I just had the timing belt replaced and they went ahead and did the Bone mount since it was really warn. I'll wait and see if it happens again though. The idle is very smooth. Once warmed up, it stays at 750 RPM's, and doesn't fluctuate when the A/C is on or off. My mechanic said it could be due to the A/C turning on though. As in, I stop with the A/C off, then start with the A/C turning on and that could cause the surge. I'll have to pay more attention to my A/C and see if that's the cause of this issue.

It feels as if the engine/tran has built up some energy and when the breaks are released that energy is allowed to release as well. I can't reproduce it as it has only happened 3 times and it seems like a fluke occurrence. I've tried braking very

I bought a 97 ES300 last week and overall I think it's in pretty good condition for it's age. I initially had an issue where the seat belts didn't fully retract... but a quick search on this forum and I found that I had to clean that little mount that goes on the pillar to get rid of all the gunk stuck in it. Once I cleaned that out, the seat belts retracted like they should. Awesome 5 minute fix at no cost. However, I have another problem I'm trying to fix. My drivers side door doesn't always lock or unlock using the remote. It works most of the time, but every once and a while, it won't loc
