Hey guys. Just purchased a 1997 LS 400 and it's seen better days. It's leaking coolant pretty badly and I need to know what all the hoses are so I can start replacing the ones that I know are bad. It's also got a Heater Control Valve that's been broken off so I'll probably have to replace that first. Basically I need a manual like a Haynes or a Chiltons but I'm a cheapskate and was hoping someone might know where to get the PDF version of the manual. If not links to the manual could anyone give me pictures of the pages I need just to show me what exactly the parts are called I need to replace. This might be a stupid question also but it's low on Automatic Transmission Fluid and I wasn't sure if I can add it by pouring it directly into the place the dipstick is held. I can't find an opening to add it besides that and I know sometimes adding transmission fluid isn't as easy as topping off your oil or coolant. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks guys.
Hello Lexus Family,
New here on the forum and could really use some help, I'm getting into this 1999 GS 300 (VVT-i) the car is in great condition and I believe is resurrect vip worthy (only 102,000 on it), but my dilemma is that drove it a couple of days ago no problems, until this morning. Now its cranking with no start. I replaced the fuel pump, checked and cleaned coil packs/spark plugs and all that has resulted in an intermittent spark issue, fuel is getting up the line to the junction/breaking point within the primary fuel line, and I need help, went to local parts store, and guess what no repair manual, I saw a post during my search for a post by member lexman96 who has the manual for the '99 GS 300, I hope that I can get the repair manual for the car, thanks in advance for everyone's help.---Jammer1
