Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

I've had a persistent rattle, first it would only happen at low rpms then would quit when I revved up and altogether once it was running temp. Then it started only happen within the first few seconds of starting then stopping. But the rattle now has gotten to the point where it doesn't want to start or run and it sounds like if i continue to drive it it would surely break down. The sound is coming from left side of motor by the timing chain.

      Hello, I've looked thru these pages for a few years now just never joined until now. I have a 1991 LS400 which I replaced the starter on and everything seems put back together correctly except I notice that there is a ground wire located between back of engine and firewall more on the passenger side that is not connected to anything. I cannot figure out by looking where it goes, I haven't been able to find anything on Google, nothing showing me in pictures, I've looked on all the forums but no luck. I have looked at the wiring diagrams but I dunno if its just me but I can't get my answer from looking at any of those either. Here is a picture of it and where it's at among with a pic of whole car, maybe someone will like it and be kinda incentive to take time and help me out. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time in advance and I look forward to hearing from someone asap. I don't wanna start it and drive until I know where it goes. I just put a couple more pics up. The ground that I'm asking about connects to the wire that I point to in the yellow arrow in pic.  Dunno exactly where that goes but it runs under bottom of motor on passenger side of it.

      Hey there Lexus Community, I've been trying to solve a problem for my grandparents for the last couple weeks. They have a 1998 Lexus ES300 and have had an issue with the Blower for their AC and Heat. This is what it did for about a week, when you first powered on the AC from off to AUTO it would blow a very small amount of cold air for a second before shutting off and not coming back on until you press OFF then Auto again and it would do the same thing. Now for the last few days it seems to be working better but it still isn't right, sometimes it works only on high, sometimes for intervals it works normal (allowing you to switch temperature and blower speed) before eventually shutting off. Right now it seems like you can get it to work for short periods of time by pressing off then auto so that it will work for about 3 minutes then repeat. I've had problems similar to this in other cars and replacing the blower motor or the blower motor resistor seems to be the most common thing, except here it doesn't seem like the motor because it works sometimes, or the resistor because it intermittently works on varying speeds. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm usually pretty handy when it comes to fixing things but this is throwing me for a loop.

      I have replaced 3 of 4 door lock actuator motors without a problem, thanks to this forum. I have a challenge on the last one. When removing the old motor & gear, the large gear and spring came out as well. Does anyone know the correct way when reinstalling the spring and the orientation of the large gear to the rest of the assembly. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks
