  1. yeah so i tackled this problem today.. fuel filter fixed the job.. $21 at advance auto parts find a small crack in the intake tube, i fixed that. then i cleaned out the throttle body, it was straight black and cleaned some of the inlet on the manifold, as much as i could get my fingers in there. then i replaced the fuel filter. really easy install, but little more fuel came out than i thought, i still smell like gasoline. results: drives better, does not cut/turn off, BUT, now i need a VSS vehicle speed sensor. i narrowed then down between napa/advance auto parts/oreillys.. but dont know exactly which one i need. i do know its the one that goes above the transmission.. they range in price between $77-$200 so, anyone know exactly which one i need? thanks for the help...
  2. so after fixing few other things on my car, i realize i need a speed sensor too. the problem is which one of these will get the job done. from advance auto parts> bwd speed sensor $166 bwd speed sensor 2 $77 ones from napa> napa speed sensor $249 napa speed sensor 2 $129 napa speed sensor 3 $116 oreillys> oreillys speed sensor, 2nd one on list for transmission thanks
  3. sorry about lack of few details... the car fully shuts off, engine off, but lights on the dash all light up so it keeps electricty. its not battery nor alternator nor timing belt. after it cuts off, you can turn it on again and drive, but have to keep it under 3000-3500 rpm or it begins to hesistate and shut off again. i have not driven it since then cause i was out all weekend, and will attempt to battle this tomorrow. should i start by examining issues like possible air line leaks anywhere, or the intake rubber pipe thing for any cracks, any sensor problems, or dirty egr...? thaks
  4. weird thing just started happening.. i was driving my daily driver, a 1995 lexus es300 and suddenly after about 3k rpm, the car started to lose power and turned off, fully shut down. this was during a short trip of about 5-7miles. no overheating problems, no exhaust smoke. i have no idea what this could be, only has 140k miles and has been maintained well. any help? thanks
