  1. That being the case, it would not surprise me if the sender unit needs to be replaced.
  2. Is there an issue that you are having with your present diff that has prompted you to go down this path? - just curious.
  3. I would search yelp.com for auto electric shop and peruse the ratings. There are many in Mass.
  4. Using a dry lubricant (graphite) is best, since particulates tend to stick to wet lubricants, eventually causing issues down the road. I injected graphite into our ignition key hole, 10 years ago and have not had an issue, since.
  5. Most likely, the lumbar support is an inflatable bladder that requires compressed air from a compressor. It could be that the compressor had shorted, causing the drain.
  6. Your plugs were due to be changed at 120,000 miles! Ours is almost 15 years old (come April) and there is a slight oil seepage that makes its way to the exhaust manifold (smells a bit after driving for 30 minutes), but these are no visible signs of leakage. The oil level is always good and everything else is working well at 125,000 miles.
  7. See if it continues if you switch the flow of air to upper, only. If it continues, switch to lower, only. I noticed that a burning smell is noticeable when the air flow is set to lower or both lower and upper vents. When I switch to lower, only, no flow is detected, yet the burning smell is intermittently noticeable. My theory is that the vent valve is not functioning correctly and may be drawing excessive current. Also, have you changed or had changed the oil, lately? The filter oil tends to drip down on the exhaust pipe but if it is cleaned up thoroughly, the burning oil smell goes away after a few days or less of driving.
  8. I've never noticed the engine vibrating like that, but then again, we do not have an LPG system as you do.
  9. No problems with the clock in the 14.5years we've had our RX400h
  10. Excellent work! Thanks for sharing. The bright LED lights of newer vehicles tends to make our older ones look very dated. Before I bought my MX5 Miata, the previous owner, at the age of 21 had done essentially the same thing. He even installed LED fog lights. Every mod is still working after more than 7 years.
  11. The first thing I would do is to make sure your battery is fully charged and that all cable connections are tight and free of corrosion.
  12. Side note: We are only now replacing the remote battery after 14.5 years! Those Lexus engineers really know how to design efficient battery circuits.
