  1. mdscorp, I have a brand new and a used changer for your 2001 es, They both include all the panels for a first time install. Leave your email or pm me for all the details. Was there ever a cd changer installed in the car ? No, it comes without it from factory, the radio has support for CD player and I think it has a connector and probably a wire harness for it, but the glove compartment would need modification to fit the changer, I understand there are cd changer glove compartment conversion kits ? how much do you want for the changer ? any other suggestions so i can install it ?
  2. I purchased a 2001 ES300, it doesn't come with the CD changer but the head controls support and have the wiring for it. in this model the cd changer goes in the glove compartment. I woudl like to try to find one and install it, anybody knows where I can find one ? has anybody had to do this ?
  3. the people that is posting they use additives with your gasoline, is this using regular gasoline and the additives or you use the additivies regardless ?
  4. I just purchased a 2001 ES300 in MINT condition, only 29,000 miles on it, it rides smooth as a feather I love it. I read the manual where the use of high octane gasoline is a must to keep the engine running smooth and to keep performance at it's best. At the prices gasoline is today I am trying to find out the general consensus on this, is it really worth it to pay $3.29 the gallon of premium gasoline or is this only a recommendation and regular gas can be used without harming the lexus smooth ride and engine performance ? thanks all
  5. thanks for the explanation. I see one end (the fan end) is really easy, I am trying to figure out the other end how hard it is to replace, does this has to be done from underneath the car or by taking the passenger side wheel and working through here ? do I have to take out the whole fuel injector assy and work from top ? thanks again...
  6. I found out that this is called PRESSURE HOSE and is part of the cooling system.. my question is, how is this hose related to the P/S system and how is leaking P/S fluid ????
  7. yes, you're right, it is the pressure hose. Now a question, how is this pressure hose to the cooling fan related with the P/S system as to leak PS Fluid ??
  8. so instead of buying power steering fluid I just pour regular transmision fluid with drexon atf ? after searching the whole day I finally foudn the leak of the power steering fluid, it is right under the fuel injector assembly, this is a hose that I think goes from the punp around the angine, under the distributor and connects to the engine fan in front. long hose I guess difficult to replace. Does anybody knows the technical name for such hose ? I been looking in different online catalogs but could not find anything like it. thanks all I found these hoses from a lexus online catalog f

  12. I see my 93 ES300 needs power steering fluid with ATF, i have gone to different auto supply stores but can't find it, where can I find this ?
  13. A power steering fluid leak could be from: 1. steering rack o-rings 2. power steering pump seals 3. hydraulic radiator fan 4. damaged hoses/lines that connect 1, 2, & 3 Check them all!! the mechanic I took the car to tells me the leak is from the steering rack and he quoted me over $1,000 for the job, does this makes sense ?
  14. i noticed a few days ago my 93 ES300 was leaking power steering fluid, filled it up and in about 1 hour lost it again, instected the high pressure hose and the low pressure hose and didn't see anything coming from them, lifted the car, moved the steering left and right and could not see a leak. anybody has any ideas ?
  15. I am thinking about replacing the axle assy on my 93 ES300 after researching parts in the internet I realize apparently the right axle is different of the left axle ? I have also seen different brands of reconditioned axles. can anybody recommend some brand over others ? is replacing the 2 axles a DIY task ? thanks
