  1. I live in Atlanta, GA and found a car on Autotrader in Davie, FL. near Ft Lauderdale. I need a reputable Lexus mechanic that would be willing to do a pre-purchase inspection for me. I plan to fly down Wed 12/19 and would like for someone to look it over for me before then. Any suggestions from that area?

    Rear Drivers side window switch issues

    After installing the NEW Main Window switch, I noticed that when raising the drivers window (auto) it didn't work on the first click. But worked fine on the second try. (weird). So, the new REAR drivers side window switch came in today and I installed it and I re-installed the old Main Switch . . . . . . and, you guessed it . . . . Wa-La! everything works! I guess just being able to vent here was a help, even though no one was listening . . . . . . . except zieke . . . . ..

    How To Change Serpentine Belt Tensioner?

    Really? I as able to find help from another forum. I changed the tensioner pulley bearings for about $24. Took me about 30 mins.

    How To Change Serpentine Belt Tensioner?

    My tensioner pulley is making noise.I replaced the rear idler pulley (can't get to the front one), but still have the noise. I've seen a couple posts about it, and some mention a DIY for replacing the tensioner pulley bearing. I can't seem to find the DIY anywhere. Can someone post a link for me? A part number for the bearing would be nice, also. Also, is the tensioner pulley bolt REVERSED THREAD? If not, mine is stuck solid!

  8. I cannot, for the life of me, find any DIY about changing the serpentine belt tensioner on a 2nd Gen RX350. Anybody know where I can find one, please post a link here Thank you

  11. Someone may have done this before. Who's idea was it to limit the search terms to 4 letters, anyway? Since we can't search for the word "oil" I'll put this on here. 02 GS300; When filling with oil, the design of the oil fill spout causes oil to overflow when oil is added too fast. The oil goes down around the spark plugs and plays havoc with the ignition. A really DUMB design. My workaround: Realizing that when adding oil air needs to escape at the same time. There is no place to do that except back up through the fill spout. This causes a air-lock and oil can't flow in and air flow out at the same time. I took a straw and inserted it into the case through the fill spout. I cut the funnel tip at an angle to allow oil to flow sideways. This worked great for me. Added a whole gallon of oil at one time and no backup at all. I will try to add pictures . . . . .

    Searching The Forums?

    Who's idea was it to limit search words to at least 4? How do you search for information regarding "oil", or "air" when it won't let you use a 3-lettered word?
  13. Looking for a new chrome "L" emblem for my steering wheel. Need to find a blown air bag with a good emblem I can swap out. I know someone has blown their airbag. I need it.
  14. UPDATE: the only time I feel the hesitation and shift delay is when I'm easing around a parking lot, going less that 10mph with a lot of stop/starts. I took it to Lexus of So Atl and they said the ECU was really out of date and they did a re-flash. So far I can't really tell a big difference with that either. The biggest thing is that the pedal is extremely light. Just barely pushing it and the car jumps. I have to hold my foot up off the pedal while driving, very uncomfortable. I've still gotta look into tightening the spring tension.

    Does The Gs300 Have An App Sensor?

    Thanks, I have tried adjusting the cable and it has seemed to help. Look for "GS300 Acceleration hesitation, FIX?"
