Replacing Knock Sensor? Cel & Trac Off Both Off

Recommended Posts

Vehicle: 2000 ES300

Mileage: 103,500 miles

Very recent repairs:

1. Mass Air Flow sensor replaced at the Lexus Dealer

2. 90,000 mile service + Timing Belt, Water Pump, Drive Belt + Fuel Injection Cleaning at a local Toyota Dealer

Problem still exits:

1. Still, both Check Engine Light and TRAC OFF lights are still on

2. Over Drive not working -- the gear does not switch to 4th gear/remains at 3rd -- RPM continues to go high as speed increases

3. I don't want to go back to neither the Lexus or Toyota Dealer

4. Toyota dealer mechanic last time told me that it may be the knock sensor that is causing the Check Engine and TRAC OFF lights to come on

Questions:

1. Can I go to another dealer (i.e. Honda, Volvo, etc.) to have my ES's Knock Sensor replaced?

2. How much is a reasonable price? (Toyota dealer charges $650 total)

3. Can I have your opinion, please?

1. May I know what was the OBD II troubleshooting code?

2. I hope folks from VA. can direct you to a honest independent Lexus repair shop?
