  1. Chip, Hutch hasn't been active on this forum for 5 years. You'd be better off starting a new topic with information of what your problem(s) are.
  2. Parts cars can usually be found on craigslist.
  3. The toot is for first gen which the OP has so hopefully it applies. @toothguy, a dentist by chance? Anyways, there is another toot for the primary O2 sensor on the lexls site. Maybe you've seen it.

    He he. I just stepped in for one dance. Back to you...
  5. Removing the gas pedal isn't mentioned in this tutorial: http://www.lexls.com/tutorials/EFI/suboxygensensor.html

    [not landar] These "how tos" may not address your issues specifically, but worth checking out: http://www.lextreme.com/tech_maintenance.html http://www.lexls.com/tutorials/ [/not landar]
  7. If you do a "lost lug nut key" search on the 'net and possibly here, you'll find some good info on getting it off should you not be able to find a key that fits. Discount Tire was a oft mentioned place in one thread I found.
  8. Being in Arizona, I can't help you at all with your weather related question but I can say that my 95 is vastly more refined than my 90 was. This LEXLS generations page may help you decide: http://www.lexls.com/info/lsgenerations.html
  9. So it's not shifting gears but your mechanic couldn't find anything wrong? It sounds like it's in too high of a gear, not down shifting. The ECT switch in power position makes the transmission stay in gear longer (higher engine revs) before shifting.
  10. Where is the beeping coming from? Inside the cabin, under/behind the dash, speakers, outside/under the hood? Knowing where the beeping is coming from may help locate the source.
  11. Yep, check the cabin air filter. It's behind the glove box. Open the glove box and remove the panel in the back to get the filter cover. I know I should buy a new one (they can be had for cheap on eBay), but as a temporary measure, I just flushed mine out with water in the opposite direction of the air flow. I let it dry for many hours before reinstalling it. It wasn't quite 100% dry but since there's not much humidity here in the desert, I wasn't worried about mold forming and knew it would be completly dry within a day or two.
  12. If you hear a click and nothing more when trying to tilt the wheel, it could be an electical issue. However, put your ear down close to where the adjuster knob is, if you hear the tilt motor running, the link in this thread could help: http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=73170
  13. @lswolfe77, if you think it's the master switch, one is available here: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls460-430-400-classifieds/613548-fs-parting-out-1997-ls400-gray-interior-parts-and-more.html @M Xakir Kayani, since your issue is not related to this thread, you'll get better help is you start a new topic. However, if you washed your engine, you'll need to give it time to dry out. Did you cover the main electrical box with plastic? If not, open the cover to help it dry out. Gotta be patient.
  14. Bingo! That's exactly were it was leaking on my 90. It's tough to tell unless you get under there, as you did. Congrats on finding it.
  15. How do the coolant tank cap gaskets look? You may want to replace the cap while your at it. Also consider replacing the drain plug. It could be brittle and break when you drain some coolant before removing the thermostat. You do want to drain some otherwise you'll get quite a bit coming out, all over your serpantine belt. That means you'll need coolant too. Just did this on my 95 this past Monday.
