  1. Having owned a similar 1990 LS400 from new until 2003, I would suspect that your performance issue is in the induction system and most likely in the throttle body. The throttle body is easily damaged. This is something best left to a professional technician. Your speedometer problem is is most likely in the speedometer itself. it is extremely common for the needle to stick, occasionally operate and be inaccurate.

  2. Are the bulbs in good condition? Bulbs can deteriorate over time with the glass globes becoming brownish and inhibiting light. You could add one or more additional backup light units - perhaps attached to the bumper cover. Google "backup lights" and you should find aftermarket units. The attached photo shows rear fog lights that I installed on two vehicles. The same seller on eBay Germany has backup lights that look identical. I had to fabricate "L" brackets to install them. You would have to tap into the backup light circuit on your RX.

($70 bucks on amazon, includes the odb cable.) - this was bootleg, but it worked well. You do need a windows laptop to install it on, but they give you instr

  7. I folllowed up on several of the tips mentioned here to prepare for the smog test and what a difference that made. Thanks everyone. Last year, the car nearly failed HCs (it measured 54 and the limit was 56). This year? HCs were at 13. The other measurements were equally clean. The shop where I had this done said the car was running very very clean. It's a huge relief. Here's what I did to prepare: -12 oz bottle of Chevron Techron Fuel System Cleaner concentrate mixed with 12 gallons of premium gas (Shell)... -per SRK's instructions, put it in second and ran it on the freeway 3K to
