Paul Sherman Posted November 10, 2006 Share Posted November 10, 2006 Hi all, I have a '93 LS400 with 194K on it. I started noticing an occaisional slight gas smell when I first got in the car, which disappeared as in a couple of seconds after starting it. Today, I was finally able to track it down - There's a small leak at the top of the engine; driver's side, toward the back. If I were to guess, it looks like where the fuel line goes into the injector rail. It's currently just a bit of dampness, no pooling, but it won't get better by itself. Since the nearest dealer is 45 minutes in the opposite direction from where I work (which means I can't even get there before they close), and I can't find an independant Lexus mechanic in St. Louis, this may be up to me and my regular mechanic to figure out. Has anyone seen this before? I searched the archives once, and didn't find much, but will search again with different key words. Since I'm driving across state in a week, I'd love to get 'er fixed, rather than rent a car. OTOH, I've heard others mention that Lexus dealers have provided loaners - would that happen with me? If so, it may be worth taking some time off and run it up to them. Any guidance is appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
