    IS250
  1. Normally how long does the battery that comes with the IS250 last?
  2. Hi thanks for your reply, but I am positive the noise is not coming from the dash. I only hear the noise when the tachometer is moving.
  3. I have a 2007 IS250 and when starting up the car the tachometer makes a rattling sound, but as soon as the car starts the sound goes away. Sometimes I also hear it when I am driving but the sound is like a soft rattle. Does anyone know what is causing the noise or is this normal? Thanks.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion, 6.5 quarts is a good round number. I can save the half quart for the next oil change.
  5. Thank you! Next time I'll just pour in 7 quarts.
  6. The IS250 has a motor oil capacity of 6.7 quarts, would it be okay to just use 7 quarts? My problem is measuring of the 0.7 quarts and saving the remaining 0.3 quarts every time I changed the oil. Will it harm the engine if I use 7 quarts? Thanks
  7. Your car is looks really nice! I am planning to tint my car and just wondering what you have on yours? Do you think titanium window tint will look good?
  8. Thanks everyone for all your advise and recommendations.
  9. I just notice a nail in one of my rear tires. Does the Lexus new car warranty covers this type of repair. Thanks
  10. I think I did it on my '07 is250, but the beeping is still there when I start the car. Is that normal or is that beeping also suppose to go away?
  11. I heard this before. Is there any validity to that practice? Sure there is, especially if you reset the ECU prior to making that drive. I need help with this. Can you please elaborate? :) Well in the first place we used to blow the carbon etc out of motors by driving at high speeds. Since that isn't all that safe etc you can do the same thing by gearing down and running somewhat high RPM without having to drive 100 plus mph. I think that even with high tech engines and good gas that over time there is some buidup that can be somewhat cleared this way. For instance if a car is driven slow and idled a lot like a taxi, the motor is going to get crud built up. As for the ECU. When you reset it, it goes to new car default and leans how you drive. So if you drive a little hard once in awhile it's going to learn that. There have been tests on dyno of normal driven car power and then reset ECU and drive fast power and there is a significant difference. How do you reset the ECU?
  12. Is time a factor? I probably average about 5000 miles a year, can I change my oil once a year or should it be every 6 months?
  13. Does anyone know if Lexus Obsidian Black has single stage paint or clear coated?
  14. Thank for the info. Now I know my car okay. :D
  15. Jay, Go to this website. Also. you do not have to remove the engine cover to change the oil. http://my.is/forums/f87/how-change-oil-350...d=1#post4014700
