2007 Lexus IS350 hesitant to start

Recommended Posts

Hey team, 

I brought a 2007 Lexus is350 5 months ago and about 3 weeks ago it started making a really strange noise when I started it, then it would go away. A week ago I went to turn it on and it didn't start. It was trying but wouldn't spark. Took it to a mechanic who said it was a fuel pump and replaced it but since I've had it back it's been really hesitant to start. Sometimes it starts fine others it's trying and trying then last second it sparks. Could it still be the fuel pump? He also ran a diagnostic on it and everything showed up as normal. Appreciate any help!

      So I recently went out of town and let my cousin drive my car for about 5 days, however when she returned the car to me I noticed the USBs under the arm rest aren't working anymore. I used to always play music via USB (and bluetooth sometimes) and charge at the same time. I've found an alternative to this which was utilizing the cigarette lighter port and buying a USB cigarette lighter device. Im thinking its fuses that went bad or got fried but if anyone knows a fix to the USBs not working that'll help me! Thanks!

      The Lexus RC F GT3 secured a sensational first victory in the Blancpain GT Series at the Paul Ricard circuit in the South of France on Saturday. Emil Frey Lexus Racing’s Alberto Costa Balboa took the lead just half a lap from the chequered flag in the six-hour Endurance Cup race to claim a memorable result for the team and for Lexus
      The result sets the seal on a steady transformation of the team’s fortunes in the RC F GT3’s first full season of European GT competition and delivers on the promise the car showed in scoring points and podium results in the previous rounds of the series at Brands Hatch and Silverstone.
      Lorenz Frey, Team Principal, said: “We still can’t believe it. The last lap was nerve-racking, nobody would have thought that after six hours it would be so close. We have now definitely proven that we have a very strong package and can demonstrate the performance of the Lexus and the expert work of our team.”
      The race was rare in offering so much close action throughout its 1,000km distance. In a field of 51 starters, just one second covered the qualifying times of the top 24 cars. At the start, Christian Klien in the No14 Lexus moved from fourth on the grid to second by the first corner, while team-mate Stéphane Ortelli in the sister No114 car also put in a strong first stint, racing from eighth to third within just a few laps.

      At nightfall, both Lexus RC F GT3 looked on course for a podium finish. Norbert Siedler in the No114 had a strong fight with the No7 Bentley, but light contact meant he couldn’t progress beyond fourth before handing over to Ortelli. He too suffered contact with another car, which required an unscheduled pit stop to repair damage to the steering. This effectively ruled the Lexus out of contention, but the team were able to use the remaining hours to test and prepare the car for the highlight of the season, the 24-hours of Spa.
      Meanwhile, Marco Seefried was running in a good fourth spot in the No14 car when he handed the wheel to Costa Balboa for the last hour of the race. Once the leading No72 Ferrari suffered an engine failure and the second-placed McLaren received a drive-through penalty, the Lexus found itself running in second place. Costa Balboa was just 0.8 seconds behind the leading Bentley with eight minutes to go. On the final lap, he seized the initiative with a great overtaking move through turn 10, securing an incredible first victory for Lexus in the Blancpain GT Series.
      Emil Frey Racing now leads the Endurance Cup team’s championship standings. The next outing for the team will be a two-race Sprint Cup meeting at Misano, in Italy, from 22 to 24 June.

      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.

      New to this Lexus ES 350 Club: I always said I'd own a Lexus by the time I turned 60 (just as my Dad said he would own a Lincoln by the time he turned 60 - and he did). 2 weeks ago (and 5 months before my 60th bd), I did it. I now own a Deep Sea Blue Mica 2015 ES 350 with 44k miles in excellent shape. Prior to this, I drove a Toyota Avalon Limited, and I thought the ride could not be any more quiet or more smooth. I was wrong. The Lexus is far and away more solid, quiet, comfortable and smooth. I made a great choice for under $24k.
