Little or no power while in drive


Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 lexus es300 at 136000miles in park or neutral I can rev the car up just fine but when I put it into gear the rpm barely creeps along even with my food to the floor, it gets a little bit better after the car is warmed up but not by much It still takes a minute for it to wind up enough rpm to start accelerating, I know it needs a couple knock sensors. I'm running some Chevron Techron Fuel System Cleaner through it now. any advice could it be the evap canister or pcv?

First welcome aboard, do you have any codes or check engine light?  If so the knock sensors will cause the engine to run in limp mode.  They have to be repaired.  Tech cleaner will not fix your problem.

      i have a 98 ls400 with about 244,000 miles on it. I’m having this very odd issue with the car. When I come to a stop light/ sign, the battery light comes on, rpms drop straight to 0 and the engine dies. Air and radio some times stay on. If I put it in park and restart the car the light goes away then its fine to drive until.. ya guest it I come to another stop. It does the exact same thing over an over at each complete stop. I assumed it was the alternator and I replaced it yesterday. No battery light, or weird idols happened for about a day. it is back to doing the battery light thing. If anyone has any Ideas of what it could be, or how to fix this issue id really appreciate it. ALSO not sure how old my battery is, changed the negative battery terminal when I did the alternator. Positive could be the problem (Corrosion on positive terminal) or maybe the terminal cable(s)?? Im very new to working on cars and any information is appreciated and retained.

      Can someone please help me! I got my ignition coil changed on my 2004 gs300 on saturday because my car was having misfires. After changing the ignition coils I tried to crank the car but it wouldn't start, we disconnected everything new and put all the old ones back on and still nothing, then I realized the alarm indicator is blinking even when the key I in the ignition and turned. I tried a locksmith and he assured me nothing is wrong with the key, PLEASE HELP ME. I've changed the fuel pump, spark plugs and also tried everything I read online about resetting the alarm and nothing works, I can activate and deactivate the alarm from my key pad but the light continues to blink and the car refuses to start

      Need help locating PCV valve on my 2003 ES300. Photos will be helpful since I want to install a new PCV valve on the car. Any suggestions on parts and removal/install will be appreciated.

      I have a 1994 Ls400 with an odd suspension squeak. The squeak only happens when braking. Definitely not a brake squeak. The squeak sounds more like a chatter and gets louder depending on how fast I'm braking. But this squeak does not happen when in reverse. I've replaced the UCA on the driver's side because the ball joint boot was torn. Both front struts are brand new, and just today I took the sway bar bushings off and greased them. Sway bar endlinks don't have play, and the rest of the ball joints don't have play. Still the same noise. Any suggestions on what it could be?
