  1. Update: I think I have got it after all the work, time, and money spent. I started checking again I found an unbelievable vacuum leak around lower intake manifold. replace gasket today runs great thanks for all of the support. something that simple fix. when the engine was swap the starter was replaced. The gasket moved or something apparently cause a vacuum leak. I had no idea a vacuum leak could cause random misfires. I was sure it was an ignition problem.

  6. Very true. I wonder if your dealership has had any similar complaints? Sometimes an auto upholstery shop can add padding. We have a couple of those shops in this area.

  7. Seats are designed for the "majority" of people. Unfortunately, not everyone will be comfortable in every seat. When I rented a $230,000 McLaren 570S Spider, it took only 20 minutes on the highway for the driver's seat to cause a very aggravating lower back pain. I guess I didn't fit the design very well.

  8. I cannot for the life of me understand why the lump would be in the middle when it would seem if there are any lumps they should be on the sides to prevent butt groove. Perhaps there is a padding that is meant to spread the load evenly like a pillow top mattress does, but like many pillow top mattresses some areas seem to sag and end up causing discomfort for some. Best of luck ladies. Sheesh.

  9. The last time WeSki was on the site was 2017. It's doubtful that you'll get a response. I can't help you with testing, I might be able to help you with the part number. 1993 shows two different EGR valves for 1993 - 25620-50010 - 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993 25620-50020 - 1993, 1994 Both EGR valves are no longer available from the dealer. However, because it appears that 1993 was a change-over year for the EGR (1993 used wither one or the other), the best way to go is to either: 1) Go to the dealer with your VIN and they can tell you which valve is correct. 2) Go to a Lexus dealership's web site (ex: https://parts.lexusofroseville.com/) and search yourself. Once you have the Toyota/Lexus part number, you can search the aftermarket for a valve: https://www.partsvoice.com/ https://www.rearcounter.com/ https://www.rockauto.com/en/partsearch/ Last resort: https://www.ebay.com/ Desperate last resort: https://www.amazon.com/ Good luck.

  10. Such a situation happens because one or more speaker terminals are surely grounded to the metallic door. Has any work been done to the dash or a door?

  12. A long time ago my company issued me a Chevy S10 that had 6,000 miles on it. It used 2-3 quarts in a 3 hour journey when driving on the interstate due to rings not seating properly. I needed that truck to get to and from my home each weekend. I bought the cheapest 10w50 high mileage oil Wal Mart sold at the time by the case. After a few weeks it used less and less oil. I did not change the oil or filter for 50,000 miles. At around 45,000 it had stopped using any oil. At 125,000 miles it ran like new and did not burn a drop of oil. I would never reccomend anybody ever do that but my point is the Toyota made engine is probably fine. But if you choose to buy it use a synthetic blend of high mileage oil, not pure synthetic. The high mileage oil has additives that help prevent worn out piston rings and valve seals from leaking. Me, personally I'd pass on that one. Bottom line here; if homey didn't even change the engine oil, he probably didn't maintain brakes, change coolant, and certainly not the timing belt. Last thing you want is a great looking car all broken down in your driveway. To add: the reason oil manufacturers reccomend mileage or time intervals is not to sell more oil. The interval is reccomended due to condensation building up in the crank case from heating and cooling. If dude drove it 5 days a week that would mean a heating and cooling engine at least twice each day. Many do not realize this but you can check the oil filler cap for a milky substance. If that is present the crank case has had water in it for a while. Smell the dipstick for gasoline smell to determine if that has damaged piston rings and intake valves. Done.

  14. Most polishing kits include a liquid/gel that can be the equivalent of 10,000 grit. This is what really recreates a glossy polish. Novus makes some excellent polishing liquid if you would prefer to buy wet-sanding paper separately instead of a complete kit. See: NOVUS Plastic Polish (novuspolish.com)

  15. I worked on my 1992 Lexus ES300 yesterday after reading this post. I investigated the possible spark issue first since it seemed the easiest to verify and I got lucky. I did a round robin with the spark plug wires and disconnected each one at a time until I reached one that upon removing it did not change the idle status. Good spark coming from the distributor but wasn't firing at the head. I pulled the boot and found what had to be a manufacturing defect with the hard plastic insulator. The spark was firing prematurely through a pin hole or crack to the port tube. Of course this means that the spark never reached the combustion chamber which resulted in a dead cylinder. This happened approximately one month after a tune up. The effect was exactly as described in previous post. Shaking at idle and slowly going away as RPM's increase. Loss of power but drivable. However I did not have a check engine light. Perhaps my bulb is also blown. Hope this helps

