  1. Dear Trevor, thanks for the info. I have been able to get info on TireJect, but not on Slime. Slime is about half the price of TireJect. JC
  2. Dear Fellow Lexus Owners, having had frequent and continuous leaking from the rims of my alloy wheels, I am interested if anyone has used Tireject or Slime to repair the leaks. JC
  3. I just found the following on the Cadillac forum. https://www.cadillacforums.com/threads/tireject-automotive-tire-sealant.1077480/
  4. Thanks, RX400h. I have spoken to my tire repair guy about it. He said that it may affect the balance of the tire, but agreed to help me test the theory. As I have said, TireJect looks good. But I would like to talk with some people who have actually used it.
  5. Dear Mama K, did you use the Slime and did it work? JC
  6. Thanks for your response, RX400H. Actually there is at least one tire sealant product especially for this problem: TireJect. I have researched it, and it looks good. But I would like to talk with some people who have tried automotive tire sealant products. Jim
  7. Dear Fellow Lexus Owners, I have 2 ES300s, a 98 and an 01. Both are losing air from the tires incessantly. I think the problem is corrosion of the alloy rims. Has anyone else had this problem? One solution is to replace the rims, very expensive. Another solution is to break down all 4 tires, clean the rims, and remount the tires, which is kind of expensive. and will recur. Has anyone injected tire sealant through the tire valve to fix this? You have to drive the car right after, so that the sealant spreads to any leaks in the tire. JC
  8. Dear KCPth and Gold Country, I am having the same trouble with my 98 and 01 Lexus ES300s. I think the problem is corrosion of the rims, causing a small leak where the rubber meets the rim.

  9. I took the car to an auto electric shop. They said I need to replace the Blower Motor Control Module. The item is pricey, around $300.

  11. Dear Dennis, I am having a similar problem on my 2001 Lexus ES300. "...Intermittent failure of my Air Conditioning blower, 2001 ES300. I had the blower motor replaced 2 years ago, so I know the blower itself is good. The air conditioning itself is working, as I am getting cold air while driving, even if the blower is not working. The blower goes on and runs for 30 seconds, then shuts off. .." What was the result? Were you able to get the problem fixed? Jim
  12. Lexus Owners 080621 Intermittent failure A C blower Dear Fellow Lexus owners, I am experiencing an Intermittent failure of my Air Conditioning blower, 2001 ES300.

The blower goes on and runs for 30 seconds, then shuts off. Has anyone had this problem? JC
  13. Apparently, no other ES 300 owner has owned both the 98 and 2001 Lexus ES300?
  14. Dear fellow Lexus owners, Disconnecting the Positive Battery Cable on my 98 Lexus ES300 doesn't work. It had no effect. The key fob still won't lock or unlock the car. Does anyone know the best place to stand to lock the doors remotely? Does anyone have another idea? JC
