  1. In our area Auto Zone will read the fault light, and can tell if any are bad and which ones. They will give a readout of the replacements available. If you need the two on Bank One I can tell you which part numbers worked in my 2002 GS 300. Several are available for each position.
  2. Be sure to scrape the rust off the hub where the holes were. If not you may have a vibration about 60 MPH and wonder why. You can always check the runout with a dial indicator.
  3. You can get a kit from Advance Auto for about $10. Comes with a polishing buffer for a drill and several pads. Have done three cars with one kit and have pads enough for one more. Very good results. Firestone wanted $100 to do it. It's called , 5 minute Headlamp Lens Restorer.
  4. Remote keys lost their ability to communicate with the car.Called the dealer. Got some young thing who said, "what is wrong"? I reminded her she was the expert, I was the owner. No answer. offered to re initilize "it", for $110. What ever "it" is. Anyone out there had this before?
  5. Make sense, but the GS400 was more expensive not to mention takes more gas too :( About the more gas in the 400. My wife drives between Memmphis TN, and Ashville NC, on one tank of gas in her 2000, LS 400 with 90,000 miles on it. It's over 500 miles. I think her best time is under 9 hours. She gets 27 miles per gallon at between 70 MPH and 80. I tried that in my 2002 GS-300 Sport design trying to better her average. Went very easy and cruise when I could. My best tank was 27.4. So the diffence in the 300 and the 400 aren't going to break the bank. Around town they are very close, not enough to cry over. The 400 engine never breathes hard. After you muck up a highly engineered car, made by some of the best engineers in the world, it will cost you more than a 400. And you probably won't improve anything. Like someone said, it could be worse.
  6. My 2002 GS-300 Sport Design manual, page 251, calls for Denso SK16R-P11 plugs. That is the only one mentioned.
  7. HI I have a 2002 GS300 Sport and would like to update my nav system also. Where did you get your disc, and how much was it. Please answer to krearl@aol.com Thanks
  8. Advance Auto. Puralator 5790055. About $18.
  9. ADVANCE AUTO PURALATOR PART 5790055 $ 18.48, in Memphis
  10. I'm afraid they did send me the engine filter, but when I called them he swore up and down that I had the correct part # to match the cabin air filter. They said I could send it back for a full refund, no problem. But that still leaves me without a cabin air filter. I called my local Toyota dealer, and they don't even carry a cabin air filter for a 2001 Lexus GS300. I don't know who posted the previous message, but I'm not sure a Toyota cabin air filter is the same as a Lexus cabin air filter, seeing as they didn't even carry a Lexus cabin filter. They told me to call the Lexus dealer
  11. Buy it from Auto Zone. I put one in, in February. DENSO 234-4603, $150.99. Not cheap, but it fits right in. The two cheaper ones by BOSH had the wrong connectors.
  12. I also should have said, be sure the new probe looks just like the one you take out.
