I drive a lexus es350 07. I filled in diesel by mistake and before I could stop i filled in about 5gal. Now the car has 5gal diesel + 4 gal petrol. I drove 1mi after that to get it to my home and planning to tow the car to my local garage and have them flush the fuel system. But that can happen only tomorrow and I am worried about letting the car sit overnight with the diesel in it. Is there a way for me too siphon off the fuel from the tank ? Has anybody done this before on a Lexus ?
The "rear light failure warning light" comes on and remains on when I pull into the garage and the bright lights "click-on" due to the darkness in the garage. I've visually checked all of the bulbs in the front and rear of my 2001 GS430 but can't seem to find any problem. Anyone have a suggestion as to the problem. Thanks.
Like a fool, I closed my keys in the trunk while on vacation. After calling a locksmith, he unlocked the car and set the alarm off, causing the doors to lock and disable the trunk switch. He removed the lower dash panels containing the switch, and jumped power to the White and black wire on the switch. He fried the wire, left, and now here I am. I used a Lexus emergency key to open the trunk and retrieve the keys. Upon placing the key in the ignition, everything was functioning but the cluster. I can see my gear selection indicator and my idiot lights, but no tach, speedo, water temp, or fuel gauge. I have checked the MPX B fuse, SRS B, Panel, and Gauge fuses, each of which appeared to be fine. I have since disconnected the battery (twenty minutes prior to the publication of this post). Please help me identify the problem, I am very concerned. Thank you.
Looking for anyone to comment or who has experience with this and would like to make any suggestions.
Approximately, 350 miles from home, the steel fuel line on my 99 LX470
rotted through and let go... The first indication was he stench of
gasoline from the drivers seat... and then the rain of fuel in front of
the rear tire when I stepped out to check.... I dumped 13 gallons in 6
minutes racing to a service station on a Sunday morning at 8:00 am. Any
one with a match or lighter could have sent a wave of flames chasing me
3 miles into town.
Has anyone had experience with this, who has successfully changed their fuel (and return) lines?
I had a "bypass" installed to get me limping home.. but now the truck sits in the driveway waiting for some much due attention.
I am stuck trying to figure out what is wrong with my car.Randomly stalled out at light while waiting to get gas.figured it was because of low gas.filled up then turned the key for the gas pump to fill up a few times then tried no luck.sat their for 10 mins trying to give it gas to start and checking different parts to see if i could figure out the problem.finally got the car started no gas needed.it would rev above 1000 rpm then it would die as if it had no gas or something.started it a few times this times giving it gas hoping maybe it wasn't getting enough gas.no luck it would start up if i didnt gas it during start up.then after starting i would try and rev it high but the car would die out like it wasn't receiving gas or occasionally if i accelerated at low rates it would actually rev up to about 3 or 4 before doing the same thing and dying out. Im lost and low on cash from replacing so many parts.Please help me out Lexusownersclub fam!!!!
