  1. Last year’s reimagined front-engine rear-wheel-drive IS struck the perfect balance of sportiness and sophistication, making it the best IS to date. However, Chief Engineer Naoki Kobayashi and his team at Lexus International have been working on something truly special exclusively for the North American market
  2. It looks like a seal is faulty. I would remove the fuel rail and replace the seals as this could turn serious in a short space of time.
  3. Usually a dead battery can be at the end of its life, noticeable if it doesn't recover but itself after discharging. Fitting a new battery is very noticeable improvement. Bit of advise PattyPan .... get the best quality battery you can for your money, you can usually tell by the weight difference...cheap one is a lot lighter than a quality one!

However, Chief Engineer Naoki Kobayashi and his team at Lexus International have been working on something truly special exclusively for the North American market Enter the first-ever Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance, which dials up the sports sedan formula to eleven with the addition of a powerful 472-horsepower naturally aspirated V8 engine and ferocious quad exhaust system. It expands the IS family and ushers in a new era of F SPORT Perform
  5. Hi Jon.....welcome to the Club It appears that you may have damaged the lower suspension track arm which will need replacing as a matter or urgency and realigning the suspension afterwards. I would either replace any suspension arms that you can find in that wheel area or take to a garage for them to diagnose what needs renewing. Let us know how you get on with it
  6. Toyo makes Nitto tires and they use the same rubber to make Toyo tires.
  7. Hi Jerry.....welcome to the Club I wonder if when the alternator was replaced that they removed a Suppressor from the old unit and it never got fitted to the new one. A Suppressor works by cutting out any interference from the alternator and it could well be that the audio system cuts out when it encounters excessive white noise coming through? Alternatively, it could be the Radio Frequency Lock is switched off (the one which auto-tunes the frequency as it changes when you drive out of range, etc)
  8. Hi Kevin.....welcome to the Club I would say that is just surface corrosion and it hasn't taken hold to much. However, I would factor into the price the cost of having the underside completely Waxoyl treated which will neutralize the corrosion and also protect it for the future. The Waxoyl should also be injected into the chassis rails and legs and also into the body panels as well Let us know how it all goes
  9. Hi Cheryl.....welcome to the Club These are the economy figures below and yours is definitely running low on mpg figures. I would recommend servicing the engine to ensure that everything is running efficiently....engine oil and filter, speak plugs, check leads/coils, fuel and air filter. If these components have been replaced recently or you can replace them shortly then this may bring the mpg back to where it should be. Also, check you tire pressures are correct as this will drag the economy down 2007 Lexus RX 400h 4WD Personalize Find a ca
  10. Is there anything jamming the mechanism....examine underneath to see there is nothing dropped in there. Also if the motor clicks every time you operate the switch then chances are it is jammed by something in the mechanism
  11. It may be that if the car was subjected to a cold spell and the fluid froze then this could lead to a fuse blowing to protect the pump when operated. Worth checking the fuse first and then proceeding from there
  12. The mic can be routed around the headlining and windscreen area inside the car to end up somewhere relatively close to the drivers head. As it is being tucked behind trim parts it cannot be seen and looks neat. Not sure about a USB port though
  13. It sounds like it needs to take an average over a time period and will eventually settle down and display the correct information once it has taken driving styles and conditions into account
  14. Hi.....welcome to the forum. As far as preventative maintenance goes, I would replace anything that looks under par, such as filters that look old, belts that are perishing, same with tyres. All of these can be done over time and lead to a better and more economical and reliable drive.
  15. It is located in the engine compartment (on the left-side), under the covers.
  16. I would try selling it as I'm sure someone would want it at a good price
  17. I wouldn't say that wire relates to the alternator charging but it is definitely worth crimping it back in and see what happens. if the belt is squealing then this would more than likely be the reason for low alternator output as its not efficiently driving the pulley. jumping idle speed is not related to the alternator I wouldn't think. So, tighten or replace the drivebelt and reconnect the loose wiring.
  18. Here's some info on the GS300 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexus_GS#2000–2004
  19. Hi MIke.......welcome to the Club Two options really....find a bulb that is compatible or splice the new bulb holder into the existing wiring loom. Probably best to find a replacement bulb in the long run Let us know how you get on with it
  20. The 2nd love of my life! 2000 BMW Z3 2.0 liter Roadster
  21. So what else do you drive apart from your Lexus? Tell or show us your Sports Car, Motorcycle, Truck
