  1. I've had problems with my 12 disc CD player in a SC400 92. I found that Lexus had a recall on the player due to skipping and play malfunctions. I received a replacement free through Lex Corp.

Hello Sbaywoo, I understand your frustration so have provided more info. I don't remember who I spoke with at Lex Corp this happened about 6-7 years ago. I believe I got Lex Corp # a from the dealer. I spoke with the dealer prior to calling Lex and they wouldn't repl

  3. I just had my 300 in shop and I will be replacing idle control valve. $700 ouch! They also want to clean fuel injectors for $150/ Is that normal? Car has 155.550 miles and runs great. They are master toyota lexus tech's. =================================================== Twodmax, run you are about to get jacked. If you or a friend are some what handy you can clean this unit and save yourself $850. Read through my docs, you will find all you need to do this fix. Follow the test procedures to determine which part is bad. My Lex has 240,000 miles so this car just keeps going and going with
  4. Eureka! I have solved the problem, after cleaning my Idle Air Control Valve the car idled down and is purring like a kitten. Here are the details of what was done to fix the engine surge problem. After several days of research I was able to narrow down the potential problem parts. If your engine is idling high between 1000-2000 RPM these are the potential parts that must be tested for errors: the (MAF) Mass Air Flow Sensor, (IAC) Idle Air Control Valve, or Throttle Position Sensor. I recommend you purchase the Original Lexus Repair Manuals for further troubleshooting; there are 3 volumes well
  5. I have allowed the car to run for over 20 mins, but continue to get surging RPM. Actually when the car is cold it idles higher than normal about 1800 RPM then once the car warms up it tries to idle down then begins to surge at 1100-1700 RPM. It would really be nice to actually replace the correct part since parts for this vehicle can be be very expensive. Thanks
  6. Hey guys, its been a few days now and no one has replied to my post. I could really use your help is there any one out there that has experienced this problem. I had my mechanic look this error up in the online tech system called IDENTIFIX.COM and found that certified techs are saying this is a problem with the Idle Air Control Valve. Here's the catch, the parts cost is $650 - $726, that is outrageous for this small part. Anyone know were I can find an after market part or a used one?
  7. :chairshot: Hello guys, I could really use a little help on this one. My SC400 92 started running really bad after cleaning the engine. I now not to do that again, but here is whats happen, the engine runs very sluggish when accelerating and idles at 1000-2000 rpm thats about 35-45 mph. When I come to a stop the car jolts forward revving the engine at 1000-2000 rpm. Also when I put it park or neutral it sounds as if I am pressing the gas with the engine surging up and down. I have replaced the MAF twice with used parts and continue to have the same problem. Have any of you experienced and or
