  1. do any companies make a good leather/pleather cover for the front seats of my 98 LS400? or how much could I expect to spend if I wanted to get them reupholstered? my seats are looking like crap nowadays thanks
  2. dude thats freakin awesome, my starter went bad, i came here to find out how to change it, and thanks to this post i didnt even have to search. thanks bulls I
  3. I'm gonna agree. I've never seen a brokedown ls that wasnt my own
  4. I've noticed that too, it's a source of great amusement to me. the way i see it, after 10 years that L turned into a T, it's just a nice toyota in my opinion. no matter what; people will find something to hold against you, so it could be worse.
  5. i had a similar problem. for me it was the timing belt, both ocv's, and spark plugs. 1500 bucks because a friend of mine did it cheap. i dont know how the wiring harness could have done that the mechanic probably wants you to pay for unnecessary bull *BLEEP*
  6. how the hell is there a restocking fee for a part that they didnt have in stock?
  7. you mean "crotch cooler" ??? lol yeah, i mean crotch cooler, w/e you wanna call it i love it. it should be on every car
  8. i want that fridge in the new ones, and the 18" 5 spokes from the new ones, but i'm buying those next week. but i don't like the fact that the new ones dont have the "balls" vent, living in florida i love that feature on my '98
  9. i love these cars. just remember it could be worse, my friend was hit BY A DEER while driving his mom's miata. no, he didnt hit one, it hit him. a lil baby deer runs across the road, he slams on his brakes in time and stops. as he's sitting there in a cloud of tire smoke, he realizes the 1st deer was running b/c it was being chased by a very large deer. this large deer of course didnt have time to stop and plows into the side of his convertible, hits his door, does a flip over the car, NAILS MY FRIEND IN THE FACE AND BREAKS HIS NOSE, and lands on the other side of the car dead, leaving piles of deer hair in the car and 5k worth of damage at which point i told him... he shoulda got a lexus
  10. try hitting the dash above the guages while you're moving, not too hard though, that is a common problem, it's expensive to fix but a good tap does the trick, i have to do that in my car all the time. parts are a real pain to find for our cars, and many tools are lexus specific. but the cars are really reliable if properly maintained. so it's really your call whether or not to buy it, i havent seen the car in person so idk. good luck though
  11. does it work when you hold down the unlock button on the keyless entry?
  12. so i've noticed lately that when i roll my front left window up there is a weird clicking sound, three separate clicks to be specific. I assume it's something catching this bothers me because i assume it's a sign that my window is getting ready to stop working, and as a smoker i REALLY need my window to work properly. is this a common issue? and if so how do i go about fixing it? even if it isnt a common issue, can someone send me directions on how to take my door apart (98 LS400) so i can try to figure out whats wrong? I'm the DIY type but i've never taken a door apart thanks in advance, you guys are always very helpful PS... 18" 5 spoke rims from the newer LS430 coming in a few weeks... I can't wait
  13. i want the ls430 5 spokes too but not chrome, when i get them next month i'm gonna powder coat them a shade or 2 above black, speaking of which what is a good site to get cheap LS rims from? should i just ebay it or is there a better place? and bicol... that looks sweet
  14. I've found that for some reason, on a very intermittent basis the speedometer and tachometer needles don't move when i start driving, usually a solid tap on the dash while i'm moving makes them work again, but why is it doing this? is this a common issue? and what do i need to do to fix it? this is by no means an urgent problem, but i am pretty curious.
  15. that sounds like quite a frankenstein. what are you trying to accomplish here? putting a 1UZ-FE in a 240? why dont you just get an SR20DET for it? it would be a way easier swap and half the price, or if you really wanted to go V8 people put small block chevy motors in those. why would you wanna convert it to right hand driver? this is America! what happens when you wanna pass somebody? are you gonna let 2/3 of your car stick out into oncoming traffic to see if someone is coming the other way? and what do you mean convert it to a pickup? as in put a truck bed on it? thats the dumbest thing i've ever heard. I dont mean to sound like a prick but there is such thing as a dumb idea, and i think i just read one. you really oughta reconsider what work you wanna do, maybe having to sell that motor was a blessing in disguise. instead of learning everything there is to know about this motor how about i tell you the only thing you need to know about it... it shouldnt go in a 240sx
