  2. Easy fix , turn the schwoogle toggle off to the right then battery disconnect then get up on the roof and close it by force with your hands then the schoogle should noogle the poogle and you should have functioning sunroof again
  3. Some of the cars I've driven within the past few years: Of course, all but one are Turo rentals.🙂

  5. Yesterday
  6. Thanks! firming up the car is fine but I don't want a firm ride. Do these adjust down to a nice smooth ride? Not a pillow but not a brick.
  7. One of the best mods you can make. Get some that are adjustable. I had the Megan Racing EZIIs installed. Ride height is slightly lower. The firmed up the car. After 4 wheel alignment the car tracks like it is supposed to .
  8. Ford F-350 one ton diesel. Same truck since new in 2002. It does everything well. Record mpg is 23.8.
  9. Hello, I have an 1998 Lexus ES 300, my problem is that on a sunny or hot day, my doors do not unlock, is there a temperature sensor on the door locks? Any other time, the doors work fine. Thank you in advance,bob
  10. Have a 2013 RX350 that came with the factory tow package. I understand these are rated for a Max of 3500lbs tow capacity. This is probably a stupid question but wanted to know what it would take to get it to safely tow 6500 to 7000lbs (boat weights 5300 but adding trailer, fuel etc)? Upgraded brakes? I think the engine can handle it not sure if transmission can. Just curious if something like this could be done? If it costs $5-10k in upgrades no biggie sure beats buying another tow vehicle.. Anyone ever hear of such a thing?
  11. Last week
  12. Thank you for your reply. I've read in other posts that it is o.k. to drive in 4WD High all the time. My mechanic says what you are saying, not a good idea. Bill
  13. Hi Bill....welcome to the Club I have always been of the belief that it is not advisable to drive in 4WD High or Low on hard road surfaces, as this can lead to transmission wind-up which can damage internal components. You will notice a clunking on cornering at slow speeds which is the transmission (differentials) fighting to corner at different speeds. If you have freewheeling hubs disconnecting the drive to the front wheels then this helps but not good to use on the freeway, best for off-road driving really. Saying that, it is necessary to drive on soft ground in 4WD every so o
  14. It's not obvious to see from the photos and it will take a trained mechanic to examine each component to see if there is any deformation from original specs. With that sort of damage it will need looking at as soon as possible to avoid any further damage occurring or causing an accident.
  15. I have done that. I usually use the Auto function - much easier in my mind. When the temperature was below 0 is when the issue happens the most. I drove today and it heated but not like it uses to. I am making an appointment with my local mechanic for a full service on it. Are there specific things I should ask them to look at? Something a bit specific would be better for a female to ask a mechanic. I get the brush off a bit with cars and women around here.
  16. Ok just to make sure can you tell me if it looks that way with these newer pictures this is the front end with the wheel off. It’s seems my Roger has shifted in on the front side.
  17. Any input in leaving the 4 wheel drive in high all the time for local and freeway driving?
  18. Last year’s reimagined front-engine rear-wheel-drive IS struck the perfect balance of sportiness and sophistication, making it the best IS to date. However, Chief Engineer Naoki Kobayashi and his team at Lexus International have been working on something truly special exclusively for the North American market
  19. Michaelwigon well it could be a close shave in the event of a near miss 🙂
  20. This does make you wonder how many fake parts enter the automotive aftermarket. Although this is not a new problem and I personally was involved in resolving an issue with fake GM parts being sold as authentic parts way back in the early 1990's. But it does make you aware of what can happen in the event of a part failing and causing damage to the car or occupants 😞
  21. My demountable campervan for short vacations and trips to racetracks
  22. My Lexus is my weekend car. My daily is my 2009 Mazda 3i.
  23. It looks like a seal is faulty. I would remove the fuel rail and replace the seals as this could turn serious in a short space of time.
  24. Usually a dead battery can be at the end of its life, noticeable if it doesn't recover but itself after discharging. Fitting a new battery is very noticeable improvement. Bit of advise PattyPan .... get the best quality battery you can for your money, you can usually tell by the weight difference...cheap one is a lot lighter than a quality one!
  25. Last year’s reimagined front-engine rear-wheel-drive IS struck the perfect balance of sportiness and sophistication, making it the best IS to date. However, Chief Engineer Naoki Kobayashi and his team at Lexus International have been working on something truly special exclusively for the North American market Enter the first-ever Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance, which dials up the sports sedan formula to eleven with the addition of a powerful 472-horsepower naturally aspirated V8 engine and ferocious quad exhaust system. It expands the IS family and ushers in a new era of F SPORT Perform
  26. Advice from 11 years ago is exactly what I needed. I am having the same problem with my Lexus RX 300. A battery is all I need? I can do that!
