Aaahh ...

Missing an E fan.....

Could be that the missing fan completes a circuit.

I have the shop manual for the 1990, official $300 manual, and the diagnostic for the Idle valve is VERY interesting.  On this 1990, you apply positive voltage to the center two terminals of the valve itself (after disconnecting the plug), then apply positive voltage to the remaining plugs (S4, S3, S2, S1) in that 4 to 1 sequence.

Imagine the number of jumpers you need.  Positive voltage to S4, keeping it positive, adding a positive jumper to S3, etc.  At the end of this sequence, the valve will open.

Then, pull the S1 to S4 jumpers.  Then add positive voltage to S1, add to S2, add to S3, add to S4.  Reversing basically.  Then the valve will shut.

4 idle positions.  Once S1 is okay it would open a calibrated amount, then continue to S2, etc for an additional amount, etc, up to S4.

Quite clever indeed.  Some complex little circuitry.

Either the idle air valve is bad, or the missing fan is a culprit.

Just a guess, but imagine the 98 follows the basic logic of the 90.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Generally, this sort of info isn't going to had just from vin#. The build sheet is where this would likely be found. Not sure how easy it would be to get on a 7+ yr. old car. Good luck.

FS: 2007 ES350 Ultra-Luxury Package • Alan Funk • Brooklyn NY

Alan Funk one of the original moderators of this forum is in poor heath. He loved solving problems & helping and talking all things about cars especially his 3 Lexuses ! He has a 2007 ES350 w/Ultra-Luxury Package. w/25,000 miles. Amber Pearl w/Cashmere interior. Its only been serviced by Lexus , parked in a private spot and babied…orginal owner of course!  I’m wondering if anyone has interest? I haven’t listed this anywhere else as I felt it would be respectful to him for me to present it to the Lexus Owner Club members first. 
Please contact me directly at casaandy@mac.com if interested

I had heard that run flat tires do not handle road imperfections as well as regular tires.  I have a new 2022 UX 250H and I can attest that what I heard is correct.

Has anyone changed to normal tires for a smoother ride?

Beyond Luxury: Lexus' performance cred continues to evolve with F-SPORT brand
A pyramid of champagne glasses on the hood of a Lexus LS 400, unperturbed by its revved up silky-smooth V8 engine

For many, that’s still the image — from the iconic commercial that heralded the launch of the luxury automotive brand in 1989 — that comes to mind when they envision Lexus. Because, truth be told, those luxury traits still hold true — even more so today than they did 32 years ago.

But it’s also true that, today, there’s more to the Lexus story than just raising the bar on luxury.

See a glimpse of the future in the Lexus BEV Sport
Lexus has released a gallery of new pictures and animations of its possible next-generation BEV Sport, Sedan and SUV concepts. The models were first revealed on December 14, 2021, in the corporate battery electric vehicle (BEV) announcement made by Akio Toyoda, Toyota Motor Corporation President and Lexus Brand Holder.

The new Sedan, Sport and SUV concepts are proposed to be part of a full line-up of BEVs Lexus recently unveiled under the collective vision known as “Lexus Electrified.”

With the bold proportions and low ride height required for a high-performance sports car, the Lexus BEV Sport concept symbolizes the future of the luxury brand while also reviving the spirit of the iconic Lexus LFA. Acceleration from 0-60 mph could be in the low two-second range and the cruising distance could exceed 430 miles, thanks to the possible use of solid-state batteries.
