  1. Be very careful since you can potentially trash the engine. It seems like the pistons are contacting the valves. I would make sure that everything is in the correct position before proceeding and I can't be sure without knowing what you did before you removed the belt. Are you using a factory service manual or one of the online tutorials?
  2. This job is not difficult theres 4 bolts to remove the seat just be careful with the connectors underneath especially if there is an airbag. Pull the carpet back to gain access to the connector. The most difficult part is getting enough leverage underneath the car to break the sensor loose.
  3. You probably won't get many replies to this question here. Look for or google shops in your area that work on Japanese vehicles and any competent tech that has access to the factory service manual or an alldata subscription should be sufficient. I will say that it's hard to find an good mechanic who is also a straight shooter.
  4. More than likely it was fixed but we will never know how since the original poster did not come back to tell us. Are you having the same issue?
  5. Your sunroof drains are most likely clogged with junk.
  6. If you are going to change the fluid and filter I would just change that filter so you don't have to pay to remove the transmission pan twice if the code is still there. Check out this thread it's a GS but uses the same tranny. Also i'm attaching some files to guide you if you want to change the solenoid.
  7. Do you have a particular question about the code? That's a camshaft position sensor code.
  8. I don't know of any specific models the read airbag codes but autozone reads the codes for free so i would try them first and see what they say. Techstream can read all the ECU codes in the car if you can manage to get it running on a laptop.
  9. With that many miles I would just change the distributor just to be sure before
  10. If it's the speed sensor that's a known issue that Lexus put a TSB out for years ago. I was able to get a new ECU for free in 2014.
  11. The motor should not have anything to do with the light.
  12. As old as these cars are you are going to have some creaks and rattles.
  13. Glad you got it sorted out. I've been busy with a heater core change the last couple of weeks.
