  1. I need to replace my windshield washer fluid reservoir. ('93 ES300). Anyone know if a 92-93 V6 camry reservoir and pump are compatible? I ordered a coolant reservoir/overflow tank from a 92-93 camry and it fit perfect to replace my cracking/worn coolant overflow tank. So maybe the windshield fluid tank will fit too? It looks pretty similar, but I'm not sure. I don't have access to a camry to check it out--just going by the pics on ebay. Anyone know????
  2. http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/1104629883.html Look at the pic of the es300 in the ad--nearly identical with the chrome grill and all! Lexucan, is this your car for sale here in Denver??????
  3. I appreciate it CUMan, but unfortunately that wouldn't work on mine. My ES didn't come with the CD changer, and it also didn't come with the wiring from the trunk to the headunit b/c there was no CD changer. So I don't have anything I could hardwire. Unfortunately I don't have any "wires which carry the signal from your CD player to the radio system" I would still need the plug that goes into the back of the radio into the CD changer slot. Maybe I could find that at a junkyard. Then I could hardwire using that...but that would be hard to find. Curses!
  4. I put an OEM stereo in my '93--and I'd like to wire up my ipod directly to it (no more tape adapter). With most cars, there's an easy way to do this. Most OEM stereos with an AUX input in the rear (for a cd changer) you can buy aftermarket compatibility cables that go into the rear of the stereo (where the CD changer cable plugged in) and plug into your ipod on the other end. Anything like that for our stereos out there? I can't find it yet. Another option is any cable that connects to the back of our stereo (where the CD changer cable plugged in) and has RCA's on the other end--then I can just use an RCA/ipod adapter. Basically looking for any cable that plugs into the back of our stereo unit (where the cd changer cable plugged in) that has any kind of universal audio at the other end (3.5mm jack, RCA jacks, ipod connector, etc...) and with that I can make it work. Ya'll know of anything in existence out there like that?

  6. Sorry to break it to ya, but there are no altezza style lights for it. There's some how to's on modding them yourself, but no aftermarket altezza/european style tails.
  7. This is a common problem on our ES300s. There are some threads you'll find of folks trying different tactics. The sensor for current is real sensitive; so if you use most anything other than dealer bulbs the light will come on. Also, if there is any dirt in there or any corrosion on any of the wires. Most people can't get it to go away and learn to live with it. I yanked my instrument cluster and just removed the warning bulb altogether. Good luck!
  8. This weekend I'm going to do drain and refill my transmission fluid, and I'm going to drop the pan, clean it, and replace the transmission filter while I'm in there because I doubt it has ever been done on my '93 with 115kmi. Other cars I've done this on, just drop the pan, and you can see the filter right there. Some cars have a strainer--so you have to remove the pan, then remove the strainer, then you can get to the filter. Which is the ES300 like? Should I plan on needing to remove a strainer? Also, I was gonna put in Mobil 1 synthetic ATF; it is compatible with our trannys. Any advice on that either?
  9. Does anyone know off hand the fuel tank capacity in gallons? '93 ES300
  10. If you found oil on them/spark plug tube seals are bad, then they probably are time bombs for failure. Good call!
  11. I replaced both valve cover gaskets and spark plug tube seals (with OEM spark plug tube seals, a must), replaced the distributer inner o-ring, and let the oil pan gasket be for now. The oil pan gasket is a very slow seepage, about a tablespoon of oil a month. I also replaced a few other gaskets while in there, the cold start injector gasket and the inner gasket in the intake plenum that the cold start chamber uses, the PCV valve and grommet, and a few hoses. The real culprit was the rear valve cover gasket, that one was just spurting oil.
  12. Okay I just ditched it all and installed an OEM stereo. Good sound.
