you in advance for your help.
  22. Hi all, I am considering the purchase of a '07 LS460L with 138k miles. It looks super nice inside and out. I have owned several Lexus in the past, but all were early 90s LS400. I am not at all familiar with the LS460. Do these have timing belts that have to be changed? Any tips on trouble spots, etc., would be appreciated.
  23. Help! Need part number for coolant inlet plug (bolt)

    Hey Paul, Thanks so much for the part number. It looks more promising than the ones I been looking at online. I will for sure drop by the dealer ship to order the part. I miss driving this car lols. can't wait to get it back up and running.
  24. Just bought a sweet used 2013 ES 300h which I love however the stock stereo is underwhelming. Coming from an '09 Camry Hybrid with a JBL package (which was pretty good, great bass). This is the nicest car I have owned so far and I would like to avoid putting an actual sub and amp in the truck and dicking around with wiring etc. I would like to get alittle more bass out of the system though and hope that this can be done by upgrading the rear deck woofers. Any ideas/ past experiences etc...? Thank you!
  25. I have a 2015 nx200, 45,000 mi....getting a whine, sounds like it's coming from transmission. More prevalent when temp is warm out & after the car is driven some. Louder when accelerating some & you can hear it more when trans shifts............??? Any suggestions, dealer said they could hear it, needed more time to troubleshoot it, so I'll leave it with them next service appointment.
  26. 2006 430 SC

    Hello...today I've signed up to ask questions about a 2006 430 SC Pebble Beach Edition with 105k miles that I'm thinking of buying. The car was turned in from the original owner, now 80, when his wife said he needed more safety sensing devices in his ride. The car has been immaculately serviced by the Lexus dealer...two sales people have said it's the most loved/serviced car they have seen in 4-8 years there. I currently own a Honda and Acura, this would be a "fun car". The Honda products are exceptional...a CR-V with 194K and a TSX with 123K...bought new and serviced as required at the dealer. I'm concerned about the upcoming maintenance and whether it needs to be serviced at the dealer and whether this car could bankrupt me. Our tax consultant says it's too old, too many miles and has the potential to be a money pit. Is she right? Does this have a timing chain or timing belt (I'm not much of a mechanic).

    Nice video! It is helpful
  28. Looking for a Car Seat for pets

    Just an update guys, upon checking some seats for pets I saw this dog car seat which I think is a perfect fit for my chihuahua. I think with this dog car seat, it will be able to protect my pet from an accident while the car is moving and will also help me to eliminate distractions for me while driving. Has anyone tried a dog car seat before? Would you recommend it?
