  1. I have a 97 LS 400 so it's similar to yours.  I've finally got the two 14mm bolts removed but still couldn't remove the starter.  I've looked at the new starter & it's only attached via the 2 bolts so what the heck?  Was your popped right out?  Please advise.  Thanks, John

  2. Hi there,  I have a 97 LS 400 so it's the same as yours.  Did you have to remove the 2nd egr pipe in order to lift & remove the rear water brigde?  I couldn't get access to the top 2 egr pipe's bolts so I only disconnected the bottom 2 bolts right on top of the cat & was able to lift the brigde enough to get to the two 14mm starter bolts but the starter stuck in there.  I've looked at the new starter & it's only attached via the 2 bolts so what the heck?  Was your popped right out?  Did I miss any thing.  Please advise.  Thanks, John

  5. I have a 97 Lexus LS400. Does anyone know the OEM spark plug wire gage? I'd like to get the aftermarket wire set in the same diameter so I can re-use all the old hardware. Btw, which brand do you recommend for the wires? Also, is there a noticable improvement in performance when it comes to Iridium plugs such as the the NGK laser Iridium long life, NGK IX Iridium or just all hype? Would a regular platinum plugs be just fine? Thanks in advance.
