  1. Hey Gang - It's been awhile since I've visited this thread. Glad to see that this has helped soo many people!! For those who plan on going through with this DIY fix, I'd like to re-iterate the screws are tough to take out so be prepared with the proper tools to remove them. Also glad to see one of the posters mentioned it possible to stop by a home depot and pick up some extra replacement screws for a few dollars! "As stated by ml30306 in post# 170, if you want to replace the 3 screws for the throttle unit for the RX300, get 2 units with bolt size M6 with 1" pitch and length of 60mm and ano
  2. Guys- It's been awhile since i visited this forum, but wanted to say, I just performed this again yesterday! Car is working great - I can't believe my post on this was 6 years ago!! Glad to see it can help soo many people. As usual, it was tough getting the factory screws out but that's where the grip locking pliers can help!! Cheers, Gang!!
  3. Hello Everyone, I know IACV has been a huge topic on the forum and I have found various pictures in the RX forum and ES forum on the idle air control valve (IACV) or as others call it the idle speed control valve (ISC). However, I have not found a "step by step" posting to date which definitively shows how to clean this thing so that my car stops giving me idling problems. Symptoms I have had included: - low and rough idling that would cause the car engine to start shaking after starting the car - this eventually got worse to the point that when I start my car, it would not idle unless I g

  5. ...but are extremly tight! I saw throttles , looks that are clean ! And I`m just wandering if I`m going in right way. What do You think about it ?

  6. ...there were no errors after I connected to OBD2 port. No indicators everything OK! But car will not start without acceleration pedal. Day before I`ve noticed while I was estanding on traffic lights that car was sometimes vibrating but very very gently and only if I was in DRIVE possition , just like the RPMs were a little bit below normal. Ive tried removed those 2 screws holding IACV...

  7. Hi I have 2001 Lexus RX300(europe)I`ve turned on my car - just like everyday, everything was okCar was working about 5 min, because I`ve just wanted to drive away from my garage. After 5min. I`ve turned off my car.I`ve cleaned garage and wanted to put RX back to garage. But I couldnt start it.. till the moment I`ve pushed acceleration pedal, then started immediately!!Could it be the IAC...

  8. Step By Step Instructions For Iacv(idle Air Control Valve)/isc/throttl

    I will say that this step by step was a clear and concise instruction. I worked at an electronics field engineer for a major government contractor and I created documents just like this... I made a lot of money doing so. If you were to do this for a living, you could make a killing.

    Thanks for savin...

  9. I agree..bear in mind i got the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S PLUS..they have a 45k mile warranty and were about 1k.
  10. how do you know when the brakes are gone? i suspect you'll hear a scratching/squeeling noise. I'm concerned cause i have 26k miles on my ride with the original brake pads..no issues so i hope it's not metal to metal yet...the brakes on my RX300 lasted till 60k!!..sounds like these GSes are not equipped with the same type of pads. =( Second question - do you have to complain to get the TSB for the dustless pads or will they just do it if you ask (even in my case with 26k miles?)
  11. Love the rubber all weather floor-mats. They are just great on my car. They protect the fabric mats and catch all the dirt and grime and all that good stuff. I live in Cali and don't really have to deal with snow, but I keep these in my car year round. Love it and don't regret it at all!
  12. Clarification - When you say lube the "Window Channel", what exact does that refer to? I tried to Google "Window Channel" and it appears that it's the "track" or railway" where the window slides along? (I think it's like rubber or felt on the RX)? So if I were to lube this piece, I'd roll my window all the way down, and sparingly apply this Sil-Glyde up and down the vertical "channel" on each side of the window?
  13. I greatly appreciate the feedback. I haven't previously thought about "bargaining" for tires though your suggestion makes sense in this economic climate. I want to streeeeeetch the life of my stock Yokos as much as I can, but I saw that the Michelin's at Costco have a sale for $70 off of 4 tires right now (which is OK - not great) Total cost for four tires runs to about $1100. In addition, the Bridgestones have a $100 off when you buy 4 as well- total is about $950. If you want to get down to comparing $/mile the Bridgestones slightly edge out the Michelins 2.3cents/mile to 2.4cents/mile
  14. I'm having trouble deciding between the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires which have a 45k warranty or the Bridgestone Potenza RE960A/S Pole Position tires - both are suppose to be very good. The Potenzas are at the top of the list with respect to tire rack reviews, however the Pilot Plus tires just came out and are suppose to be an improvement. Decisions...decisions...I need someone to sway me one way other another =P Thoughts?