  17. Stop the vehicle and turn off the engine Tire pressure reset process cannot be done while the vehicle is moving. Adjust the cold tire pressure in all four tires recommended on the tire placard The tire placard located on the door panel Turn the ignition key to the “ON” position without starting the engine If your vehicle has an ignition button, press the POWER button twice without touching the brake pedal Look for the TPMS reset button and press the button until the tire pressure indicator Blinks slowly three times. (It may be under the dash near the gas or brake pedal.) Wait for several minutes with the engine switch in the “ON” position, to allow the system to record each tire’s pressure, then turn the engine off. Done!

  18. Hi Dawn, I have Nexen n'fera tires on mine and like them pretty well, given the good price for them. My next set will probably be Hankooks as they are on my Trailblazer and should get a little better mileage. The Nexens will get around 35 to 40k miles. Good luck!!

  19. We have just purchased a 2017 NX 300 T FWD and we’re hoping we could tow on a swivel type car dolly but are getting mixed advice as well. Did you ever try towing your SUV and if so what was your outcome and process for doing so. (How do you disable electronic/automatic emergency brake for example) Your input is most appreciated as we are baffled!

  20. We've had good luck with Continental Pure Contact tires. Consumer Reports rates those in #2 spot. #1 is held by Michelin's CrossClimate tires. My guess is that the Continentals are less expensive.

  22. Do you have a service manual? Maybe the attachment will help. It's from my '98 LS400 Toyota manual but it applies to your model year as well. Route the belt: Crankshaft Left bank cam Right bank cam Remember, any slack in the belt should be on the tensioner side of the belt run. EM-22 Timing Belt - Installation.pdf

  23. The other day I was in Harbor Freight and saw they have sheets of 1000 and 1200 grit sand paper. Now with a 3m kit the 1000 grit disk is good for about 2-3 headlights. If you have 4 of those sheets of 1000 grit you could ensure your 3000 grit disk can be effective on all 4 lenses. They are with the sanding tools there. I wanna say 4 sheets was $7.99 but not sure. I was in there for a watch back press.

  25. I have used metal wheel polish, and it works fine if the lights are not too bad. The 3M Headlight Restore for me worked the best so far.

  26. If it still drives take it to a shop and pay the $125 diagnose fee. That'll save you a ton of aggrevation and quite possibly money too. I've swapped motors and rebuilt cars stem to stern but when I can't figure something out mine goes to a place who can. It could be as simple as a vacuum leak, valves out of adjustment or something the monitor can find. They have machines now that can tell you all kinds of things you'd never find at home. My mechanic was working on a van that kept running hot and the machine discovered the engine was low on motor oil.

  27. New lenses will always look better than a polishing job. However, you may want to research what is required to replace yours. Some swap efforts are not very easy. I used a Meguiar's headlight lens polishing kit. To me it had the right "ingredients".

  28. Some have mentioned there could be a gel filled pad in the seat cushion but I can't confirm this. If there is in fact a gel pad then it is very possible the shape of your rear is what is causing this uncomfortable egg you feel. I once bought a seat pad from Temperpedic for my office chair. It felt great when I sat on it but after just a few minutes the foam would press down and redistribute into the middle between both of my cheek bones and cause a lump in between. When I got up I could see a well defined lump in the middle, causing what I call a "Wedgie" and 2 indents where my rear end bones pressed the foam flat pushing it toward the middle. I absolutely hated that cushion and gave it away. We are now close to 2,000 miles on our RX350 and have not noticed any such problem as you describe so far but only my wife has taken a long 400 mile drive to visit family with no comfort complaints. Toward the end of this month I will be driving 10 hours straight and will have a better assessment when I get home.

  30. I lifted my RX330 with Northwoods Performance 1.5 inch spacers and that worked very well. The nice thing about these spacers is that they are bolt on and don't require disassembly of the strut, also the camber is built in. You will need shorter front anti sway bar links.
