2007 ES350 with 180K........while accelerating have motor vibration. Also if at speed, any speed, any increase on the pedal and get vibration. Seems to be getting worse since first noticed a number of months ago. Recent tire rotation and balance, alienment, new struts all around. Mechanic says could be motor mount(s). How to verify which mount, or should all be replaced? Does engine have to be pulled? Any idea the cost? And last, if it is a motor mount, what's worse case if I do nothing?
Bought a 2007 ES350, in great condition, but it stutters occasionally. That is, when I depress the accelerator, it doesn't respond or it hesitates before responding. Not sure how to address this issue. It's not severe, but don't want a dealer trip if it is something simple. Actually not sure it's acceleration or transmission. Bother!
From one day to the next my cruise control system does not work. When I engage it by pressing the button following message is displayed "Check Cruise System"
It does not respond to pressing forward (to disengage the radar control and just go to regular - which I mostly use) or any variant thereof. so I am thinking that it could be a fuse. But my owners manual does not show what fuse it involved and where it is located, so maybe someone here know which would save me from checking every single fuse in the car.
If you have any other solution....................please do say so. Lexus dealer is good, but they are waaaaaay overpriced (I was quoted 1050+ tax for a replacement of auto levelling sensor - did it myself for 305 in 15 minutes)
Thank you very much
My mom is drives a 2013 LS460. She's a young 79 and pretty healthy. The other day she was pulling out of a parallel parking spot and rear-ended the car in front of her. There was a fair amount of damage indicating a pretty decent impact.
She is not 100% sure what happened as she was pretty shaken (mentally) by the incident. But she said something about either the car not stopping and/or surging forward. My initial thought was she had tried to step on the brake and hit the wrong pedal, but she SWEARS that was not the case.
I've done some research online and seen that there have been issues with this brand and hesitation on acceleration, etc. I'm curious if this incident may be tied to that or any other known lexus issues.
Any and all input on this will be appreciated.
I noticed when driving my 99 ES300 this morning there was some slight
sluggishness and hesitation when accelerating from idle. It didn't feel
like a smooth acceleration. The car has 128K on it and I did the trans.
fluid flush like 20K miles ago. One thing *I think* is occurring also is
the car is going thru gas faster than usual. Not sure if the 2 issues
are interrelated. There are no check engine lights on.
Any suggestions what the problem might be? I was going to do the following:
1. Disconnect the battery for a few minutes to reset the computer
2. Check for cracks in the connected area between air filter and MAF.
3. Clean the throttle body (any recommended cleaning products?)
Also is it safe to drop a fuel injector cleaner into the gas tank? If so which brand/product do you recommend?
Anything else that comes to mind would be appreciated.
