  1. A transmission shop will always want to rebuild them. Unless you have some diagnostic skills your at their mercy. At least make sure they replace the rear main seal and take them pan off to check the filter as well as the fluid in the used JDM unit.
  2. I've checked my bushings while back there and they seem to be ok. The rear doesn't do as much work as the front so I guess they last longer and by the time they need to be addressed most ppl have moved on from the car.
  3. I hear you but that light in the dash would annoy the heck out of me. Can you pass an inspection with the light on?
  4. Take your car to a better mechanic, none of those issues would lead me to believe that your car is ready for the junkyard. I suggest you get a second opinion.
  5. What codes did the mechanical get from the car? Does the starter spin went trying to start or is there complete silence? Does the horn work? The items that your mechanic replace should not prevent the car from starting but if something is amiss with the security system it would. Make sure the battery is fully charged and that all doors are locked. Then arm the system and make sure the key fob is not within 15 feet. Open the doors and try to start the car.
  6. Is your check engine light on? Your car should be throwing some error codes and that would be a good place to start. Have you checked the transmission fluid level?
  7. Welcome back, How much better do you think your 14 is over your 11?
  8. Nice car. It's not in my sig but I have a 07 460L and it ride very well. Just as good if not better than my 98 which I gave to my brother. The AC not starting immediately is a symptom of the blower motor being broke or a fault in the system,
  9. Pirelli P7 are a good alternative. There are lots of owners that swear by them.
  10. Thta' That's great, How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking? They do have OE replacements on Ebay for about $6-700.
  11. Thanks for the tip. Maybe this will help someone else in the future.
  12. i have not heard of your particular situation but you need to have your mounts inspected if you have not done so already. Have a shop put your car on a lift and your problem should be obvious.
  13. I believe the ECU controls the transmission as well. Did you use the exact replacement capacitors mentioned in the big thread on CL? Have you tried a couple of drain & fills of the transmission pan?
  14. You most likely blew the main 80 amp fusible link.
  15. It could be a lot of things but you haven't given enough info to get us started. I would start with the easy stuff first though. Check the air filter, spark plugs and rotors to begin with then make sure your fuel pressure is ok.
  16. How many miles do you have in this car? Sorry I don't believe there is any quick fix. What particular code were you getting for VVT-I? I would definitely go back and check the knock sensor wiring if the code has come back. Maybe that mouse is back chewing more stuff up.
  17. What parts? For the most part I would say no. The 98-00 models were completely redesigned.
  18. Ta Take it to another dealership. If it is in fact the actuator it should be covered under warranty. I have never heard of brake actuator issues on the RX but that does not mean it does not exist. This is mainly an issue with the LS 460 but way overblown IMO. Did the dealer check the brake pads or change them recently? The knock sound you describe can get pronounced when the factory shims are not placed back on the pads.
